Yes, we heard rumours the man himself would make an appearance on HAVEN. Stephen King wrote “The Colorado Kid” on which the series was based, so it wouldn’t be too far of a stretch – after all he’s appeared in 18 other projects based on his works. To be clear we’re located in the same town where the production was headquartered, so fair to say there’s lots of fodder 'round these parts. We never did run with the rumour and he never did show.
BAG OF BONES has been very secretive about everything and still have yet to provide the production with a media contact. Even the set remains on lockdown with scripts being closed to only those necessary…very cloak and dagger.
BUT considering the source of this latest news - the same source who gave us the scoop on the production shooting in the first place and of Pierce Brosnan as it's star…well - we’ve attached considerably more weight.
Now, our source tells us that this talk of Stephen King’s cameo came from one of the 'higher ups' on the production – with the word being King would be playing a clergyman…hmmm. A role he favours for sure! Remember Pet Cemetery!
You can be sure we’ll let you know if we hear anything more on that front.
One of our local young actresses Fiona Forsythe has also been cast and her mom tells us that Fiona is thrilled to have made friends with the Disney star.
There have been many Pierce Brosnan (Mike Noonan) sightings (and swoonings) here along the South Shore – we've been told he even played a round of golf at the club here in Chester, NS. Happy to know even the star takes a little time to take it all in! SABS
BAG OF BONES continues to shoot here in Nova Scotia with a wrap set for Sept. 28/11 and a broadcast date of the 2 part mini-series on A&E scheduled for the fourth quarter of this year.
