Dreyfuss, Russell & Rossum Climb Aboard the "Poseidon"

by | June 6, 2005 | Comments

Richard Dreyfuss ("Jaws"), Kurt Russell ("Backdraft"), and Emmy Rossum ("The Phantom of the Opera") are the first high-profile cast members to climb on board director Wolfgang Petersen‘s rendition of "The Poseidon Adventure," says Variety.

Currently scheduled for a May 2006 release date, the new-fangled "Adventure" will have to withstand some strange competition: a separate adaptation of Paul Gallico‘s original novel will hit the NBC airwaves some time early next year. That version will star C. Thomas Howell, Rutger Hauer, Adam Baldwin, Bryan Brown, and Peter Weller.

As far as WB’s big-screen remake, Kurt Russell will play a former firefighter, and Ms. Rossum will play his daughter. Variety indicates that Mr. Dreyfuss, an actor who not long ago announced his retirement from acting, "will play a gay man who has just been dumped."
