Bourne Identity Director Liman To Make Time And Again
Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity, Jumper, Mr & Mrs Smith) is set to direct a big screen version of Jack Finney’s 1970 time travel novel Time And Again for Lionsgate, reports Variety.
The novel is about an illustrator from the present who agrees to take part in a US government experiment to see if people can be sent into the past via hypnosis. He chooses to go back to 1882 to solve a mystery in his girlfriend’s past. The government boffins are also keen to see if their subjects’ interactions with the past change the present.
The book was illustrated with pictures drawn by and photos taken by the protagonist (many of them genuine images from the period).
Liman is currently just about to shoot All You Need Is Kill, starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt.
