The upcoming Apple TV limited series adaptation of Stephen King’s Lisey’s Story continues to move forward with another casting addition. As reported by Deadline, Joan Allen (Room, Death Race) is set to star opposite previously-announced cast members Julianne Moore and Clive Owen in the project which has been adapted by the author himself.
Lisey’s Story is a dark tale of psychological horror that follows Lisey Landon, the widow of a famous novelist who recently passed away. The story takes place both in the present as well as the past as Lisey recalls traumatic memories of her time with her husband, his fans, his special gift, and his own past filled with death and severe mental illness across his family’s troubled history.
The series stars Oscar winner Julianne Moore (Still Alice), Clive Owen (Gemini Man), and Joan Allen (Room), and will be produced under J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions banner, with the leading lady also on board as executive producer alongside Ben Stephenson. Pablo Larrain is directing with author Stephen King penning each episode. Abrams has been working with Apple on a number of exclusive projects recently, with this adaptation being only the latest.
There’s no word yet on when the Lisey’s Story limited series will make its way to Apple’s streaming service, but we will be sure to keep you posted with all the latest right here on Dead Entertainment.
