Peter Askin to Direct Stephen King’s A Good Marriage


A tale culled from the pages of Stephen King’s Full Dark, No Stars is in line for a screen adaptation.

Atlas International has tapped Peter Askin to helm the story “A Good Marriage.”  Askin’s credits include Company Man and the documentary Trumbo.

The synopsis for “A Good Marriage” goes like this:

Darcy Anderson discovers her husband has been keeping an especially terrible secret for years. What happens when, on a perfectly ordinary evening, all the things you believed in and took for granted are turned upside-down? What do you do and who do you call on when you discover that your good marriage has been built on a nightmare foundation of torture and murder?

Full Dark, No Stars was originally published in November 2009.  Casting is underway for “A Good Marriage.”
