New Line Cinema has acquired Richard Doetsch’s upcoming time-travel novel “The Thirteenth Hour” reports Variety.
Described as a cross between “The Bourne Identity” and “The Time Traveler’s Wife”, the book follows a man accused of brutally murdering his wife who is given a chance to save her by going back in time, in one-hour increments. He puts together clues to figure out not only who killed her but why.
Michael De Luca will produce the film, one of his first New Line projects since leaving his post as production president eight years ago. Doetsch previously wrote bestseller “The Thieves of Heaven.”
