United Artists has recruited Timothy J. Sexton to pen Timecrimes, the adaptation of Nacho Vigalondo's Spanish-language film Los Cronocrimenes.

Steven Zaillian and Agnes Metre are producing the feature, a noirish thriller about a man who travels back in time half an hour to prevent a serious crime. UA picked up the remake rights back in January, when the original film -- for which Magnolia holds the U.S. distribution rights -- played the Sundance Film Festival.

Sexton, repped by Endeavor, scored the sought-after assignment on the strength of his work on the feature Children of Men, nominated for an Academy Award, and TV projects like HBO's Live From Baghdad.
