Adrien Brody to Be Houdini on History's Miniseries


Adrien Brody


The 'Pianist' actor is attached to star on the project based on the life of master illusionist Harry Houdini.

Adrien Brody will show some magic tricks on his next project. The Academy Award winner of Best Actor in 2002 will reportedly take the lead role of Harry Houdini on a potential miniseries which is being developed by History channel.

As first reported by Entertainment Weekly before The Hollywood Reporter confirms the news, Gerald W. Abrams is on board as producer for the project, which has "Houdini" as its working title. There's no word on director and other cast members for the show that "traces the arc of the turn-of-the-20th-century master magician's life from desperate poverty to worldwide fame."

Should it come to fruition, the project about the escape artist, who soared to fame in the late 1990s, will follow History's recent successful miniseries, "The Bible" and "Hatfields & McCoys".

Brody, meanwhile, hasn't appeared on scripted TV show since he appeared in 1996's TV movie "Bullet Hearts". He will next grace the big screen in limited release "InAPPropriate Comedy" and has landed a role in star-studded romantic movie "Third Person".
