Oscar winners Richard Dreyfuss, Ellen Burstyn and Geena Davis have landed in the cast of A&E’s upcoming reboot of ‘Coma,’ a modern-day retelling of the best-selling novel by Robin Cook and the film that starred Michael Douglas and Genevieve Bujold.

Also in the cast of the four-hour miniseries is Oscar nominee James Woods, Lauren Ambrose (‘Six Feet Under’), Steven Pasquale (‘Rescue Me’), Joe Morton (‘The Good Wife’), James Rebhorn (‘Law & Order’) and Joseph Mazello (‘The Pacific’). The two-night event will be produced by Ridley and Tony Scott and directed by Mikail Salomon (‘Band of Brothers’).

‘Coma’ revolves around a doctor who discovers that something sinister is happening at her hospital after routine procedures send more than a few seemingly healthy patients into comas on the operating table.
