Here’s the first teaser for AMC’s two-part miniseries adaptation of Stephen King’s Bag of Bones.

The four-hour mini stars Pierce Brosnan as haunted writer Mike Noonan, and also features Melissa George, Jason Priestley, Annabeth Gish, and Anika Noni Rose.

The creepy teaser doesn’t tell you much about the movie, but you can check out a bit of footage (plus some cast interviews) in a featurette after the jump.

Yep, looks like a Stephen King movie…

I’m not sold. EVERY King TV mini series starts of great (mysterious, intriguing and usually always creepy), but fails to deliver the goods in the end. And Pierce Brosnan repeatedly saying “Bag of Bones” isn’t going to convince me otherwise.

Stephen King’s Bag of Bones airs this December.

If you need some background, here’s some bathroom reading material.

…the novel is a classic ghost story. It opens quietly as narrator Mike Noonan, 40, bestselling author of romantic suspense potboilers, describes the death of his wife four years back and his consequent grief and writer’s block. Mike has kept the block hidden from the publishing world by annually pulling one of his own, unpublished manuscripts from a safe-deposit box. Now that he’s out of old novels to submit, he resolves to work through his troubles at Sara Laughs, his country house in backwoods Maine. Arriving there, Mike nearly drives over a three-year-old girl. She is Kyra, granddaughter, by way of beautiful young widow Mattie, of mad computer mogul Max Devore, who is hellbent on snatching the girl from her mother. Taking up Kyra’s cause, falling in love with Mattie, Mike gears up for a custody battle. Invigorated, he breaks through his writer’s block. But great danger, psychological and physical, awaits, from Max Devore, but especially from the spirits, mostly malevolent, that haunt Sara Laughs due to hideous crimes committed by Devore’s ancestor a century earlier. Violence, natural and supernatural, ensues as past and present mix, culminating in a torrent of climaxes that bind and illuminate the novel’s many mysteries.
