As the scraping of the Hollywood barrel continues I find myself reporting on the news that a possible Timecop reboot is now firmly lodged in the tinsel town pipeline.
The 1995 original starred Jean Claude Van Damme and was set in the near future where time travel has become possible but is regulated by law enforcement agencies. Van Damme plays one of these ‘Timecops’ and becomes embroiled in a conspiracy involving a crooked politician and a plot to exploit the time travelling technology. Hilarity ensues and before long we are treated to some kitchen unit man-splits in heavy underpants.
Word through the Internet is that the plan is to completely reboot this movie, taking it back to it’s original Dark Horse comic roots. No word yet if Van Damme will be given a role.
