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.
