DreamWorks is backing a <strong><em>Timecrimes</em></strong> remake with Steven Zallian rewriting the script
Writer-producer Steven Zaillian has shifted his remake of the 2007 thriller Timecrimes from United Artists to DreamWorks and is now rewriting the script.

We first reported on the remake almost exactly three years ago, when Zaillian was only attached as a producer of the United Artists project. Zaillian moved the project over to DreamWorks, where he has under a first-look deal. Timothy J. Sexton wrote the original drafts of the remake.

The original Timecrimes was written and directed by Nacho Vigalondo and centers on a man who continually goes back in time to try and shape the events of a crime. Nacho Vigalondo will executive produce the remake along with Garrett Basch and original Timecrimes producer Eduardo Carneros.

Steven Zaillian also recently wrote the remake script for David Fincher's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, which arrives in theaters December 21.
