During this year’s Cannes Film Festival, it was announced that a film adaptation of Stephen King’s A Good Marriage was going into development. We haven’t heard anything since, but it has been revealed that Joan Allen recently signed on for the lead role.
A Good Marriage is a short story that was part of 2010′s Full Dark, No Stars. Joan Allen will be playing the role of Darcy Anderson, who “learns more about her husband of over twenty years than she would have liked to know when she stumbles literally upon a box under a worktable in their garage.”
Stephen King wrote the screenplay and Peter Askin will be directing. While Askin is known for his documentary work (Trumbo), he recently directed the stage production of Stephen King’s Ghost Brothers of Darkland County. Filming was previously planned to take place this summer in New York, but has been pushed up. »

Chloe Moretz is hard at work making the new film version of Stephen King's Carrie, but now another project based on one of the author's spooky stories has found its leading lady. Joan Allen, who reprised her role as Pam Landy in The Bourne Legacy this summer, is now attached to star in A Good Marriage, a new feature based on one of King's short stories from Full Dark, No Stars. Peter Askin, who directed the drama Certainty in 2011 and the documentary Trumbo in 2007, is helming the new film. THR says the story is about Darcy (Allen), a woman who learns that her husband of 25 years, with whom she has had two children, has actually been living a "sinister and gruesome double life." After learning this information, she must decide how far she will be able to go to keep her family together.Unlike many of King's stories, which »
Looks like yet another Stephen King adaptation is on its way (this one joins the in-production Carrie, the still-up-for-grabs The Dark Tower, that apparent two-film It adaptation, the long-rumored The Stand remake, and maybe even an Under the Dome series and a few Rose Madder films, just for fun) to theaters, but this one is a much less well-known property that has a far more homegrown sense of terror to it than some of those old King classics. THR reports that Joan Allen will star in A Good Marriage, which King has adapted from his own novella. Peter Askin (Trumbo, Searching for Certainty) will direct the film, which comes from King’s 2010 short story collection “Full Dark, No Stars.” Shockingly, it’s not really a story about a good marriage. Allen will star as Darcy Anderson, one-half of a seemingly normal and well-adjusted couple. Darcy and her husband, Bob, live and work together in relative harmony until »

Timothy Bottoms became an overnight sensation at the height of the so-called “Easy Riders and Raging Bulls” era, after landing the leading role in The Last Picture Show (1971), Peter Bogdanovich’s film about the social and sexual rites of small town Texans in the early 1950s. Internationally acclaimed for his portrait of Sonny, a sensitive kid struggling to find his way in the harsh landscape of post-war America, the then-twenty year-old Bottoms suddenly found himself not only in-demand as a rising young star, but a major celebrity, as well, with younger brothers Sam (who co-starred in The Last Picture Show), Joseph and Ben following in their older brother’s footsteps, making names for themselves on stage and screen. Bottoms reprised the role of Sonny for Picture Show's 1990 sequel, Texasville.
