Earlier today, Stephen King tweeted that the film adaption of his short story 1922 looked great, as well the other upcoming adaptations in the works, including IT and The Mist. The tweet implies that all of the projects have wrapped filming.
Punisher star Thomas Jane, who appeared in the first film adaption of The Mist, has been cast as Wilfred James, a Nebraska farmer plotting the murder of his wife Arlette, played by Deadwood actress Molly parker.
Dylan Schmid (Horns), Kaitlyn Bernard (Haven), Brian D’Arcy James (Spotlight), and Arrow’s Neal McDonough co-star in this haunting film.
Wilfred James, a farmer in Hemingford Home, Nebraska, owns eighty acres of farmland that have been in his family for generations. His wife Arlette owns an adjoining one-hundred acres willed to her by her father. Wilfred scorns the thought of living in a city, but Arlette is discontented with farm life and wants to move to Omaha. She seeks to sell her land to a livestock company for use as a pig farm and slaughterhouse. If she does so, Wilfred’s property will no longer be farmable and he will be forced to sell as well. Wilfred resorts to manipulating his teenaged son, Henry, into helping him murder his own mother, afterwards the two feel as if they are being haunted or that they are cursed.
1922 will appear alongside the adaptation of King’s novel Gerald’s Game on Netflix. King’s Mr. Mercedes, IT and The Dark Tower, are also headed our way along with The Mist series. The Stand and Revival are also in development, where they have been for a while. Stephen King and J.J. Abrams have teamed up for the series Castle Rock, though a premiere date has been announced.
