A miniseries based on Stephen King’s Bag of Bones was officially announced last week. Pierce Brosnan and Annabeth Gish were the first revealed cast members and Deadline is now reporting that Melissa George (30 Days of Night) has also joined the cast, playing the role of an "an attractive young widow" involved in a custody dispute with "the child's enormously wealthy grandfather".

A&E will premiere the project, which will be a two-night, four-hour miniseries directed by Mick Garris. There is no release date set at this time, but we do know that filming will begin next month in Nova Scotia. Here is a plot synopsis for those that have not read the book:

“Several years after his wife’s death, novelist Mike Noonan still suffers writer’s block. A dream inspires him to return to the couple’s summer retreat in western Maine, a lakeside house called Sara Laughs. Shortly after arriving, Noonan is caught in the middle of a custody battle involving the daughter of an attractive young widow and the child’s enormously wealthy grandfather. He also discovers that Sara Laughs is haunted and that his late wife, Joanna, still has something to tell him.”
