China Doll is the story of billionaire Mickey Ross (Pacino) who is about to get married to a beautiful, young woman and go into semiretirement. Just before Mickey is about to dash off to his new life his assistant, played by Fran Kranz, fields a phone call that makes him pause and turn his life towards a new direction.

Misery is a frightening tale about novelist Paul Sheldon and an unfortunate car accident he’s involved in on a snowy New England road. At first all seems fine, as Annie Wilkes, Sheldon’s biggest fan, rescues him from the wreck. But Annie also rescues his latest manuscript from the car.
The new novel focuses on a character named Misery, who Sheldon has serialized in a string of romantic novels. When Annie realizes that the character she loves so much is about to be killed off, she holds the novelist hostage, wanting him to save the lead character from her demise.
Willis (Sheldon), who is known for his work in films including the Die Hard series, will be joined by Elizabeth Marvel (Annie). Marvel has been seen in numerous Broadway shows including Picnic, Seascape, and Top Girls. Will Frears, whose New York credits include Still Life, Rainbow Kiss, and Year Zero, will direct.
