Things just keep getting better for Kelly Rowland. According to reports, the “Motivation” hitmaker has been tapped to star in author Stephen King’s “Bag of Bones,” for a Sony Pictures Television, two-part, 4-hour mini-series along with actors Pierce Brosnan and Annabeth Gish.
Production for the mini-series will kick off August 2011 in Nova Scotia and will be directed by Mick Garris. The show will premiere later this year on A&E.
“Bag of Bones” is the story of grief and lost love’s enduring bonds, an innocent child caught in a terrible crossfire and a new love haunted by past secrets. Bestselling novelist Mike Noonan, played by Pierce Brosnan, is unable to stop grieving after the sudden death of his wife Jo. A dream inspires him to return to the couple’s lakeside retreat in western Maine where he becomes involved in a custody battle between the daughter of an attractive young widow and the child’s enormously wealthy grandfather, the mysterious ghostly visitations, the ever-escalating nightmares and the realization that his late wife still has something to tell him.
Over the last six months, Rowland has been enduring a huge career boost, attributing to her No. 1 single “Motivation,” and being a UK X-Factor judge. Her third studio album, Here I Am, arrives in stores Tuesday July 26.
