Carla Gugino and Bruce Greenwood Cast As Leads In "Gerald's Game"
Carla Gugino and Bruce Greenwood will star in Netflix's adaptation of Stephen King's novel Gerald's Game. The two leads join already announced cast members Henry Thomas, Carel Struycken, Kate Siegel, and Chiara Aurelia. Mike Flanagan (Oculus, Before I Wake) will direct the film.
The synopsis is as follows: "Gerald and Jessie Burlingame head to their summer home on a warm weekday in October for a romantic interlude that involves adult games. After being handcuffed to her bedposts, Jessie tires of her husband’s games, until things take an unexpectedly tragic turn. She’s left handcuffed, trapped and alone as painful memories from her childhood bedevil her. Her only company is a hungry stray dog, the voices that populate her mind, and possibly someone watching her from the corner of the dark bedroom.
No release date has been announced for Gerald's Game but production has already begun in Mobile, AL.
