‘Timecop’ Reboot Finds Itself Some Writers

Mark and Brian Gunn, who wrote the screenplay for Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, have been tapped to write the script for Timecop, which is a remake of the 1994 Jean-Claude Van Damme time travel action movie.

Marc Shmuger will produce the film under his Universal-based Global Produce, his shingle which was involved in making We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks and The Spectacular Now.

Mike Richardson of Dark Horse, the company which published the comic the movie is based on, will serve as an executive producer.

Whereas the first movie had the sci-fi elements very much in the foreground, the new version’s take sees Timecop being a more gritty and grounded police story with the sci-fi in the background, though will still have the main character on a personal journey.

Tonally it could end up sharing a similar sensibility to LooperRian Johnson’s time travel movie, but would be bigger in scope and ambition.
