James Mangold directing The Wolverine

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.

And then there’s director Alice Winocour behind the camera, who co-wrote last year’s critically acclaimed drama Mustang.

Disorder premiered last year at the Cannes Film Festival and Alice Winocour‘s (co-writer of Mustang) drama currently has a 100% on Rottentomatoes.

After the jump, watch the Disorder trailer.
