Alex Ross Perry To Helm “The Dark Half”

Alex Ross Perry To Helm The Dark Half

MGM is teaming with “Queen of Earth” and “Her Smell” director Alex Ross Perry for a new film adaptation of Stephen King 1989 horror novel “The Dark Half”.

The story follows best-selling author Thad Beaumont who sells grisly crime novels under the name George Stark. When his pseudonym is exposed, the author and his wife give the other author a ceremonial burial – resulting in George Stark coming alive and going on a murder spree.

George Romero helmed the previous film adaptation which starred Timothy Hutton and met mixed reviews and poor box-office.
