Thomas Jane is no stranger to bringing Stephen King's written works to life onscreen. Having already appeared as David Drayton in The Mist and Henry in Dreamcatcher, Jane will next play Wilfred James, a husband with a dark secret in Netflix's movie adaptation of King's novella 1922.

According to THR, Jane will be joined by Molly Parker as Wilfred's wife, Arlette, in 1922, which is filming in Vancouver with Zak Hilditch (These Final Hours) behind the camera, directing from a script he wrote based on King's haunting tale of family murder and vengeance from beyond the grave. 1922 was published as one of four novellas in King's 2010 story collection, Full Dark, No Stars.

THR reveals that the cast also includes Dylan Schmid, Kaitlyn Bernard, Brian D’Arcy James, and Neal McDonough, with Ross M. Dinerstein on board as a producer.

Packed with rats, guilt, and a creeping sense of unshakable dread, 1922 is an atmospheric story about a husband and son's murderous deed committed one fateful night on their farm in Nebraska. 1922 is the third story from Full Dark, No Stars to be adapted into a film, with A Good Marriage and Big Driver previously coming to life onscreen (the last story left to be adapted is the absolutely unsettling Fair Extension).

A premiere date has yet to be revealed, but we'll keep Daily Dead readers updated on the 1922 film, as well as Netflix's other King adaptation, Gerald's Game.
