Steve Zaillian May Also Direct the ‘Timecrimes’ Remake

21 December 2011 4:17 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

He’s already writing the script, so why not take a seat in the director’s chair as well? Steve Zaillian is probably best known as a writer (for modern classics like Schindler’s List and for this year’s double feature of Moneyball and The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo), but he’s also done some strong directing work with Searching For Bobby Fischer and A Civil Action. He’s already on board to write a remake of Nacho Vigalondo’s Timecrimes, and now The Playlist is reporting that he’s considering directing as well. It would undoubtedly be a different sandbox for him to play in, but the biggest question is whether the magic of the original can be maintained in a domestic version from a man more known for broadly appealing adult drama. The original is rightfully hailed, but it’s also a cult movie for a reason. Plus »

Zaillian Keen On Directing "Timecrimes"

20 December 2011 9:25 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Oscar-winning scribe Steve Zaillian, whose most current work is adapting the script for David Fincher's "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" which opens tonight in the United States, says he's considering stepping into the director's chair on the remake of Spanish cult sci-fi thriller "Timecrimes" set up at Dreamworks Pictures.

Nacho Vigalondo's original follows a man who repeatedly goes back in time an hour in an attempt to alter the events of a crime. Zaillian came onboard to write the remake back in January. While no director was set at the time, David Cronenberg had previously been linked as a potential candidate. The Canadian helmer however dismissed the talk the other month.

Zaillian tells Coming Soon that "That's something I might direct but I don't know. We have to cast it, but it's a tricky one, because I want to make it really low budget. I don't want »

Steven Zaillian Wants to Direct the Remake of ‘Timecrimes’

20 December 2011 5:00 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

It doesn't feel like the last time we reported on a Us remake of TimeCrimes was almost a year ago. But it was back in January that Steven Zaillian was reported [1] as the screenwriter responsible for the roadmap for the remake of Nacho Vigalondo's fan-favorite time-travel thriller. He was working from a previous draft from Tim Sexton, and Zaillian was producing as well. Rumors that David Cronenberg might direct [2] had been scuttled, and at the time we didn't know who might direct the remake. Now, while doing the press rounds for The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, which Zaillian wrote, he says that he'd like to direct the TimeCrimes remake. Speaking to ComingSoon [3], Zaillian said, [Timecrimes is] something I might direct but I don't know. We have to cast it, but it's a tricky one, because I want to make it really low budget. I don't want to do a really big budgeted film for that. »

Steve Zaillian May Possbily Direct American Remake of 'Timecrimes'

19 December 2011 10:08 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Though you may better know his work on screenplays like Schindler's List, Gangs of New York and American Gangster, not to mention Oscar buzzworthy writing on both Moneyball and David Fincher's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, writer Steve Zaillian has also stepped behind the camera a few times with films like Searching for Bobby Fischer, All the King's Men and A Civil Action. Now it sounds like he's in the midst of sitting in the director's chair again as Collider recently spoke to Zaillian who revealed that in addition to producing and writing the remake of Timecrimes set up at DreamWorks, he might also direct. For those unfamiliar with Nacho Vigalondo's original film, here's a tease of the story: A man being pursued by a murderer stumbles into a mysterious lab and accidentally travels back in time.

Steven Zaillian to direct a remake of Timecrimes?

19 December 2011 8:51 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

One of the most inventive sci-fi films of the last five years, Nacho Vigalondo’s Timecrimes, may be getting a Us remake from Steven Zaillian

Nacho Vigalondo’s low-budget sci-fi thriller Timecrimes was brisk, inventive, and extremely creepy. About a middle-aged man whose idle moment of voyeurism draws him into a mind-bending, recursive travel through time that sees events, Timecrimes was a breathtaking debut for the Spanish director.

While we’re still waiting for a UK release of Vigalondo’s second feature, Extraterrestrial, a potentially great sci-fi comedy about a young couple who watch an alien invasion occur from the confines of their flat, along comes the news that writer and occasional director Steven Zaillian may be about to bring a Us remake of Timecrimes to the screen.

