Oscar winner Steve Zaillian tackles time-jumping bandage-man for Dreamworks' remake of Timecrimes

Nacho Vigalondo's Spanish-language thriller TIMECRIMES is a fascinating little time-twister about an average guy trying to unravel a mystery involving a beautiful naked woman and a pink-bandaged stranger.

It's a reasonably small-scale sci-fi film, but the American remake will probably crank up the scope, considering who's involved. The new version is now at Dreamworks, and award-winning screenwriter Steve Zaillian (SCHINDLER'S LIST, AMERICAN GANGSTER) is handling the script.

Zaillian was also working with Vigalondo developing GANGLAND, about a group of game developers whose research on a hardcore crime game leads them into the real-life criminal underworld. Vigalondo himself has been working on an alien invasion project called EXTRATERRESTRIAL.

Zaillian has been busy lately, adapting the hugely popular Stieg Larsson book THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO for David Fincher, and working with Ridley Scott on condensing the Brit miniseries THE RED RIDING TRILOGY (the first of which featured new Spidey Andrew Garfield) for an Americanized remake.

Extra Tidbit: David Cronenberg was previously rumored for the TIMECRIMES remake.

Wow! All these remakes. I really enjoyed Timecrimes and very curious how this remake turns out. Haven't seen the Red Riding Trilogy yet. Loved the Stieg Larsson trilogy!

I'm for this!

I am actually for this. I did enjoy the original, though I still am annoyed without having an explanation of why the naked girl was originally there in the first place before shit hit the fan (i forget the sci-fi term for that). but ya. i'm down! was actually on tv the other day.

Just picked up The Red Riding Trilogy and am excited to watch it. Have heard alot of great things about it.

I just don't know how well the Americanized version of it will be after the success of the original British version.
