Odd cast combo of the day alert: Kurt Russell, Adrien Brody and Sharon Stone have all signed on to star in Waco, which will cover one of the most infamous events in US law enforcement history.

Production Weekly has it that Rupert Wainwright – last seen directing **The Fog **remake – will handle the film, which will track the 1993 incident in Texas with the bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms laying siege to the compound holding David Koresh and his personal cult, the Branch Davidians.

After reports of child abuse and rape emerged from the isolated compound, federal agents took action, leading to a devastating fire within the structure that left 81 people dead and a wealth of controversies about how the authorities handled the situation.

According to The Playlist, investigative journalist Lee Hibberd wrote the script and the filmmakers will tap the experience of documentarian Michael McNulty, who made Waco: The Rules Of Engagement about the topic.
