The critical and commercial success of Logan might make it a tough act to follow, but that hasn’t stopped director James Mangold from immediately diving right into another new project. A few months ago he signed on to direct a corrupt cop movie called The Force, based on a novel by Don Winslow (The Cartel). This week, however, it appears that he will be setting that aside to jump on board a remake of the 2015 French thriller Disorder, which is being penned by one of the most in-demand screenwriters currently working in Hollywood. The plot synopsis for the original film is as follows:
“Vincent, a French Special Forces soldier just back from Afghanistan, is suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. He is hired to ensure the security of Jessie, the wife of a rich Lebanese businessman at their luxurious villa ‘Maryland’. As he starts experiencing a strange fascination for the woman he has to protect, Vincent increasingly seems to fall into paranoia. Unless he is right, and the danger is very real indeed.”
Taylor Sheridan (Sicario, Hell or High Water) is writing the remake but reportedly made it his own by changing some things including the setting, the soldier’s affliction and by creating a “potential franchise character.” The project is being fast-tracked and they hope to have it in production before the end of the year. The original film starred Matthias Schoenaerts and Diane Kruger and was directed by Alice Winocour, who co-wrote the Oscar-nominated film Mustang. Are you looking forward to the Disorder remake?
