‘Rescuers’ adds duo

Rapaport, Tunney cast in Streisand prod'n

Michael Rapaport and Robin Tunney (“The Craft”) have been cast in the leads in the first installment of the third film of Showtime’s forthcoming trilogy of Holocaust dramas “Rescuers: Stories of Courage.”

The three films, from executive producers Barbra Streisand and Cis Corman and based on the book “Rescuers: Portraits of Moral Courage in the Holocaust” by Malka Drucker and Gay Block, comprise a pair of fact-based stories involving non-Jews who risked their lives to rescue Holocaust victims.

First of the movies is titled “Rescuers: Stories of Courage — Two Women” and includes the stories “Woman on a Bicycle” starring Sela Ward and “Mamusha” featuring Elizabeth Perkins. It is slated to premiere on Showtime in November.

Second film, under the heading “Rescuers: Stories of Courage — Two Couples,” includes the vignettes “Aahrt and Johjte Vos” starring Dana Delany and Martin Donovan and “Marie Taquet” with Linda Hamilton and Alfred Molina.

The Rapaport-Tunney installment that opens the third film recently began production but has yet to earn a full title. Three movies are made in association with Paramount Network Television.
