Flying under all of our radars, production is expected to begin next week on a remake of The Land that Time Forgot, based on the classic book by Edgar Rice Burroughs, later remade into a 1975 film, reports Moviehole.net. Actor C.Thomas Howell will be behind the camera directing from a script by Darren Dalton (Scanner Cop). The site reports that the flick stars Howell (The Hitcher, Gettysburg), Christopher Showerman (George of the Jungle 2, Commander and Chief), and Timothy Bottoms, who coincidentally was a star of the recent “Land of the Lost” TV series which aired from 1991-1992. The original takes place during World War I, where a German U-boat sinks a British ship and takes the survivors on board. After it takes a wrong turn, the submarine takes them to the unknown land of Caprona, where they find dinosaurs and neanderthals. Awesome trailer beyond the break.
“It’s action, danger and and adventure on an epic scale!”
