Another Adaptation Of Timecop Is Coming

Originally a Dark Horse comic and hen adapted into a couple of feature films by the publisher’s very own Mike Richardson, Timecop also became a short lived TV series on ABC some 15 years ago or so.

Its story really is the sort of sticky concept that could be endlessly recycled I think, with no small thanks to that deceptively crass title. Really, Timecop says so much. It promises something specific but still quite open ended – a cop of time. What kind of adventures would they get embroiled in?

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Timecop‘s next iteration is coming. Universal are said to be considering it as a reboot – of course – and apparently, Jean Claude Van Damme won’t be involved.

Well, not yet anyway. Surely he’s just the sort of stunt cameo these films tend to go for? And I mean stunt quite literally.

Here’s my favourite scene from the original. Ironically, it’s not very Timey or Coppy, but it certainly stuck in the mind by it’s own means.

Right, next step: reboot The Mask. Step after that: cross it over with Timecop, get the Dark Horse Cinematic Universe going. Maybe.

Okay, maybe not. Still, reboot The Mask anyway.
