Last month director Mike Flanagan (Oculus, Ouija: Origin of Evil) revealed that his long-gestating Stephen King adaptation Gerald’s Game is moving forward at Netflix, and now we have details on the film’s cast.
Deadline is reporting that Carla Gugino (Wayward Pines) and Bruce Greenwood (Star Trek) are set to star as Jessie and Gerald Burlingame, with the supporting cast including Henry Thomas (E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial), Carel Struycken (The Addams Family), Kate Siegel (Hush), and Chiara Aurelia (Agent Carter).
Gerald’s Game sees “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, »

Stephen King's 1992 novel Gerald's Game is one of the author's more unconventionally creepy novels, and bringing it to life onscreen could be one of the more intriguingly challenging adaptations for a filmmaker. Mike Flanagan is up for the task, though, and Netflix has announced that filming begins on the movie version of Gerald's Game today in Alabama with a cast that includes Carla Gugino, Bruce Greenwood, and Kate Siegel.
Press Release: Netflix announced today that Carla Gugino (The Space Between Us, San Andreas, Watchmen) and Bruce Greenwood (Star Trek into Darkness, Star Trek) will star as ‘Jessie’ and ‘Gerald’ in Mike Flanagan’s (Universal’s upcoming Ouija: Origin of Evil, Hush, Oculus) Gerald’s Game for Intrepid Pictures.

What a way to start off the week! The formidable cast list for Showtime's forthcoming Twin Peaks revival series was revealed this morning, and man, is it a doozy. In addition to boasting such key returning players as Kyle MacLachlan (Dale Cooper), Sheryl Lee (Laura Palmer/Maddy Ferguson) and Sherilyn Fenn (Audrey Horne), there are a number of surprising A-listers in the mix including Michael Cera, Trent Reznor, Amanda Seyfried and Naomi Watts. On the downside, a not-insignificant number of cast members from both the original series and the 1992 prequel film Fire Walk with Me are completely absent from the list. Where, for instance, is Lara Flynn Boyle (or Moira Kelly, for that matter)? Michael Ontkean? Piper Laurie? Joan Chen? Anyone from the mill? (Literally, there is no one from the mill.) So while I'm thankful that most of the major players are back in action, I can't help but »

The new "Twin Peaks" isn't slated to debut on Showtime until 2017, but a flurry of speculation about it happened last week with a tweet from Go For Locations indicating that filming had wrapped on the "first two seasons" of the series.
The episode count for the David Lynch-directed series was always in question, but that tweet suggested we'd be getting even more episodes than originally planned. Said tweet has since been deleted, so we'll have to wait to see how that pans out.
in the meantime in more official news, Showtime, Lynch and Mark Frost has released the official cast list for the new series with a whopping 217 names across the various episodes - a list that includes some real surprise big name inclusions such as Monica Bellucci, Michael Cera, Naomi Watts, Tim Roth, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Eddie Vedder, Ashley Judd, Ernie Hudson, Jim Belushi, Richard Chamberlain, Laura Dern, »
