Jan de Bont returns to directing with a remake of the 1961 Johnny Cash drama Five Minutes to Live
The film, to be written by TV movie and DTV scribe Raul Inglis, will follow the original film closely as it tells the story of "two men as they execute a terrifying bank robbery. One guy holds the bank manager's wife hostage and the other tells the manager she'll be killed in five minutes unless he transfers money to an account of their choosing."
FIVE MINUTES TO LIVE is being brought to life by producers Joseph and Jack Nasser, both of whom currently have the film FOR A GOOD TIME, CALL... premiering at Sundance this year. Casting is said to be starting immediately.
