Julianne Moore returns to her thriller roots in Stephen King’s upcoming series, ‘Lisey’s Story’

Lisey's Story

For decades, we've watched Julianne Moore weave in and out of her various movie roles like the acting chameleon she is. From her unforgettable and gripping portrayal of Clarice Starling in Hannibal; to Charlotte in Tom Ford's sartorial extravaganza, A Single Man. Time has proven that there is very little she can't do. Now, after a short hiatus from the big screen, Moore is returning to her thriller roots; embracing the task of helming Stephen King's latest series, Lisey's Story.

Based on King's 2006 novel of the same name, Lisey's Story; this psychological rollercoaster has committed both a stellar cast and production team to bring this tale to the life. The eight-episode series, which will air on Apple TV+, has been written by King himself; with renowned producer J.J. Abrams (Lost, Star Wars) and director Pablo Larraín as his right-hand men.

Below, you'll find everything you need to know about the haunting series.
