NEW YORK, May 4 (UPI) -- William Hurt and Donald Sutherland are among the stars lined up to read the works of Ernest Hemingway for New York-based Simon & Schuster Audio.

Sutherland will narrate the Nobel and Pulitzer Prize-winning "The Old Man and the Sea," while Hurt will read "The Sun Also Rises," the publisher announced in a news release Thursday.

Campbell Scott has been tapped to read "For Whom the Bell Tolls" and John Slattery will narrate "A Farewell to Arms."

Tony Award-winner James Naughton will read "A Moveable Feast," Bruce Greenwood has been tapped for "Islands in the Stream" and Will Patton will narrate "To Have and Have Not."

The cast is still pending for "Across the River and into the Trees," "The Garden of Eden," "Green Hills of Africa" and "Death in the Afternoon."

The first three audio books -- featuring Sutherland, Scott and Slattery -- will be in stores this month.
