According to The Hollywood Reporter, the reboot of Jean-Claude Van Damme actioner Timecop Рbased on the 1992 Dark Horse comic Рis now being developed by Journey 2: The Mysterious Island writers Mark and Brian Gun.

While that creator credit isn’t exactly inspiring, the site describes the movie as “a more gritty and grounded police story with the sci-fi in the background, though will still have the main character on a personal journey.”

Most excitingly though, it’s also being compared to 2012 sci-fi hit Looper.
