ARE YOU READY FOR SOME MOVIES? Well hold on to your seats for this exciting remake arriving soon. The 1990 psychological thriller Jacob’s Ladder is getting a fresh reboot that takes the original horror story in a new, sadistic direction.
Directed by David M. Rosenthal, the film stars Michael Ealy taking on the lead role as Jacob Singer. However, the plot veers from the original script by introducing Jesse Williams playing the character of his brother Issac. While the “war survivor” plot point stays in tact, this version puts both brothers as serving in Afghanistan together and the crazy circumstances that occur when Issac returns home after over a year of everyone believing he died on the battlefield. The film also stars Nicole Beharie as Sam, the wife of Ealy’s character, in addition to Karla Souza (How to Get Away With Murder) and Joseph Sikora (Power).
Jacob’s Ladder hits theaters on August 23. Watch the trailer below.
