‘Dragon Tattoo’ Writer Takes Trip to ‘Time Crimes’

It has been a long time since we talked about Time Crimes (now split into two words), an English-language remake of Nacho Vigalondo’s 2007 time travel thriller set up by United Artists during its festival run. Deadline is reporting that the pic has been moved to DreamWorks with Steve Zaillian onboard to produce and write. He takes on the writing job after a productive period where he adapted the Stieg Larsson novel The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo for David Fincher and Scott Rudin at Sony Pictures Entertainment and made a deal to write the followup, The Girl Who Played with Fire. Time Crimes is an intricate sci-fi thriller in which a man repeatedly goes back in time an hour in an attempt to alter the events of a crime. Nacho Vigalondo wrote and directed the incredible original, released under the title Los Cronocrimenes.
