Frank Darabont wrote the screenplay on speculation, in an attempt to lift himself out of a rut of writing horror sequels, like The Fly II (1989) and A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors (1987).
Mr. Dufresne, describe the confrontation you had with your wife the night that she was murdered.
Andy Dufresne: It was very bitter. She said she was glad I knew, that she hated all the sneaking around. And she said that she wanted a divorce in Reno.
