HBO Films and BBC Two are joining forces to make TSUNAMI, an ensemble drama about the tidal wave that devastated the Andaman Coast in Thailand in December 2004. The film will star Tim Roth, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Sophie Okonedo, Toni Collette, Hugh Bonneville and Gina McKee. Filming has just started in Phuket and Khaolak, Thailand. Tsunami covers the disaster and its aftermath from the vantage point of survivors, media and relief workers. The movie will premiere at the end of the year (06).
