‘The Butterfly Effect’ Reboot Taking Flight (EXCLUSIVE)

FilmEngine, Benderspink teaming on sci-fier

FilmEngine and Benderspink are teaming to reboot 2004’s “The Butterfly Effect” with original writer-director Eric Bress on board to pen the new script.

Producers are Anthony Rhulen, Chris Bender and JC Spink, as they did on the original, along with Film Engine president Navid McIllhargey. Paul Rock of Skyrock is exec producing.

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.
