Jacob's Ladder David Rosenthal Michael Ealy Banner

It's been over two years since we've heard anything about the project, but there's finally been some movement on the planned JACOB'S LADDER remake. Deadline is reporting Almost Human and ABOUT LAST NIGHT actor Michael Ealy has joined LD Entertainment's updated take on 1990 film.

Ealy's THE PERFECT GUY director David Rosenthal has been tapped to helm the re-imagining of the Tim Robbins-led supernatural thriller, which is being described as a "modern-day paranoid action thriller about two brothers." It was previously reported that the producers were "looking to make something more akin to an homage and not mimic the original. The plan is to contemporize the story with new situations and characters but still maintain a story that examines issues and poses existential questions."

Jeff Buhler (THE MIDNIGHT MEAT TRAIN) and Sarah Thorp (THE BOUNTY HUNTER, TWISTED) penned the latest draft of the script, and filming for the remake is set to begin this May.
