Starting pre-production almost a month ago, the Bag Of Bones mini-series finally has a name attached to it besides for director Mick Garris. Although final negotiations are still underway, it looks like Pierce Brosnan is all but set to star as Mike Noonan in the Stephen King adaptation.
Principal photography was supposed to start on July 6 in Nova Scotia, but since no one else has signed on yet (that we know of), don’t be surprised if the date is pushed back a few days unless they really ramp things up.
Bag Of Bones tells the story of forty-year-old bestselling novelist Mike Noonan, who – four years after the passing of his wife – is unable to write and plagued by vivid nightmares set at the Maine summerhouse he calls Sara Laughs. Mike reluctantly returns to the lakeside getaway and finds his beloved Yankee town held in the grip of a vindictive millionaire, Max Devore, who is trying to take his three-year-old granddaughter away from her widowed young mother, Mattie. As Mike is drawn into Mattie’s struggle–and begins to fall in love with her–he is also drawn into the mystery of Sara Laughs, now the site of ghostly visitations and escalating terrors. What do the forces that have been unleashed here want of Mike Noonan?
