A&E Network is set to begin production next month on a four-hour mini-series adaptation of Stephen King’s novel “Bag of Bones” which will air sometime in the last quarter of the year.
Pierce Brosnan and Anabeth Gish will star in the story of a novelist unable to stop grieving after the sudden death of his wife Jo. A dream inspires him to return to the couple’s lakeside retreat in western Maine.
He soon becomes involved in a custody battle between the daughter of an attractive young widow and the child’s enormously wealthy grandfather, the mysterious ghostly visitations, the ever-escalating nightmares and the realization that his late wife still has something to tell him.
“The Stand” and “The Shining” mini-series director Mick Garris is set to helm from a script by Matt Venne. Shooting will take place in Nova Scotia, Canada.
