Wesley Snipes is back in action and is set to star in a Chuck Russell-directed remake of the 1961 Johnny Cash-led crime-drama “Five Minutes to Live” for Hannibal Pictures.
The original starred Cash and Vic Tayback as two thieves who conspire to rob a bank and hold the bank manager’s wife hostage. Russell and Raul Sanchez-Inglis co-write the script for the remake.
Joseph Nasser, Michael Mendelsohn and Richard Rionda Del Castro will produce. International rights for the project will go on sale next week at the American Film Market.
