Since I enjoyed the "Good Marriage" film so much & the "Shades of Gray" is in theaters, the time is right for 'Gerald's Game'! Anyone agree that the climate couldn't be better?!? Powers that be please make this finally happen!!
No. You don't want the market flooded with soundalikes or wannabes. I'd give it another five years before even considering Gerald's Game if I were a director.

Considering the length of time it takes for a movie to be completed & released I'd be happy if someone would just start developing the screen play... :) I'm going to hold out hope!!! I'd much rather see this on screen before "Cell"-definitely enough zombie movies already... Doing my Rainman impression ~ definitely definitely enough zombies~

I don't know if it's ever been mentioned, but I think Gerald's Game would make a great stage play and be a tour-de-force role for some actress out there.
I have to say, I agree more with this than a movie. I think It would make for a pretty boring movie, I think I would take a very special director to capture this on film considering the book is such a psychological one.
