Wesley Snipes will star in a remake of crime-drama “Five Minutes to Live” with Chuck Russell directing.
Hannibal Pictures will begin selling international rights next week at the American Film Market.
The 1961 movie starred Johnny Cash and Vic Tayback as two thieves who conspire to rob a bank and hold the bank manager’s wife hostage.
Russell wrote the script with Raul Sanchez-Inglis. Producers are Joseph Nasser, Michael Mendelsohn and Richard Rionda Del Castro of Hannibal.
Snipes served a three-year prison sentence starting in 2010 in Pennsylvania for misdemeanor failure to file U.S. federal income tax returns. He appeared in “The Expendables 3” as Doc in August.
