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."
