William Hurt has agreed to play Captain Ahab in the German miniseries retelling of Herman Melville’s classic 1851 novel "Moby Dick," according to The Hollywood Reporter. Ethan Hawke will co-star as the ship’s first mate, Starbuck.

Robert Halmi’s RHI Entertainment has taken a stake in the miniseries, which is being produced by Herbert Kloiber’s Tele Munchen. Also on board are Germany’s RTL and Austria’s ORF. The miniseries, which is being called the most expensive project in Tele Munchen’s 40-year history, is budgeted at $25 million.
