Houdini (Adrien Brody) - Preview


Preview by Jack Foley

HOUDINI follows the epic tale of Harry Houdini as he emerges as America’s first bona fide world-renowned superstar.

From humble beginnings at circus sideshows to sold-out concert halls, Eastern European immigrant Erich Weiss rose to become a household name, Houdini, across the globe.

Academy Award® winner Adrien Brody (The Pianist) stars as The Great Harry Houdini as he finds fame, engages in espionage, battles spiritualists and encounters the greatest names of the era, from U.S. presidents to Arthur Conan Doyle and Rasputin.

An exhilarating ride through Harry’s psyche, Houdini delves deep behind the curtain into his life through his stunts, his visions and his mastery of illusion.

Joining Brody is Kristen Connolly (House of Cards, The Cabin the Woods) as Bess Houdini, the love of Harry’s life and right hand woman when it came to some of his most amazing feats, and Evan Jones (A Million Ways to Die in the West, The Book of Eli, Gangster Squad) as Jim Collins, Harry’s assistant and confidant.

The two part mini-series is written by Nicholas Meyer (Somersby) and directed by Uli Edel (Homicide: Life on the Street).

It is released on DVD on October 6, 2014.
