Netflix has released the first official trailer for 1922, a feature-film adaptation of Stephen King’s novella of the same name. And it’s definitely a sign the film has come along nicely.
Actor Thomas Jane plays the lead role, which is quite interesting as Jane has also starred in Stephen King adaptations The Mist and Dreamcatcher. It’s fun getting to see him return to the world of King, considering that it’s been ten years since The Mist was released.
Check out the trailer below!
In 1922, the story opens with the confession of Wilfred James to the murder of his wife, Arlette, following their move to Hemingford, Nebraska onto land willed to Arlette by her father.
Interestingly enough, the original story was partially inspired by HP Lovecraft’s The Rats in the Walls. This becomes especially clear during one of Wilfred’s lines early on in the story, “I know what is making the sounds I hear in the walls.”
Jane will play Wilfred James, with Molly Parker as Arlette James, Dylan Schmid as Henry James, Kaitlyn Bernard as Shannon Cotterie, Brian d’Arcy James as Sheriff Jones, and Neal McDonough as Harlan Cotterie.
The film is written and directed by Zak Hilditch. It’ll be the second Netflix Original Stephen King adaptation, following Gerald’s Game which hits September 29. It’s certainly a good time to be a Stephen King fan will all these adaptations coming left and right.
1922 will be available for streaming on Netflix on October 20.
