WHM Summer Rerun - The Haunting

Original Air Date: October 25th, 2011

The gang continues their summer break and reruns a really old Spooktacular episode on The Haunting! What’s with Owen Wilson’s Gap sweaters? Was this really the best way for Liam Neeson to discover a cure for fear? And isn’t Catherine Zeta-Jones so hip trying to kiss a girl? PLUS: Baby ghosts!

The Haunting stars Catherine Zeta-Jones, Lili Taylor, Liam Neeson, Owen Wilson, Bruce Dern, Virginia Madsen, and Todd Field; directed by Jan de Bont.

Showtime has officially announced they’ve picked up the Daniel Craig-led Purity, with Todd Field directing, co-writing, and producing all 20 episodes. Based on the book by Jonathan Franzen (who will also write alongside David Hare), production begins in 2017. See the synopsis below.

PURITY is a morally complex story of youthful idealism, extreme loyalty and cold-blooded murder. Jonathan Franzen’s intricately plotted novel is populated by characters both hungry for the truth and desperate to hide it. From STASI offspring to Oakland anarchists, Franzen tracks his characters’ landscapes as varied as East Berlin, the Bolivian jungle, East Harlem walk-ups, and the California Redwoods. PURITY is at once supremely ambitious in scope and intensely intimate in its treatment of character - a decades-spanning tragicomedy that builds to a contemporary climax.
