My interview with Mick Garris

Posted: December 13, 2011, 09:28

Brosnan talks Bag of Bones

Posted: December 9, 2011, 11:21
Talk Stephen King has a recap of Pierce Brosnan's visit to The Ellen DeGeneres Show:

Pierce Brosnan, who plays Mike Noonan in Bag of Bones, was Ellen's first guest on Thrusday. They discuss Brosnan's family; wife, kids and house. My favorite part was when his phone rang on live TV.

The clip they showed from Bag Of Bones was great! Brosnan takes a moment to explain the movie theme, saying, "There's something for everyone." Ellen adds, "It's not a feel good movie." !

Asked if he likes scary movies, Brosnan said he does, and then said, "I love Stephen King. He is a dude! He such an amazing story teller."

King in Bag of Bones?

Posted: August 25, 2011, 09:00
Dread Central reports that two young actresses have joined the cast of A&E's four-hour adaptation of the Stephen King novel Bag of Bones from director Mick Garris: Caitlin Carmichael, who has credits in both "True Blood" and "Dexter", is playing Kyra Devore while local Canadian thespian Fiona Forsythe has signed on for an as yet unnamed character.

The real news though is talks about a Stephen King cameo in the project. This comes from one of the "higher ups" on the production – with the word being King would be playing a clergyman.

Bag of Bones continues to shoot in Nova Scotia with a wrap set for September 28th.

Brosnan in Halifax

Posted: July 31, 2011, 23:16
Pierce Brosnan has been spotted in Halifax where he is to shoot Bag of Bones. This was reported on The Coast:

Former James Bond and Irish-born leading man Pierce Brosnan has been seen in town, most notably at Steve-O-Reno's on Brunswick Street. He's here working on a mini-series called Bag of Bones, adapted from a Stephen King story. Though his licence to kill has been reassigned, Brosnan keeps making good choices with his career, recently appearing as a Tony Blair-esque politician in last year's Roman Polanski picture The Ghost Writer. If you run into him, mentioning his work in that picture might be a good ice-breaker.
