Deadline is reporting that the American remake of the excellent Spanish time travel movie Time Crimes (aka Timecrimes, aka Los Cronocrimenes) is getting a rewrite.
Dreamworks has hired on Steve Zaillian, who’s on a bit of a hot streak lately, to put it mildly. He’s the man behind David Fincher’s upcoming The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo adaptation (as well as The Girl Who Played With Fire) and Bennett Miller’s Moneyball which stars Brad Pitt, as well as The Irishman with Scorsese, De Niro, Pacino and Pesci. Quite the list!
The first draft of Time Crimes was made by Tim Sexton (Children of Men), and it will be interesting to see what they change for the American release. Let Me In shut up a couple of detractors of quick foreign remakes but the original Time Crimes was quite an odd and quiet little film. More on the remake as we hear it!
