The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Universal Pictures is currently developing a reboot to Timecop. The science fiction film is based on a comic book by Dark Horse Comics. Marc Shmuger and Tom McNulty are attached to produce the project.
“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.”
Timecop was previously adapted for the big screen in September of 1994 with Jean-Claude Van Damme in the lead and Peter Hyams directing. That feature version featured a script by the character’s creators, Dark Horse President Mike Richardson and Mark Verheiden. The film grossed over $100 million in worldwide box office. Although an official was never developed, the film was followed by brief television spinoff in 1997 and a 2003 direct-to-video sequel Timecop: The Berlin Decision.
No date has been set for production or release at this time.
