Michael Ealy Joins “Jacob’s Ladder” Remake

Michael Ealy has joined the cast of the remake of Adrian Lyne’s 1990 supernatural thriller “Jacob’s Ladder” for LD Entertainment.

Tim Robbins starred in the original as a Vietnam veteran whose experiences prior to and during the war result in strange flashbacks and bizarre hallucinations that haunt him.

David M. Rosenthal (“The Perfect Guy”) directs the new take which has been penned by Jeff Buhler and Sarah Thorp. Jake Wade Wall sold the pitch for this new version which sounds like a distinct change in tone and is described as a “modern-day paranoid action thriller about two brothers”.

Mickey Liddell, Pete Shilaimon, Jennifer Monroe, Alison Rosenzweig and Michael Gaeta will produce with filming to begin mid-May.
