Is Lisey's Story based on a true story? 

While the story itself is fictionalised, the bestselling author has previously revealed that he had the idea after being involved in a near-fatal car accident that left him hospitalised for a long time, and returning home to find his wife Tabitha redecorating his studio - giving him an insight into what life would be like for her if he had died. 

Julianne Moore and Clive Owan star

In an interview, he said: "It was disturbing because all of the books were off the shelves and they were in cartons, and the rugs were rolled up and the furniture had been taken away to be upholstered and I thought, 'This is what it would look like if I died,' [...] Then I thought, 'This is what it will look like when I die... someone will have to clean this place out and inventory my papers and see what I've left behind,' and a light went on in my head and I thought, 'What if someone wanted to steal those papers when started bothering Tabitha about it, and what if this guy was crazy?'" 

Who is in the Lisey's Story cast? 

Julianne Moore will play Lisey, while Clive Owen is set to play her deceased husband Scott Landon. Joan Allen, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Dane DeHaan, Ron Cephas Jones and Sung Kang are also set to star.
