With studios continuing to raid their vaults for vintage action franchises to reboot, Universal has stumbled upon sci-fi caper Timecop , and has decided it’s time for an update.
Set in the near future, the original film plays out in a world where time travel has become possible, but is strictly regulated by the police.
Van Damme played a copper who discovers a crooked politician using the technology to further his political career, and sets about bringing him to justice.
Details concerning the proposed reboot are few and far between, but it’s thought that the studio will completely re-imagine the concept by going back to the original Dark Horse comic on which it was based, with writers currently being considered for the job.
It is also thought that Van Damme is not being considered for a return, which means they’ll have to find somebody else flexible enough to do the splits on command. Hopefully…
