James Mangold and Taylor Sheridan are teaming up to remake a French-Belgian movie from 2015, Disorder. That’s all you really need to know. Two fucking rad dudes teaming up. Get excited for this, slime.


James Mangold (Logan) will direct a remake of a French-Belgian movie not enough people saw in 2015, Disorder. It’s a very good and very atmospheric and sparse thriller from director Alice Winocour. Last year, screenwriter Taylor Sheridan (Hell or High Water) was tapped to write the American remake for Sony. After the script crossed Mangold’s desk, he signed up immediately to direct the film, which sounds like it’ll take some significant departures from the original.

Deadline reports Sony is fast-tracking the remake, with Mangold now steering the ship. The original, which starred Matthias Schoenaerts and Diane Kruger, was about an ex-soldier with PTSD hired to protect a businessman’s wife and child. When the shady businessman is out of town, things get dangerous – but the events don’t unfold in the way you’d expect. Sheridan used the “original as a jumping off point,” according to Deadline. The Academy Award-nominated writer added a love story, altered the protagonist’s affliction, and set the story on the largest island in the Balearic Islands, Majorca. Winocour’s film took place in Maryland, on the French Riviera.
