Timecop reboot (w/o JCVD)- news, rumors, images until release

The studio is looking to do an original reboot with a reworked concept; the project is currently out to writers. Van Damme is not involved with the project,
http://collider.com/timecop-reboot/

Seems like it would be a fine scifiaction film. The right actor would be 2-3 film franchise.

Very early in development. Figure 2-3 years before we see a film.

IMO this is one of JCVD's top 4-5 films. After Bloodsport, Universal Soldier I'd rank this probably 3rd. It would be nice to see JCVD in a cameo role. Maybe he's even head of the program in this reboot.

Don't forget this is also a comic book property from Dark Horse Comics.

I loved the first movie when it came out. Can't wait to see what they do with a reboot.

I thought Timecop was really cool. (Only problem I had: Where the hell do those sleds go when somebody emerges into the past?)

(side note: Bruce McGill seems to like playing time travelers...QL (sorta), Voyager, and this...)

Okay, guys, it's a remake, not a reboot.

^ With feature films, that's effectively the same thing.

I enjoyed the original and could see myself seeing this in theatres. Thanks for posting the news.

Do you remember what it was roughly? It's been a long time since I've seen the movie, but I thought it was the opposite, that he needed insanely huge amounts of money for the campaign, like in the billions. That's why he was taking extreme measures like manipulating the stock market during the Depression, stealing Confederate gold, and killing off his business partner in a multi-billion dollar computer startup.

Personally, I just want to know when we're all going to be riding around in cars that look like upsized versions of the mouse droid from Star Wars. I can't wait for the distant future of 2004 to arrive.

Anyway, Timecop is an easily adaptable premise that can remain fresh through multiple incarnations, so I'm glad they're giving it another go. The JVCD one is fun, but hardly a scifi classic, so there's room for improvement.
