After the death of his brother in Afghanistan, Jacob Singer is finally getting his life back together. He has a beautiful wife, a new born child and a successful career as surgeon in a VA hospital. When a stranger approaches him and tells him that his brother is actually alive and living in an underground shelter with other homeless vets, Jacob’s life starts to unravel. He begins hallucinating, believes he is being followed by violent attackers and becomes paranoid about the truth of what really happened to his brother. When he discovers that his brother is alive and addicted to an experimental drug, he uncovers a secret he never could have been prepared for.
The film, a re-imagination of the 1990 thriller, was directed by David M. Rosenthal (A Single Shot, How It Ends). The script was written by Jeff Buhler (Pet Sematary, The Prodigy) and Sarah Thorp.
Jacob’s Ladder was produced by Will Packer (Girls Trip), Mickey Liddell (Jackie, The Grey, Anthropoid), Michael Gaeta & Alison Rosenzweig (Fright Night, Transit), Peter Shilaimon (The Zookeeper, Jackie), and Jennifer Monroe (The Grey, The Collector).
