Iconic Posters Recreated with Adrien Brody For History's 'Houdini'

One of the Vintage Posters Featuring Adrien Brody
Modern magic has placed Oscar-winner, Adrien Brody in a few of Harry Houdini’s iconic posters that were a key to the legendary magician's fame and success. These four featured vintage posters helped to advertise his different performances and sensational stunts. Why is Brody featured in these posters? He'll be starring in History’s upcoming two-night scripted miniseries, "Houdini." It will be premiering September 1 at 9 p.m. and conclude on September 2. "The event miniseries follows the epic tales of Harry Houdini as he emerges as America’s first bonafide world-renowned superstar."

Here's more info on "Houdini" from the press release and then check out the remaining three posters after the jump.

From humble beginnings at circus sideshows to sold-out concert halls, Eastern European immigrant Ehrich Weiss rose to become a household name across the globe – Houdini. 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. A thrilling ride throughout 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 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.
