Bag of Bones…Coming to Life

Posted: July 26, 2011

It’s been a while - so we called the Bag of Bones production office in Halifax, NS today – just to make sure everything is still “a go” and… is!

Pierce Brosnan to star in Stephen King's BAG of BONES on TVWe were the first to break news of Pierce Brosnan taking on the lead role of Mike Noonan – and now that it’s been made official by Sony Pictures Television – there are a few more details rolling out from the super-secretive and much delayed production.

Our call today confirmed Wednesday, August 3/11 as the scheduled start for shooting (our sources say the push back from the originally slated start of July 6/11 was indeed due to Brosnan’s schedule)

We also know the small screen adaptation of Stephen King’s best seller will broadcast in two – 2 hour parts airing on A&E in the fourth quarter of this year.

Melissa George & Annabeth GishAustralian actress Melissa George (Grey’s Anatomy) will play Mattie and Annabeth Gish (The West Wing) will take on the role of Noonan’s dead wife Jo

Former Destiny’s Child member turned TV star, singer Kelly Rowland is also Kelly Rowlandexpected to join the cast of the Mick Garris directed mini-series.

It’s been a long time coming, but it would appear as though we’re just a little over a week away from the all the 'action' for Bag of Bones here in Nova Scotia (fingers crossed) SABS


Plot Line courtesy

Novel BAG of BONES"Bag of Bones" centers on bestselling novelist Mike Noonan (Brosnan), who is unable to stop grieving after the sudden death of his wife Jo (Gish). 

A dream inspires him to return to the couple's lakeside retreat in western Maine where he 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.

  2. I love Annabeth Gish and thanks for reminding us that she was in Beautiful Girls. Though I'll never forget she was in Mystic Pizza, being only 17 years old, an 80's film... I miss those movies so much! Just like Pretty in Pink, The Breakfast Club, Some Kind of Wonderful... Ah, to be young again 😀

    And she was also in the X-Files! My favorite show ever. She was in season 9.
