Sony Pictures is fast-tracking a remake of Alice Winocour’s 2015 French film “Disorder” with two big names attached – James Mangold (“Logan”) as director and Taylor Sheridan (“Sicario,” “Hell or High Water”) as writer.
Matthias Schoenaerts starred in the original as an ex-soldier with PTSD hired to protect the wife ( and child of a wealthy Lebanese businessman while he’s out of town. Despite the apparent tranquillity in Maryland, the soldier perceives an external threat. Diane Kruger also starred.
Sheridan is using the original as a jumping off point. From there he’s changed the soldier’s affliction, added a romance, set the whole thing in Majorca and created a potential franchise character.
Sheridan will do a pass with Mangold’s input with production potentially getting underway before the year is out. Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tisch are producing.
