We aren’t hallucinating, Jacob’s Ladder is being remade.
Now, Michael Ealy will climb Jacob’s Ladder along with director David M. Rosenthal, who helmed the star in The Perfect Guy, Deadline reports.
The film is LD Entertainment’s re-imagining of the 1990 supernatural thriller that’s been scripted by Jeff Buhler and Sarah Thorp. This version is a modern day paranoid action thriller about two brothers.
Mickey Liddell, Pete Shilaimon and Jennifer Monroe at LD Entertainment will produce alongside Alison Rosenzweig and Michael Gaeta of Gaeta/Rosenzweig Films (Fright Night) Will Packer, who teamed with Ealy on Think Like A Man, will produce via his Will Packer Productions banner and WPPs’ James F. Lopez will be executive producer.
The project was originally sold as a pitch by Jake Wade Wall (The Hitcher, When a Stranger Calls).
Principal photography is set to begin in mid May.
