Michael Bay is in talks to direct a remake of 2005’s “Ambulance”.
The Laurits Munch-Peterson directed film followed a returned veteran from Afghanistan who is drawn by his brother into a bank robbery. When the robbery goes horribly wrong, the brothers take hostages and hijack an ambulance. As the situation escalates, old wounds reopen in the relationship between the brothers as they fight to survive what seems like an impossible situation. The original film is mainly set in one location in real time with minimal characters.
Per Discussing Film, who have the scoop on Bay’s anointment, Bay steps in for Navot Papushado and Aharon Keshales, who were originally set to direct.
While Chris Fedak wrote a draft of the film, a new writer is being brought in to pen the Bay incarnation.
