Hurricane Katrina : The Movie?

Starring Oscar Winner Adrien Brody


The first Hurricane Katrina movie is on the way, with Adrien Brody (“The Pianist”) tipped to star.

Director Wong Kar-Wai (“2046”) recently scouted the devastated New Orleans district, savaged by the awful hurricane last year, looking for suitable locations to plonk his tripod. The films producers have decided against shooting it in the area though, instead eyeing a New York shoot, because “the damage in New Orleans was still too severe”.

Brody is yet to sign onto the project, first wanting to see the script for the $50 million dollar movie, says Monkey Peaches.
