Michael Bay will produce found-footage time travel movie with Dean Israelite helming
Plot details are under wraps other than the film would have a mockumentary angle centered around time travel.
Par has been high on this project since picking it up last October and was keen on getting it fast-tracked before DreamWorks “Glimmer,” another found footage time-travel pic, goes into pre-production.
Casting is already underway, with the studio looking for unknowns to fill the roles.
Though Bay is known best for directing big-budget tentpoles, Platinum Dunes taken on a range of varying properties. The banner has the $2 million budgeted thriller “Purge” coming out next month and is currently in pre-production on the reboot of “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.”
Bay and Platinum Dunes are repped by WME. Israelite is repped by Principato-Young.
