Robert Zemeckis Coming Back To Live Action For New Time-Travel Film, Has Been Considering The Superman Movie

This weekend sees Robert Zemeckis’ triumphant Back to the Future re-released on cinema screens across the UK (US readers, your chance will come in October, but for two screenings only) so it seems only timely (ahem) that we now hear about his plans for another continuum-skipping picture, Timeless.

Timeless is:

…a big tent pole picture that will be written by Mike Thompson. Zemeckis and his ImageMovers will produce. Deal is mid six-figures.

So say Deadline.

They also report that, perhaps as part of his ongoing courtship with Warner Bros., Zemeckis considered, or is possibly still considering directorship of the new Superman film. There you go. There’s my pick. 100%.

Also of interest in the story is reference to Zemeckis’ Yellow Submarine as upcoming. Good. It had fallen off the radar and I thought, perhaps, it wasn’t going to happen. But I guess it is. It’s the best choice of material he ever made for his performance capture work, and I’m thinking he could pull off something quite impressive indeed. I certainly loved his first Beatles film.

Incidentally, Mike Thompson’s previous script Steinbeck’s Point of View had a really rather nifty set-up and great pay-off. I hope a copy of the Timeless screenplay just flops into my lap somehow soon.
