Jean-Claude Van Damme's "Timecop" Getting a Reboot, Writers Hired

Posted: April 10th, 2014 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Jean-Claude Van DammeSubmit Comment
Universal Pictures has been trying to reboot Jean-Claude Van Damme's 1994 time-travel action film "Timecop" for many years. Back in May, the studio was reaching out to writers. And now comes word that it just hired writing partners Mark and Brian Gunn (Journey 2: The Mysterious Island).

The original "Timecop," which grossed $102 million globally, is set in the near future where time travel is regulated by a police force. One officer (Van Damme) attempts to stop a crooked politician (Ron Silver) using time travel to further his political career.

The new version is said to be a more gritty and grounded police story with the sci-fi not playing as big of a role. It will still focus on one man's personal journey. Van Damme will not be involved.

Rebooting mediocre-to-forgettable genre flicks from the 90s? What’s next, Johnny Mnemonic? Jesus Christ, Universal. Nobody cares about this. There’s no fan-culture money in the title. Just make something new for f*ck’s sake.

I second the Tank Girl reboot.

I would also pay to see a Johnny Mnemonic reboot.

Also, Cannon, Timecop was a f*cking great movie. Probably Van Dammes best of the 90s.

Timecop without the 'time'.

Sci-fi without the 'sci'

More about the cops personal journey

why not take his weiner away and make it Cagney & Lacey

@triggax

I'm not saying it was a bad movie, but calling "great" is a stretch (Van Damme's 90s best is Double Impact, but that's just me). My point is, I'm just not sure what Universal thinks they're mining here, as if this is some kind of nostalgic gem of pop-culture on which to be capitalized. It just seems so arbitrary.

I suppose there is the original comic book source material to consider. If they're going back to that with some high-concept reimagining in mind ...I dunno. I guess, maybe.

This could actually work well but only, and ONLY, if they ditch those lousy two Journey 2 writers.
