Stephen King's A Good Marriage Set For October Release

Screen Media has obtained the North American rights to A Good Marriage, adapted by horror maven Stephen King from his own 2010 novella, Deadline reports.

Anthony LaPaglia and Joan Allen star in the domestic thriller as a couple whose 25-year marriage unravels when Darcy discovers a shocking secret about her husband. Kristen Connolly and Stephen Lang also star in the film, which is directed by Peter Askin.

Screen Media will reportedly open theatrically and day-and-date on video on demand ans streaming services in October, presumably with the idea that "Stephen King" is always a good name to trot out in time for Halloween.

"I'm delighted that A Good Marriage is going to be available to the movie going public very soon, and hope we can scare the hell out of millions of people. To me, that's always an exciting prospect," said King. A Good Marriage was originally published in King's Full Dark, No Stars collection.
