'Timecop' Reboot Gets 'Journey 2' Writers Brian and Mark Gunn

9 April 2014 5:39 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Brian Gunn and Mark Gunn have signed on to write the screenplay for Universal Pictures' Timecop reboot, nearly one year after the project was first announced.

Jean-Claude Van Damme starred in the original Timecop, which was released in 1994, centering on a law enforcement agency that regulates time travel. The actor portrayed an officer who tangles with a corrupt politician (Ron Silver), trying to use time travel to further his career. Mia Sara, Bruce McGill and Gloria Reuben co-starred in the film.

The reboot is said to be more of a "gritty and grounded" crime tale, with the sci-fi elements pushed to the background. The project has drawn comparisons to Rian Johnson's 2012 time travel feature Looper, although this reboot will be much larger in scale. The story debuted as a three-part tale in the Dark Horse Comics anthology series, which spawned the original Timecop, a short-lived 1997 Timecop TV series, »
