Katrina: American Crime Story skifter kildemateriale og Annette Bening, Matthew Broderick og Dennis Quaid vil ikke længere være tilknyttet serien.
The upcoming third installment of American Crime Story is going through some major changes. American Crime Story: Katrina will now use the book “Five Days at Memorial: Life and Death in a Storm-Ravaged Hospital” by Sheri Fink, according to Variety. The show was originally going to be based on the book “The Great Deluge” by Douglas Brinkley. Scott Rudin, who had previously acquired the rights to “Five Days at Memorial,” will join as an executive producer.
Here is the info on the book from Amazon: “…reporter Sheri Fink reconstructs 5 days at Memorial Medical Center and draws the reader into the lives of those who struggled mightily to survive and maintain life amid chaos. After Katrina struck and the floodwaters rose, the power failed, and the heat climbed, exhausted caregivers chose to designate certain patients last for rescue. Months later, several of those caregivers faced criminal allegations that they deliberately injected numerous patients with drugs to hasten their deaths.”
In addition to the source material change for American Crime Story: Katrina, cast members Annette Bening, Matthew Broderick and Dennis Quaid will no longer appear in the show. Sarah Paulson will still appear as Dr. Anna Pou, who was charged, along with two ICU nurses, with second-degree murder for the deaths of patients.
