Jesse Williams 2 200×300 – PG-13 or R? JACOB’S LADDER remake scores MPAA Rating
The director David M. Rosenthal’s remake of Adrian Lyne Jacob’s Ladder movie, starring Jesse Williams, has not released a trailer, a poster or even a single. But today we have confirmation that he is still on his way to theaters this February.
This confirmation comes to us through the MPAA that has just delivered to the new film an R grade for “language, some violence, sexuality and drug content.” Meh Not bad. It could have been PG-13.
Are you willing to give this remake one day in court? Be sure to give us a touch and tell us what you think in the comments section or on Facebook, Twitter and / or Instagram!
David M. Rosenthal directs the remake of a script written by Jeff Buhler (remake of Pet Sematary) and Sarah Thorpe. Williams’ co-stars include Joseph Sikora, Guy Burnet, Karla Souza and Michael Ealy. They produce Michael J. Gaeta, Mickey Liddell, Jennifer Monroe, Will Packer, Alison R. Rosenzweig and Pete Shilaimon. The remake hits theaters on February 1, 2019.
We are not even finished with November, but when you live horror like me, you are always attentive to what comes in the pike. Any genre film that is less than 90 days from the established release date is on my radar, you better believe it! That’s why I’m particularly curious about the remake of the Jacob’s Ladder remake; According to both Upcoming Horror Movies and IMDB, the film will hit theaters on February 1.
This would not be the first time that even these respected industry databases have crossed their cables. I mean, one of them (I will not say which one) assured me that Tony Todd’s Sky Sharks was going to the theaters last April (the movie has not been screened yet, nowhere else). Still, on the IMDB page of director David M. Rosenthal, he insists that Jacob’s Ladder has been completed. And yet, I have doubts.
