“Hidden Figures” director Ted Melfi is in final negotiations to helm the time travel feature “Harry’s All Night Hamburgers” for Warner Bros. Pictures.
Steve Desmond and Michael Sherman’s script centers on a down-on-his-luck high school senior who discovers that the roadside diner where he works nights is actually the hangout of travellers from across parallel universes.
Ignoring the advice of the diner’s owner, he sets off on an adventure through the multiverse in search of his own perfect life – only to learn that happiness doesn’t come as easy as pressing a button.
The story is based on Lawrence Watt-Evans’s 1987 Hugo Award-winning short story. Andrew Lazar (“American Sniper”) will produce. Melfi is expected to helm Fox 2000’s “Fruit Loops” before getting to work on this.
