Anika Noni Rose Will Haunt Pierce Brosnan In Adaptation Of Stephen King’s “Bag Of Bones”

Anika Noni Rose Will Haunt Pierce Brosnan In Adaptation Of Stephen King's "Bag Of Bones"

Star of stage and screen Anika Noni Rose has been cast in cable TV channel A&E’s upcoming adaptation of Stephen King’s Bag of Bones, his award-winning 1998 novel.

Ms Rose will play a character named Sara Tidwell, a dead blues singer whose ghost haunts the house of a bestselling novelist who is fighting a bitter custody battle. That bestselling novelist will be played by Pierce Brosnan.

I’ve read a number of Stephen King’s works, but this is one novel that I haven’t, and thus not too familiar with; so can’t say much about it; every synopsis I read is lengthy and pretty much gives the entire story away, so I won’t post them here.

One write-up I came across described the Sara Tidwell ghost character – “a black woman who was gang-raped and forced to witness the murder of her young child” and now wants revenge.

Those who’ve read the novel can chime in.

The planned 4-hour mini-series will air on A&E toward the end of this year.

I’ll have to pick up a copy for myself and add to my to-read pile.
