United Artists has brought in writer Timothy J. Sexton (Children of Men) to work on Timecrimes, the adaptation of Nacho Vigalondo's Spanish-language film Timecrimes.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the noirish thriller is about a man who travels back in time half an hour to prevent a serious crime.

Sexton scored the sought-after assignment on the strength of his work on the feature Children of Men, nominated for an Academy Award, and TV projects like HBO's Live From Baghdad.
