Logan’s James Mangold will helm a Disorder remake, based on the 2015 French release
With his second Marvel Comics adaptation Logan having surpassed $612 million at the worldwide box office, James Mangold has found his next directorial project. Deadline brings word that Mangold will take on an English-language Disorder remake, based on the 2015 French-Belgian film directed by Alice Winocour. Winocour also co-wrote the dramatic thriller alongside Jean-Stéphane Bron.
Starring Matthias Schoenaerts (Rust and Bone) and Diane Kruger (Inglourious Basterds), it was originally released in France under the title Maryland with the following official synopsis:
Vincent, a French Special Forces soldier just back from Afghanistan, is suffering from a post-traumatic stress disorder. He is hired to ensure the security of Jessie, the wife of a rich Lebanese businessman at their luxurious villa, “Maryland”. As he starts experiencing a strange fascination for the woman he has to protect, Vincent increasingly seems to fall into paranoia. Unless he is right, and the danger is very real indeed…
The Disorder remake, set up at Sony Pictures, boasts an adapted screenplay by Sicario and Hell or High Water scribe Taylor Sheridan. According to the original article, Sheridan’s script makes quite a few changes to the storyline and potentially sets up the central character for a film franchise.
Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tisch are set to produce the Disorder remake through Escape Artists. Tony Shaw will also serve as producer with David Beaubaire overseeing for Sony.
