The original thriller, directed by Adrian Lyne, starred Tim Robbins as a Vietnam veteran who suffers from bizarre hallucinations while trying to uncover clues about his checkered past. The new film is said to be more of a contemporary homage than a remake, introducing new characters and situations while tackling the same existential themes as the original.
Jeff Buhler (Midnight Meat Train) is writing the script, based on a first draft by Jake Wade Wall (When a Stranger Calls). LD Entertainment's Mickey Liddell and Jennifer Monroe are producing with Michael J. Gaeta and Alison R. Rosenzweig. No production schedule was given.
