JACOB'S LADDER poster

Bruce Joel Rubin is a enigma as a screenwriter; on one hand he wrote "stuff" like GHOST, STUART LITTLE 2 and the current release THE TIME TRAVELER'S WIFE, but then again he's responsible for the brilliant mind-f*ck JACOB'S LADDER, one of the 90s most underrated gems. Hopefully, that's the one he'll be channeling for his next gig. Nothing against Stuart; Hugh Laurie was quirky as his dad.

Rubin got the nod from Dreamworks to adapt the 2002 Japanese hit YOMIGAERI into a U.S. remake called RAINBOW BRIDGE, taking over from William Nicholson. No director is yet attached, but I'd love to see what JACOB director Adrian Lyne would do with it.

The original film and its base novel by Shinji Kajio follow a "government official sent to a rural town after a child who has been missing for 60 years returns, having not aged."

Extra Tidbit: I saw JACOB'S LADDER back then based only on that quite efficient poster. As much as I loved it, I've only ever watched it once - it just creeped the hell out of me.

It's an extremely interesting concept.

but hopefully he'll stay away from such inspirations that brought Stuart Little 2 to the world.
