No U.S. television network is set to air the remake of this epic film and novel but the cast sure seems strong enough to get interest pretty quickly. Ethan Hawke and William Hurt have joined the mini series ‘Moby Dick’.
German production company Tele Munchen is putting $25 million bucks behind this production which is set to start filming in Canada this month and moving to Malta afterward.
Ethan Hawke is set to play Starbuck, the first officer of the sailing whaler the Pequod. While William Hurt will be cast in the role of Ahab, the ship’s captain.
