Universal Plans TIMECOP Reboot. With No Van Damme, Damnit!
In my mind this is how I picture JCVD took the news that Universal was planning to reboot one of his most successful films without his involvement.
Universal is presently searching out writers to reboot and re-imagine the concept of the 1994 sci-fi actioner Timecop. You will remember that the story of the film is about a police force called the Time Enforcement Commission that regulates time travel. Van Damme played the cop who crosses a crooked politician using time travel to further his career.
Can we just take a second to remind Universal what happened to Sony and the near disastrous performance of a reboot of a much more idolized sci-fi action epic Total Recall. The film bombed domestically here in North America. If it were not for the foreign box office tickets, Sony and affiliated production companies would have never recuperated their costs.
So tread wisely Universal. But. More importantly. Who will do those splits?
