Michael Bay is attached to direct a film adaptation of Wesley Chu’s upcoming sci-fi novel “Time Salavager” for Paramount Pictures.
Set in a future where the human race has abandoned Earth and colonized the stars, we follow a convicted criminal named James Griffin-Mars, who is identified as one of a select group ideally suited for time-travel missions that could delay humanity’s demise.
He’s sent to Earth’s past to recover resources and treasure without altering the timeline. On a final mission he meets Elise Kim, an intriguing scientist from a previous century who is fated to die during the destruction of an ocean rig. James brings Elise back to the future with him, saving her life, but turning them both into fugitives.
Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Mark Vahradian will produce
