(PCM) Actor Bruce Willis will be making his Broadway debut this fall in the upcoming adaption of the Stephen King novel “Misery”. “Misery” was also adapted into a film back in 1990 which starred Kathy Bates and James Caan.
Willis will star as the bedridden novelist, Paul Sheldon, that was played by Caan in the film version and the iconic role of the psychotic fan Annie Wilkes will be taken on by theater star Elizabeth Marvel. According to the New York Times, “The play is by William Goldman, who wrote the screenplay for ‘Misery’ (based on the Stephen King novel) and won Academy Awards for his film scripts for ‘Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid’ and ‘All the President’s Men”
Will Frears will direct the upcoming play, which he premiered back in 2012 at the Bucks County Playhouse in New Hope, Pennsylvania. At this time no dates or theater information have been announced for the Broadway show.
