Willis, who turns 60 on March 19, will play the housebound writer Paul Sheldon, who becomes a prisoner of crazed fan Annie Wilkes (Marvel), a role for which Kathy Bates won an Oscar in the 1990 film version. (James Caan played Sheldon in the movie.)

The play will have a limited run in the fall at a theater to be announced, the Hollywood Reporter said.
