Riddick director David Twohy is staying in the sci-fi genre, signing on to direct Relativity Media's Replay.

We first reported on the project back in July, when Relativity picked up the then-untitled script by Joe Gazzam. That report revealed the plot will center on a father and son, although now we have new details. The story will follow Tyler Vaughn, a test subject in a quantum experiment who is sent four days into the future. There he learns that his son has been killed and he is the prime suspect in the murder. When that day ends, he's pulled back to the previous day, as he tries to solve his son's murder before he gets back to present day.

Ahmet Zappa, Alan Gasmer, Peter Jaysen and Ryan Kavanaugh are producing, with Tucker Tooley and Devon Schiff serving as executive producers. The filmmakers are eyeing an early 2015 production start for Replay.

David Twohy's other directing credits include Below, A Perfect Getaway and the first two Riddick movies, Pitch Black and The Chronicles of Riddick.