While promoting his latest screenwriting project, David Fincher’s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, Zaillian revealed that he hoped to direct his own version of Timecrimes. »

Screenwriter Steven Zaillian May Direct Timecrimes Remake

19 December 2011 6:05 AM, PST | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’ screenwriter Steven Zaillian is considering directing an American remake of the sci-fi mystery ‘Timecrimes,’ Collider is reporting. The scribe has said he owns the rights to the remake of the 2007 Spanish film. He added he plans on moving the action to the United States, but would retain the film’s original idea. The original ‘Timecrimes,’ which was written and directed by Nacho Vigalondo, follows a man who relives half an hour of his life three times. Zaillian said “The brilliance of that story is in the idea…It is such a big idea and a great idea that I’m not going to change that.” He »

Timecrimes Remake Finally on the Move?

19 December 2011 1:45 AM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

2008. That's when word of a possible remake of the stellar foreign flick from director Nacho Vigalondo Timecrimes (Los Cronocrimenes) first started floating around. Honestly, it's been so long that we forgot about it. That might be changing soon. Read on for the details.

According to SciFi World, writer/director Steven Zaillian (Schindler's List, Awakenings, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Searching for Bobby Fischer, All the King's Men, A Civil Action) may get behind the camera for the time travel reboot.

In case you’ve been ignoring any and all info about the film, it follows a normal, everyday man whose curiosity about a topless sunbather leads him to a masked stranger in a trench coat, time travel, and, ultimately, murder. That's one hell of a recipe, no?

Writer Steven Zaillian Talks About ‘Timecrimes’ Remake

18 December 2011 9:37 PM, PST | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

With The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and Moneyball both landing high on many critics’ end of year lists, I think its safe to say Stephen Zaillian in going to be ringing in the New Year with a lot to be thankful for this year.  The writer worked on the screenplay for both films and has just received a Golden Globe nomination for his screenplay for Moneyball which he wrote with Aaron Sorkin.  Even though it looks like Zaillian will soon be busy with the other two adaptations of the Swedish “Millennium Trilogy,”  he hasn’t lost sight of a project that has long been talked about.  2007′s Timecrimes was an exciting foray into pulp territory with a healthy mix of Philip K. Dick science fiction.  Nacho Vigalondo’s Spanish language feature-length debut has garnered quite a devoted following (including Andy and myself) who praise the film as one of »

Nearly Four Years Later, Steven Zaillian to Direct 'Timecrimes'?

18 December 2011 8:36 PM, PST | bloody-disgusting.com | See recent Bloody-Disgusting.com news »

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. »

Steven Zaillian May Direct Remake of Timecrimes

18 December 2011 9:48 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Steven Zaillian is having a very good year. One of the best screenwriters working today, Zaillian is responsible for films ranging from Schindler’s List to Gangs of New York.  This year, two of Zaillian’s films are turning lots of heads: Moneyball and David Fincher’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.  Steve is currently in New York for the Dragon Tattoo press junket and he got the chance to sit down for an exclusive interview with the prolific scribe.  While we’ll have the full interview up soon, we wanted to share a piece of news that the writer dropped.  In addition to writing, Zaillian has also gotten in the director's chair a few times (most recently with 2006’s All the King’s Men), and during the course of the interview Zaillian revealed that he’s hoping to direct an American remake of Timecrimes.

Steve Zaillian Talks ‘Timecrimes’ Remake and ‘A Thousand Splendid Suns’

18 December 2011 8:12 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Blame it on a lack of interest or dearth of information, but, either way, I sort of completely forget that the Timecrimes remake was even being prepared. The last news came in January; Steve Zaillian was rewriting Tim Sexton‘s take on Nacho Vigalondo‘s time travel thriller, which still had a planned release of 2012.

Now, a recent interview with ComingSoon sees the screenwriter providing a long-overdue update. From my perspective, the most important of these is that he’d like to direct — even if some real challenges lie ahead. His quote on said challenges can be read below:

“That’s something I might direct but I don’t know. We have to cast it, but it’s a tricky one, because I want to make it really low budget. I don’t want to do a really big budgeted film for that. I think part of its appeal is »

Steve Zaillian to direct American remake of Timecrimes?

