1922 is based on Stephen King’s 131-page story telling of a man’s confession of his wife’s murder. The tale is told from the perspective of Wilfred James, the story’s unreliable narrator who admits to killing his wife, Arlette, with his son in Nebraska. But after he buries her body, he finds himself terrorized by rats and, as his life begins to unravel, becomes convinced his wife is haunting him.

The Director on Casting

“I met with Thomas Jane, and we just clicked from the get go.”

“He really connected with the material and that’s all you want in a leading man. Someone who totally gets the character, and he just made Wilfred his own from that point forward. Thomas is just mesmerizing in the role. He committed to the film 100%”
