FilmEngine, Benderspink teaming on sci-fier
No director is yet attached.
The original sci-fi thriller, starring Ashton Kutcher and Amy Smart, was a solid performer for New Line with a worldwide box office of $96 million on a budget of $13 million along with a pair of direct-to-DVD sequels.
Bress and J. Mackeye Gruber co-directed and co-wrote the original. Kutcher portrayed a character who had the ability to travel back in time and change the present by changing what he had done in his past — but found that changing several childhood traumas created unintended consequences.
New Line-based Benderspink produced “We’re the Millers,” starring Jennifer Aniston and Jason Sudeikis.
