Universal Pictures and Global Produce are set to develop a remake of the 1994 Jean-Claude Van Damme time travel action feature “Timecop”.
The original, based on a Dark Horse Comic mini-series, was set in a near future where time travel is regulated by a special police force.
One officer (Van Damme) runs afoul a crooked politician (Ron Silver) who is using time travel to further his political career. It is one of Van Damme’s most financially and critically successful films (and my personal favorite of his).
This remake however is expected to be more of a reboot, taking the basics and re-imagining the concept so it could serve as a potential franchise launcher.
Marc Shmuger and Tom McNulty will produce the project which is currently out to writers.
