Jacob's LadderWell, it appears that we will once again be climbing Jacob’s Ladder, as the 1990 flick appears to be the next film receiving the remake treatment, and we have the early details.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Mickey Liddell’s LD Entertainment is financing a remake of the 1990 movie starring Tim Robbins that will be produced by Michael Gaeta and Alison Rosenzweig.

The remake is set to be penned by Jeff Buhler (The Midnight Meat Train) who is building the draft which was wrote by Jake Wade Wall (When a Stranger Calls ’06).

In the original film, a Vietnam War vet who suffers increasingly bizarre hallucinations and attempts to discover the truth behind them. However, the remake is said to be somewhat of a homage to the original film while contemporize the story with new situations and characters.

At this time there is no word on a directing, although the producers are said to be reaching out.

So there you have it. I’m sure we will learn more soon, but for now, are you guys down with a remake or have you simply had it?

        The main problem I foresee is the ending. There will be no surprise for anyone who has seen the original and I, for one, enjoyed it most because the ending blew my mind.