18 December 2011 8:01 AM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

That's the rumor currently circulating on websites SciFi World and Comingsoon.net (the latter article being tweeted about by Nacho Vigalondo, writer and director of the original film.) Zaillain is no stranger to adaptation; he wrote the screenplays for the film adaptations of Schindler's List, Awakenings and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, among many others, as well as having directed and written All the King's Men, A Civil Action and Searching for Bobby Fischer. It's a solid body of work, if somewhat on the mainstream Hollywood side. The Comingsoon.net article features a quote from Zaillian from an upcoming interview expressing his interest in the project:"That's something I might direct but I don't know. We have to cast it, but it's a tricky one, because I want »

17 December 2011 | Comingsoon.net | See recent Comingsoon.net news »

Oscar-winning screenwriter Steve Zaillian has earned a reputation as the King of the Adaptation with some of his past work including Steven Spielberg's Schindler's List , and that rep should continue with his screenplay for David Fincher's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo , out on Tuesday, December 20. When ComingSoon.net sat down with Zaillian to discuss it earlier today, we got around to some of his other projects including the proposed English remake of Nacho Vigalondo's Spanish cult classic Timecrimes for DreamWorks Pictures. The remake actually came up recently when we spoke with director David Cronenberg , who denied any involvement with the project, but we learned that Zailian himself is toying with directing it.

Spanish Cinema in New York

11 December 2011 9:25 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Spanish Cinema Now opened on Friday with Nacho Vigalondo's Extraterrestrial (it screens again on Thursday) and runs through December 22. Blogging for the Film Society of Lincoln Center, Jeffrey Bloomer notes that this year's festival features a 10-film retrospective of films by the late Luis García Berlanga, "who helped fuel a resurgence in Spanish cinema in the desolate years following the Spanish Civil War…. Two of Berlanga's most acclaimed films screen back-to-back on December 11 and 15. His beloved debut, Welcome Mr Marshall! (1953) [clip above], follows a village's misbegotten attempts to finagle post-war American aid from visiting officials, while Plácido (1961) is a winking Oscar-nominated Christmas story about a town where affluent families each take in a poor person for the holiday. Both are considered to be among Berlanga's masterpieces."

Back, though, for a moment to Extraterrestrial, "sci-fi comedy of cuckolding — a cynical and screwball study of love and suspicion," as Henry Stewart calls it in the L. »

‘Timecrimes’ Director Nacho Vigalondo Peers Into ‘Windows’ For English-Language Debut

7 December 2011 11:19 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Spanish writer/director Nacho Vigalondo‘s career has been worth tracking since his first full-length film, Timecrimes, debuted in 2007. His second feature, Extraterrestre, debuted just this year at the Toronto International Film Festival (our review here). With Timecrimes slated to get the American remake treatment, it’s not entirely surprising that Vigalondo’s third film, a thriller called Windows, will be his first English language movie.

Quiet Earth reports Windows started off as an experimental Cloverfield and Paranormal Activity style film, but has since ballooned into a full and, at $4 million, ambitiously-budgeted feature. It is being described to producers as  ”a tense, fast-paced thriller with drops of humor and horror, about the world of the Web, which has made prisoners of us all.”

What does that mean? I’m not sure, but after seeing Timecrimes, I’ll give Vigalondo the benefit of the doubt every time. I haven’t caught Extraterrestre yet, »

Sliff ’11 Review: ‘The Man In The Maze’

19 November 2011 11:00 AM, PST | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

We continue our St. Louis International Film Festival coverage with one of the few, if not only, straight horror films of the festival, The Man in the Maze.

The film starts off with three people in the woods captured by a man with his face wrapped in bandages. Before he can carry out his murders, a fourth friend comes and knocks out the mysterious man. Once his friends are released and the villain is tied to a tree and made sure that escape would be highly unlikely, the friends begin to try to find their way out of the heavily wooded area.

The film is  the debut of filmmaker Mitesh Kumar Patel and stars some relatively unknowns. I remember seeing stills of this film earlier this year and was immediately thinking of Nacho Vigalondo‘s briliant science fiction film Timecrimes. The villain looks a lot like the same design of »
