Stephen King Novel ‘Gerald’s Game’ To Be Adapted By ‘Oculus’ Helmer Mike Flanagan And Intrepid Pictures

This is great news for Stephen King fans!

Oculus and Somnia director Mike Flanagan has geraldcommitted to next helm Gerald’s Game, based on the bestselling novel by Stephen King. Flanagan wrote the script with his writing partner Jeff Howard. Trevor Macy and his Intrepid Pictures banner will produce, as he also did on Flanagan’s two horror films.

Flanagan and Macy originally intended the next picture to be Diver, a film that would have started production this summer. They’ve pushed that picture back and instead will plunge full on into Gerald’s Game, which is casting for a fall start and will be selling here at Cannes. King is very hands on and particular about filmmakers he trusts with rights to his novels. He takes upfront option fees as low as $1 (against a healthy back end), and when you are lucky enough to get one, you try to move fast.
