Preview, “Jacob’s Ladder” remade

Michael Ealy stars in this remake, which is coming out later this summer.

It’s a reinvention of the story that Bruce Joel Rubin told, with Tim Robbiins and Danny Aiello and others back in 1990.

I interviewed Rubin when the original film came out, and the writer of “Ghost” and “Jacob’s Ladder” had a serious obsession with The Tibetan Book of the Dead he was working out, to say nothing of that famous short story turned short film on TV’s “Twilight Zone,” “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge.”

I see a little of that here, a few repeated images, and a LOT of credited screenwriters probably NOT as familiar with “The Tibetan Book of the Dead.”
