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.
