Adrien Brody may play Harry Houdini for History
Did History just land another Oscar winner to topline its latest miniseries project?
According to EW.com, Adrien Brody will play magician Harry Houdini in a biopic to be produced by J.J. Abrams' dad Gerald.
The report has no details regarding writer, director or basis for the project which is tentatively titled "Houdini."
History drew record-breaking ratings for both "The Bible" and the Emmy-winning "Hatfields & McCoys," presumably boosting the network's status as a destination.
An Oscar winner for "The Pianist," Brody was most recently seen on the big screen in... Hmmm... Well, he was in "Midnight in Paris." And then there was "Predators."
