It was announced back in April of 2008 that Steven Zaillian and Agnes Metre would be producing an English-language remake of Nacho Vigalondo’s awesome Spanish-language Timecrimes (Los Cronocrimenes). United Artists had tapped Timothy J. Sexton (Children of Men) to pen the remake and that was the last we heard. A new report has surfaced on SciFiWorld that Zaillian may jump behind the camera for the time travel reboot.
In the original a man accidentally gets into a time machine and travels back in time nearly an hour. Finding himself will be the first of a series of disasters of unforeseeable consequences.
Zaillian is well know having penned Schindler’s List, Awakenings, and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. He also directed Searching for Bobby Fischer, All the King’s Men and A Civil Action.
