18 October 2016 5:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Wrap is reporting that Doug Liman is returning to the world of Jumper for a 60-minute pilot for YouTube Red, which will be based upon Impulse, the third novel in Steven Gould’s book series. Liman will direct the pilot, as well as executive producing, with Jeffrey Lieber (Lost) penning the script.

Impulse follows “a rebellious 16-year-old girl, who has always felt different from her peers and has longed to escape from her seemingly quaint small town. When a local drug dealer attempts to assault her, she discovers her extraordinary ability to teleport. This newfound power confirms her conviction that she really is different from everybody else, but it now makes her the focus of those who want to control her.”

Jumper was released in 2008, and featured a cast that included Hayden Christensen, Jamie Bell, Rachel Bilson, Max Thieriot, AnnaSophia Robb, Diane Lane, Michael Rooker, and Samuel L. Jackson. »

Series among trio of new original shows announced by YouTube at Mipcom Keynote.

YouTube is joining forces with Doug Liman on new original sci-fi show Impulse, a sequel to his 2008 feature film Jumper about a young man whose teleportation skills make him a target for extremists.

YouTube has commissioned the drama alongside Universal Cable Productions (Ucp) in a first collaboration together.

Liman and his long-time producer Dave Bartis are attached to the project alongside Lost writer and creator Jeff Lieber, who is adapting the novel.
