Adrian Lyne's 1990 cult hit Jacob's Ladder is set for the remake treatment, says a story at The Hollywood Reporter. Jeff Buhler (The Midnight Meat Train) is providing the latest draft of the screenplay.

The original film starred Tim Robbins as a Vietnam veteran living in New York City named Jacob Singer. Haunted by his past, Singer begins a descent into madness that threatens to blend reality and delusion with the threat of a Dante-inspired damnation.

The new take on the property is said to reexamine the themes of the original against a contemporary backdrop. When a Stranger Calls screenwriter Jake Wade Wall is said to have worked on an earlier draft of the new script.

Michael Gaeta, Mickey Liddell, Jennifer Monroe and Alison Rosenzweig are set to produce. No director is currently attached, but check back for details as they become available.
