Maria Bello is featured on a new poster for Big Driver, the television movie that’s based off the Stephen King book of the same name.

Bello plays the famous author who finds herself in a real-life mystery after her car breaks down and she’s forced to hitchhike.

The poster shows Bella staring ahead with what appears to be blood on her cheek. “Murder is a two-way street,” the poster says.

She also has a gun in her hand and smoke from a burning building is seen behind her.

“In Big Driver, Tess Thorne (Bello), a famous and revered mystery and thriller writer, faces a long drive home following a book-signing engagement. But while driving on a lonely stretch of New England road, her tire blows out, leaving her stranded. Relieved when another driver stops and offers assistance, Tess quickly discovers her savior is actually her assailant, a serial killer who repeatedly assaults her,” the network’s description says.

“Left for dead in a drainage pipe to rot with the bodies of his other victims, Tess escapes and makes her way safely home. With her fragile mind beginning to unravel, she is determined to find her rapist and seek revenge, as payback is the only thing holding her together.”

The movie will air on October 18 at 8 p.m. EDT.
