Screen Media picks up “A Good Marriage” Stephen King thriller

PanARMENIAN.Net - Screen Media Films has acquired North American rights to thriller “A Good Marriage”, adapted from Stephen King’s short story from the collection “Full Dark, No Stars”, Variety said.

King wrote the screenplay, and Peter Askin directed the film, starring Joan Allen, Anthony LaPaglia, Kristen Connolly and Stephen Lang. Screen Media plans to distribute the film in early October — the start of the Halloween season — with a nationwide theatrical release accompanied by a day-and-date VOD platform release.

LaPaglia and Allen portray a married couple, with the wife discovering the horrifying stranger inside her husband while he’s away on a business trip — ending a good marriage.

“I’m delighted that ‘A Good Marriage’ is going to be available to the moviegoing public very soon, and hope we can scare the hell out of millions of people,” King said. “To me, that’s always an exciting prospect.”

The Reno Productions film is produced by Will Battersby and Per Melita.
