Fresh off announcing the financing of their diamond-hiest action film Foolproof, and post Wesley Snipes’ Gallowwalkers Lionsgate domestic summer release, Boundless Pictures’ co-founders and producing partners Courtney Lauren Penn and Brandon Burrows announced another addition to the Boundless Pictures production schedule today – they have optioned the movie Timeless.
The film is written by The Zombie Diaries trilogy writer-director Michael Bartlett who found commercial success when he wrote and sold the first two ‘Diaries’ to the Weinstein Company.
Set in London in a crime-ridden, dystopian future, Timeless is the story of a time-traveling hit-man fatally addicted to a street drug that allows for the time-travel. The godfather of the crime world he is a part of sets up a time-bending life-or-death chess game with him, exacting hits from him by dangling the ultimate lure: the ability to travel back to right the one wrong that haunts him – his inability to save the life of his first love.
“Addiction alters inner perceptions, influences the mind and plays interesting games with memory – discovering Michael’s script brings that interior struggle to life with pulse-pounding action. We have worked with Michael before and look forward to this adventure. With ‘Gallowwalkers’ release right behind us and ‘FoolProof’ in pre-production, the timing couldn’t be better to add TIMELESS to our company slate”, said Boundless Pictures co-Founder Courtney Lauren Penn.
