Gerald’s Game director wants to take on more Stephen King adaptations
With Gerald’s Game proving to be a critical success for Netflix, director Mike Flanagan is considering what other Stephen King adaptations would be of interest to him. In an interview with expert King website Lilja’s Library, Flanagan revealed the following:
“There are so many.But the ones I’d want to do the most are Doctor Sleep and Lisey’s Story. In both cases, it’s because I identify with the protagonists so much. Lisey’s Story is a stunning piece of work, a beautiful exploration of marriage. And who wouldn’t want to venture back into the world of Danny Torrance?”
Mom and Dad trailer released
Mom and Dad stars Oscar winner Nicolas Cage (Leaving Las Vegas, Raising Arizona), Selma Blair (Hellboy, Cruel Intentions), Anne Winters (“13 Reasons Why,” #RealityHigh), and Zackary Arthur (“Transparent,” The 5th Wave). Written and directed by Brian Taylor (Crank, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance), the film marks his first solo effort as a writer.
Nicolas Cage and Selma Blair star in this pitch-black horror-comedy about a worldwide mass hysteria where, for 24 brutal hours, parents turn violently against their own children.
Your parents brought you into this world and they most certainly can take you out of it…even if they have to hunt you down first.
Mom and Dad had its World Premiere at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival and U.S. Premiere at Fantastic Fest 2017 to positive reviews. The film is currently holding 85% Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes.
Momentum Pictures will be releasing Mom and Dad in select Theaters, VOD, and Digital HD on January 19th.
