Bruce Willis is hitting the Broadway stage for the first time. He'll make his debut in an adaptation of Misery by Stephen King; the play was written by William Goldman, who also wrote the screenplay for the 1990 movie version. Willis will play novelist Paul Sheldon, who was portrayed by James Caan in the movie. Opposite him will be Elizabeth Marvel as Annie Wilkes, the obsessive fan who imprisons Sheldon and was played by Kathy Bates in the film, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The play will debut in the fall, but specific dates and the theater have yet to be announced. (More Bruce Willis stories.)
