‘Timecop’ Reboot at Universal Gets Two Writers

Loads of popular Universal titles are getting the reboot or remake treatment these days, including Jurassic Park in 2015, The Mummy the year after, and the recently announced Battlestar Galactica film, so it makes perfect sense that the studio would pursue a new version of one of their biggest science fiction films, Timecop.

Inspired by a story in the anthology Dark Horse Comics, the original 1994 film starred Jean-Claude Van Damme as a police officer in the future of 2004, fighting time travel crime and, as a result, discovering an interconnected web of political corruption. Timecop opened #1 at the box office, then managed to spin off into a video game for SNES, a short-lived TV show on ABC, a series of novels, and a direct-to-video sequel in 2003 before disappearing from public consciousness.
