Salt director Phillip Noyce to helm time travel film Timeless

While SALT was no great shakes (...), Phillip Noyce has nonetheless delivered in the directorial department before with such films as THE QUIET AMERICAN and RABBIT-PROOF FENCE, as well as the Jack Ryan films CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER and PATRIOT GAMES. But how will the filmmaker fare with a time travel film?

According to Deadline, the Australian-born director will tackle just that in a film entitled TIMELESS from a spec script by ENCHANTED writer Bill Kelly (PREMONITION, BLAST FROM THE PAST). Here's a breakdown of the story:

"A recently wed man loses his wife and discovers after the fact she has left him a fortune. Haunted by an unresolved issue between himself and his wife, the man invests the money to build a time travel device, just to see her one last time."

Also on Noyce's plate are two projects he's been linked to: DIRT MUSIC based on the Tim Winton book which has had fellow Aussie Russell Crowe attached for some time, and spy thriller WENCESLAS SQUARE.
