Those who have been waiting and wondering about Ryan Murphy’s upcoming series entitled, “Katrina: American Crime Story,” apparently, you’ll have to wait one more season to lay eyes on its makings. The concept of the story has been completely retooled since it was originally announced to be the second season of the popular series and has since been bumped in favor of its Gianni Versace story counterpart.

Now it appears to be back on track, however the casting remains to be fully determined. Originally set to play President George W. Bush, fellow Texan Dennis Quaid has been earmarked for a leading role. Born and raised in Houston, Texas, Quaid seemed to be a logical understudy for the 43rd President of the United States, who was in office at the time the catastrophic 2005 hurricane made landfall. However, according to recent reports, the script has since changed and will be focusing on actress Sarah Paulson in the role of Dr. Anna Pou, based on the non-fiction book entitled “Five Days at Memorial,” by journalist Sheri Fink.

Paulson’s other castmates, however, have yet to be restructured for this new story, including Quaid, actors Cuba Gooding Jr. and Courtney B. Vance, as well as Annette Bening and Matthew Broderick. Waiting to see what their re-imagined roles may be in the series, The Hollywood Reporter identified that producers are presently working on determining new roles for these integral actors. Bening was originally cast to play Louisiana governor Kathleen Blanco, and Broderick was going to fill the role of Michael D. Brown, former F.E.M.A. director. Here’s hoping that the revised “Katrina: American Crime Story” adopts a smoother path going forward, and castmates won’t be waiting too long for their roles. Their anxious public awaits!
