Shooting for the remake of Jacob’s Ladder begins next month due to the cooperation between “The Perfect Guy” star Michael Ealy and many others. Ealy is executive producer of the remake and will work alongside Will Packer, producer of award winning film Straight Outta Compton and the upcoming movie Almost Christmas. “Grey’s Anatomy” star Jesse Williams and actress Nicole Beharie have recently joined the cast but no details about their specific roles have been released. What has been released about the film is that it will be more of a reboot than a remake, according to Variety, turning the classic film into a modern-day thriller focusing on two brothers.
The film originally starred Tim Robbins (Shawshank Redemption, War of the Worlds) and the late Elizabeth Pena (Rush Hour, The Incredibles). Other familiar names in this 26-year-old thriller included Ving Rhames (Babyboy, Mission: Impossible- Rogue Nation), Eriq La Salle (Coming to America, ER) and S. Epatha Merkerson (Peeples, Law & Order). If your memory is failing you (or you were barely out the womb when the film came out), take a look at the original trailer.
