Pierce BrosnanStephen King's 'Bag of Bones' is getting the TV treatment thanks to A&E. Pierce Brosnan will headline the miniseries.

Brosnan will play novelist Mike Noonan, a man torn up with grief over the sudden death of his wife, Jo. Inspired by a dream, the character goes to the couple's lakeside property in Maine and becomes involved in a custody battle.

Joining Brosnan is 'X-Files' veteran Annabeth Gish, who will play Jo.

Mick Garris will direct the script, adapted for the small screen by Matt Venne.

The four-hour event will air over two nights, and is set to premiere sometime in the fourth quarter of 2011.

Ohhhh! I know who you mean, I love that actor. I think his name is David Sheftell. I've seen him on a couple of things but not a lot. But I think he's reeeeeeeeeeeallly HOTT! So I'm definitely looking forward to watching Bag of Bones.

I love the actor who plays young Max he soooo cute! I've seen him before on a couple of soaps he usually plays the good guy so it will be interesting to see him be the bad guy. Bag of Bones was one of my favorite books and I really like Pierce Brosnan even though he's getting on a bit, I'll definitely watch the TV version, I heard it's coming out in December.

Insomnia was suppose to be a movie too, back in 2007. What ever happened to that idea. Brosnan was also suppose to star in that movie. Will this just be another idea.

Bag of Bones is my second favorite book by Stephen King. (First being Insomnia) I have wanted to see a movie version of this story since the first time I read it. The book made me cry and made me angry. Angry at the author for taking to storyline the direction he did. It is one of his fineset pieces of work. Yeah A&E. Yeah Brosnan. Yeah Anabeth,

Manions of America, first appearance here...drop-dead gorgeous. You can get the DVDs. Very suave in Remington Steele. Mr. Brosnan is aging gracefully; watch Mamma Mia. He can't sing but who cares?
