Jacob's Ladder remake delayed

I don't know if you're aware or not, but there is a remake of JACOB'S LADDER starring Jesse Williams (CABIN IN THE WOODS) heading our way soon. We haven't seen so much as a poster or a teaser for the film, but we did recently report that the movie has scored an R-rating via the MPPA for language, some violence, sexuality, and drug content. And if the film has gone so far as to snag a rating, I know what you're thinking:

When is the film coming out then!?

Well, it was evidently all set to roll into your local multiplex this February, but today we have word via our buddies over at B-D that the film has been delayed to an unspecified date. Ho-hum. Truthfully, I couldn't care less when the film comes out as I don't think JACOB'S LADDER needed a remake (and I'm usually pro-remake). But all the same, I'll let you know when we hear more.

Again, not much is known about this upcoming remake at the time, so here's the synopsis of the original film:

After returning home from the Vietnam War, veteran Jacob Singer (Tim Robbins) struggles to maintain his sanity. Plagued by hallucinations and flashbacks, Singer rapidly falls apart as the world and people around him morph and twist into disturbing images. His girlfriend, Jezzie (Elizabeth Peña), and ex-wife, Sarah (Patricia Kalember), try to help, but to little avail. Even Singer's chiropractor friend, Louis (Danny Aiello), fails to reach him as he descends into madness.

The original film was directed by Adrian Lyne (FATAL ATTRACTION) from a screenplay written by Bruce Joel Rubin (GHOST) and this new film hails to us from director David M. Rosenthal (THE PERFECT GUY) and screenwriters Jeff Buhler (MIDNIGHT MEAT TRAIN, PET SEMATARY remake) and Sarah Thorp. The horror remake stars Michael Ealy, Jesse Williams (CABIN IN THE WOODS), Nicole Beharie, Karla Souza, and Guy Burnet.

The movie will be released... eventually.
