Teaser trailer for Ridley & Tony Scott’s Coma remake

Remember “Coma”? Either the book by Robin Cook or the movie that snagged Tom Selleck his union membership? Chances are many of you haven’t had the pleasure of hearing “”.. but all that will surely change come Labor day.

A&E, home to some pantie-wetting pleasures like “The Killing” and “The Walking Dead”, have opened their wallets to a mini-series remake from prolific filmmaking brothers Tony ‘Top Gun’ Scott and Ridley ‘Alien’ Scott. The all-star cast of the thing read’s like a who’s who of a Paul Newman memorial – Richard Dreyfuss, Geena Davis, James Woods and Ellen Burstyn, among others feature.
I’ve posted the trailer for cable’s “Coma” below, along with the original VHS classic.

A healthy patient suddenly falls into a coma. It’s not an impossible event, but it is rare. So why does it keep happening at Peachtree Memorial?

Lauren Ambrose stars as Dr. Susan Wheeler in this thriller about a medical student who discovers that something sinister is going on in her hospital after routine procedures send more than a few seemingly healthy patients into comas on the operating table.

This modern retelling of the novel by Robin Cook and the film by Michael Crichton comes from executive producers Ridley and Tony Scott, Black Swan writer John J. McLaughlin, and Band of Brothers director/Emmy winner Mikail Salomon. The two-night event features a stellar cast including Richard Dreyfuss, Ellen Burstyn, James Woods, Geena Davis, and Steven Pasquale.

And here’s the original “Coma”, just to help the purists prep for their pissing-all-over-the-redo facebook comeback :
