Stephen King's Misery 4K Blu-ray artwork & release date

A few years back you may remember there was a stage production put on based on the novel MISERY by Stephen King. The play starred Bruce Willis and Laurie Metcalf (aka Billy's crazy-ass mother from SCREAM 2) as novelist Paul Sheldon and his deranged fan Annie Wilkes.

While we will never get to see that awesome version on film, which could be for the best, we can still check out the pics from the production RIGHT HERE. But it's not like we really needed another version of King's book because the original from director Rob Reiner is an utter classic.

Speaking of which, Scream Factory will be releasing a new Collector's Edition Blu-ray of the King classic on November 28th. Below you can peep the cover art for the new edition from artist Joel Robinson.

While the discs special features and specs are still up in the air, Scream Factory confirms the new edition will be a 4K restoration and will feature a new interview with Director Rob Reiner. The full list of bonus materials will be released in September.

MISERY synopsis:

Novelist Paul Sheldon doesn't remember the blinding blizzard that sent his car spinning off the road. He doesn't remember being nursed back from unconsciousness. But he will never forget Annie Wilkes.

James Caan and Academy Award® winner Kathy Bates star in the bone-shattering thriller Misery, adapted from the novel by Stephen King. As Paul (Caan) recuperates from his injuries in the secluded cabin of his benefactor Annie (Bates), he begins to discover that beneath the seemingly kind and naive exterior of his self-described "number one fan" lurks a mind that is cunning, unhinged, and bent on keeping her favorite writer as her personal prisoner for the rest of his "cock-a-doodie" life ... and Sheldon must engage his savior-turned-captor in a battle of wills that will push them both to the brink.

Adapted by two-time Oscar®-winning screenwriter William Goldman and directed by Rob Reiner (Stand By Me, The Princess Bride), Misery is considered by critics and fans (number ones and others) to be among the greatest horror-thrillers of all-time. Revisit this classic tonight with your friends ... after all, Misery loves company.

MISERY was directed by Rob Reiner from a screenplay by William Goldman, based on the novel by Stephen King. The film stars Kathy Bates and James Caan.

MISERY hits Blu-ray via Scream Factory November 28th.
