Time for more Timecop?

Besides all the temporal law enforcement, the 1994 sci-fi flick TIMECOP also presented kitchen combat tactics and illustrated the hazards of dual Ron Silvers colliding. But despite a short-lived TV show and a direct-to-vid sequel, there is apparently more to be mined from the concept made famous by a mildly mulleted Jean-Claude Van Damme.

IESB recently chatted with Dark Horse Comics honcho Mike Richardson, who initially introduced the premise on the printed page. Richardson states that he has been talking to Universal about the possibility of bringing the property back to the screen. It's unknown if it would be a remake or just a different story using the chronal crimefighting concept, but IESB claims a well-known action star is "circling" the potential project.

Van Damme, meanwhile, continues to help Dolph Lundgren, Steven Seagal and Marc Dacascos keep your local video store's bottom shelf fully stocked with disposable action flicks.
