Apple TV Plus has dropped a trailer for Lisey’s Story and I probably shouldn’t have watched it so late at night. The upcoming horror mini-series is based on Stephen King‘s 2006 novel of the same name. It follows Lisey Landon (played by Julianne Moore), who is haunted by her husband’s death. Scott (played by Clive Owen) was a successful author who would slip into a different reality. It was those moments that gave him the inspiration for his novels.
After his death, he leads Lisey on a scavenger hunt to solve a series of riddles and uncover clues that lead her to Maine. Unfortunately, I get the feeling that unlike P.S. I Love You, this isn’t going to lead Lisey to move on with her life. In fact, from the trailer, it looks like it is leading her to even more psychological horrors and a possible cult created around Scott’s novels. Pablo Larraín directs the series and King himself writes each episode.
Lisey’s Story also stars Ron Cephas Jones and Dane Dehaan. It is set to release on Apple TV Plus starting June 4, 2021. We have linked the trailer below. What do you think of this new Stephen King miniseries? Let us know in the comments below and on social media!
