Remake of the Poseidon Adventure

Some of the casting have been anounced for this remake. They have big shoes to fill especially those of Shelley Winters...

LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com)- Don't they know what's going to happen to that darned boat? Four actors have signed on for a bout with disaster in Warner Bros. Pictures' remake of "The Poseidon Adventure."
Directed by Wolfgang Peterson, the new "Poseidon" will feature Kurt Russell, Emmy Rossum, Mike Vogel and Oscar winner Richard Dreyfuss. In addition, Andre Braugher ("Homicide: Life on the Street") is close to signing on, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Like the Ronald Neame-directed 1972 original, "The Poseidon Adventure" is an ensemble drama about the survivors on an ocean liner capsized by a tidal wave. They have to make their way through the insides of the ship to reach the hull and safety. The all-star original featured Oscar winners Gene Hackman, Ernest Borgnine, Red Buttons and Shelley Winters.

Russell will a former fireman traveling with his daughter, played by Rossum, and her boyfriend (Vogel). Dreyfuss plays another passenger who recently broke up with his life partner. If he comes on board, Braugher will captain the ship.

Akiva Goldsman ("Cinderella Man") and Mark Protosevich ("The Cell") adapted Paul Gallico's novel.

Russell ("Escape from New York") will next be seen in the summer comedy "Sky High." Rossum was a Golden Globe nominee for "The Phantom of the Opera," while Vogel is in theaters now in "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants." Dreyfuss ("Jaws") was last on the big screen in "Silver City."

Shooting on "The Poseidon Adventure" is set to begin on June 18.

No wonder the search didn't find anything since the title was misspelled. Oh well.
