j_jesusvaldez What a weird day of a #shoot with the #lostdetective. This random lady from lithowania was walking by and asked if she could watch. I said sure then she ended up being a stand in. Soooo weird.

movietrivia99 After refusing to speak about his motivations for writing Misery for two decades, Stephen King finally came out and stated that it is indeed about his battle with substance abuse. Kathy Bates' character is a representation of his dependency on drugs and what it did to his body - making him feel alone, separated from everything, while hobbling any attempts he made at escape. In his statement he said he didn't come out with it at the time because he wasn't ready and because he was afraid it would detract from the story◆
Annie Wilkes is Stephen King's favourite written character because she was always surprising to write, with unexpected depth and sympathy◆In 1991, Kathy Bates became the first woman to win an Oscar for Best Actress in a horror/thriller for her role as Annie Wilkes◆As of 2013 this is the only Stephen King adaptation to receive an Academy Award◆
King was so impressed with Kathy Bates' performance that he later wrote two more roles for her. The title role in his 1995 novel (Dolores Claiborne) was written with Bates in mind. King also wrote the script for 1994's (The Stand). His original novel featured a male character named Ray Flowers. Upon hearing that Bates wanted to be involved in the mini-series, King re-wrote it to be a woman, just so Bates could play the part◆ The "guy who went mad in a hotel nearby" reference in the film is about Jack Nicholson's character in (The Shining) which was also based on a novel written by Stephen King◆
Ironically,  Jack Nicholson was offered the role of Paul Sheldon (James Caan) but passed because he wasn't sure he wanted to do another movie based on one of Stephen King's novels after what he had experienced with Stanley Kubrick on The Shining◆

  •   movietrivia99 Anjelica Huston¬†was offered the leading role, and was interested, but was unable to accept it due to her commitment to¬†(The Grifters). Bette Midler¬†also turned the role down before it went to¬†Kathy Bates‚óÜ
    Annie Wilkes' killing spree is loosely based on that of Genene Jones, a nurse who is believed to have killed as many as 50 children who were in her care over a two-year period‚óÜ
    One of Stephen King's first typewriters had a malfunctioning "N" key, just like the one used by James Caan in the movie◆ After seeing The Shining, director (Rob Reiner) was immediately inspired to direct a movie based on a Stephen King novel◆Jessica Lange was up for the role of Annie Wilkes, at one point◆ The original idea for the novel had Annie planning to kill Paul Sheldon by feeding him to Misery the Pig, and take his skin to bind the book he's written. The title would have been The Annie Wilkes 1st Edition◆ The character (Virginia) played by Frances Sternhagen was created entirely for the film and was not in the novel◆ A video of the 1989 film (When Harry Met Sally) also directed by Rob Reiner is visible in the general store◆In Screenwriter, William Goldman's book (Four Screenplays) the role of (Paul Sheldon) was offered to and turned down by William Hurt, Kevin Kline, Michael Douglas, Harrison Ford, Dustin Hoffman, Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Richard Dreyfuss, Gene Hackman, Robert Redford, and Warren Beatty. Goldman revealed that few actors wanted the role because Annie Wilks overshadowed him so much as a character. Warren Beatty commented before declining that the hobbling scene made Paul Sheldon "a loser for the rest of the film". Goldman was determined to keep that scene in the film as it was his favorite from the Stephen King novel◆ 8h
  •   movietrivia99 The publication date of the novel was June 8,¬†1987‚óÜReiner kept some of the gory stuff out of the film that were in the book: such as Annie slicing off Paul's thumb with an¬†electric knife when he complains about a missing letter on the typewriter‚óÜ Or Annie ridding over the police trooper with her¬†lawnmower‚óÜ In the original novel, Annie lops off one of Paul's feet with an axe, but Reiner insisted that it be changed to her only breaking his ankles‚óÜAnnie was always intended in the novel to be an amalgam of King's scariest fans‚óÜMary Tyler Moore¬†wanted the role of Annie Wilkes‚óÜThe main character Paul Sheldon's novels are published by Viking, the same publishing company that published¬†Stephen King's books at that time‚óÜA dress worn by Kathy Bates in her roll as Annie Wilkes is on display at Planet Hollywood in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina‚óÜMisery was almost turned into a Broadway play with Julia Roberts¬†as Annie Wilkes. King vetoed the idea because Annie is (in his words) "a brawny woman who can sling a guy around, not a pixie."‚óÜ Rob Reiner makes a cameo¬†as the helicopter pilot‚óÜ J.T. Walsh makes a cameo¬†as the State Trooper (Sherman Douglas)‚óÜThe film was remade in India as a¬†(Malayalam &¬†Tamil) film¬†titled¬†Julie Ganapathi‚óÜAt the time, Misery was almost turned into a Broadway play with Julia Roberts¬†as Annie Wilkes. King vetoed the idea because Annie is (in his words) "a brawny woman who can sling a guy around, not a pixie."‚óÜ However, William Goldman¬†has since adapted the book for the theatre. His play version premiered in 2012 at the (Bucks County Playhouse)
