Timecop Planned for Big Screen Reboot

by SuperHeroHype

May 22, 2013

Dark Horse Comics' Timecop is heading back the big screen. The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Universal Pictures is currently developing the property for a franchise reboot with Marc Shmuger and Tom McNulty producing.

"What a dream: to travel through time," Dark Horse's official description of the series reads, "You can change the past, the future, your future. Then imagine Max Walker, one of the Time Enforcement Commission's toughest and most extreme cops. But as nasty as Walker's methods are, even he may not be able to stop a nefarious plot to destroy the future as we know it."

Originally published as a three-part story in the "Dark Horse Comics" anthology series, Timecop was adapted for the big screen in 1994 with Jean-Claude Van Damme in the lead. That feature version featured a script by the character's creators, Dark Horse President Mike Richardson and Mark Verheiden.

ComingSoon.net spoke with Verheiden about the potential for a Timecop reboot back in 2011.

"Boy, I'd love that," he said of a new film. "I like that rumor. 'Timecop' was a fun project and one of my earlier movies. It was fun to do then and I really think there's a franchise there, whether its TV or film. It would be great to bring it back. I think we should get that rumor going!"

The first Timecop film received a brief television spinoff in 1997 and a direct-to-video sequel Timecop 2: The Berlin Decision in 2003.

Today, The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Journey 2: The Mysterious Island scribes Brian and Mark Gunn will provide the screenplay.

"What a dream: to travel through time," Dark Horse's official description of the series reads, "You can change the past, the future, your future. Then imagine Max Walker, one of the Time Enforcement Commission's toughest and most extreme cops. But as nasty as Walker's methods are, even he may not be able to stop a nefarious plot to destroy the future as we know it."

Originally published as a three-part story in the "Dark Horse Comics" anthology series, Timecop was adapted for the big screen in 1994 with Jean-Claude Van Damme in the lead.
