Andromeda Strain reborn as USA miniseries

Posted by Shannon Bennett Categories: Drama, Mini Series, Cable,

Andromeda StrainI’m going to be honest, I’m not surprised that someone is re-doing Michael Crichton’s The Andromeda Strain.  After all, since there’s a new pod person movie on the loose, films made (and remade) in the 70’s are now fair game for re-adapting.  Andromeda is being packaged out in a neat television mini series for USA with a cast headed up by Benjamin Bratt, who will play the formidable Dr. Jeremy Stone.

This role will be a step away from Bratt’s usual, in that he will now be playing a doctor instead of a cop.  I can’t help but wonder though, since it was constant in Law and Order, Miss Congeniality, and the unfortunate Catwoman - will Bratt finally get a change of costume?
