Universal rebooting Timecop

A reboot of the “Timecop” film franchise is in the works, but Jean-Claude Van Damme won’t be in the driver’s seat of the time-machine for the return trip.

The Hollywood Reporter says the long-gestating redo (we’ve reported on it on Moviehole a few times over the years, I see) of the 1994 Van Damme vehicle – it itself based on the Dark Horse comic series of the same name – is showing signs of life, with Universal getting behind the project. Marc Shmuger will produce the film via his Universal-based Global Produce banner alongside Tom McNulty.

The new film is designed to be a complete overhaul of the film franchise, so aside from the name – and likely the lead character – there’ll be no links to earlier “Timecop” movies (“Timecop”, one of Van Damme’s most successful films, spawned a short-lived TV series and direct-to-video sequel, starring Jason Scott Lee)

A writer is currently being sought for the project.
