Colin Trevorrow's time-travel script, Stealing Time, is back on the table

09.24.2015

After your film makes well over a billion dollars worldwide, it's only natural that studios will start digging up your past work. Seven years ago Colin Trevorrow wrote STEALING TIME, a time-traveling adventure film which Walt Becker (WILD HOGS) was set to direct for Columbia, and now THR reports that the project has been revived by Steven Spielberg and Dreamworks.

STEALING TIME involves "a scientist who flees into the past to protect his time machine, forcing his son and grandson to rebuild the device in the present to rescue him, all while fleeing crooks bent on exploiting time travel." Dreamworks is hoping to recapture the tone of the Amblin adventure movies produced by Spielberg in the 1980s, and STEALING TIME apparently fits the bill. Tim Dowling (THIS MEANS WAR) has been tapped to pen a new draft and Colin Trevorrow will be on board as an executive producer.

Trevorrow has seen a pretty impressive rise over the past few years, beginning with JURASSIC WORLD which led to securing directing gigs for BOOK OF HENRY, INTELLIGENT LIFE, and the big one, STAR WARS: EPISODE IX. How can he ever top that?

I'll give shout outs to Bill and Ted's, Time Bandits, Time Crimes, Primer, Hot Tub Time Machine (1) and while loosely associated with a time machine special mentions to Frequency and Groundhog Day

No love for Back to the Future, but instead to Bill & Ted & Hot Tub Time Machine, that makes no sense?

Looper; Terminator 2; Butterfly Effect despite all its flaws; Back to the Future II and of course: Donnie Darko
Predestination however: no. Not at all. I just found it boring.

Trevorrow is the most over-rated filmmaker out there. Safety Not Guaranteed was cute, but predictable. But for Jurassic World he made the dinosaurs behave like people, for crying out loud the T-Rex and raptor nodded at each other out of mutual respect. It was soooo fucking stupid, it was Sy-Fy original stupid. Every bit as stupid as making the shark in Jaws 4 go out for revenge. People bash JP3 for having the Raptors talk. Trevorrow took that to even more asinine levels. Jurassic World would

What are some of your favourite time-travel themed films?

Looper, Twelve Monkeys, and Predistination to name a few. But curious to see who they cast as the lead for this one.
