Deadline is reporting that former “Sleepy Hollow” star Necole Beharie has signed on to star in Will Packer‘s reboot of the 1990’s horror film “Jacob’s Ladder.” The 31-year-old actress joins “Grey’s Anatomy” actor Jessie Williams and “The Perfect Stranger” star Michael Ealy.
In the film, a haunted Vietnam war veteran ‘Jacob’ is mourning his dead child and attempts to discover his past while suffering from a severe case of dissociation. To do so, he must decipher reality and life from his own dreams, delusion, and perception of death. The original film starred Tim Robbins in the lead along with the late Elizabeth Pena, Danny Aiello, Jason Alexander, Ving Rhames, Eriq La Selle and S. Epatha Merkerson.
According to S&A, Packer may go a different route with this story and focus on two brothers. The reboot is also being executive produced by Ealy as well.
RC will keep you posted as this continues to develop.
