Michael Ealy Will Lead The Jacob’s Ladder Remake

21 March 2016 4:23 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A remake of Adrian Lyne’s Jacob’s Ladder has been brewing over in Hollywood for a few years now, and today, Variety reports that Ld Entertainment have found their lead in Michael Ealy.

Described as more of a reboot of the 1990 film than a straight remake, the project boasts a script from Alison Rosenzweig and Jeff Buhler, who rewrote Jake Wade Wall’s original draft, and has David Rosenthal behind the camera.

Plot details are scarce at this point, but Variety’s report mentions that it will be a “modern-day paranoid action thriller about two brothers.” That doesn’t give us a whole lot to go on, but apparently the producers are hoping to “contemporize the story with new situations and characters but still maintain a story that examines issues and poses existential questions.”
