Here\'s your timeline

Sundance isn’t known for having a wealth of cool science fiction or fantasy films pop up during the snowbound film festival in Park City, but this year the film Time Crimes impressed both audiences and critics (and at Sundance, everyone’s a critic) which means a remake is on the way with a bigger budget and some big names.

Timothy J. Sexton, who adapted the 1992 P.D. James novel “The Children of Men” into the Academy Award nominated screenplay will be tackling the rewrite of Nacho Vigalondo’s movie for American audiences. Now, having read parts of “The Children of Men,” I know that the script is only very loosely based on the novel, and that Sexton (along with director Alfonso Cuarón) helped create a pretty vast world, yet stayed true to the singular storyline the entire time.

Like most movies about time travel, Time Crimes can hurt your head from time to time if you think about it too much. Hopefully the original film will be released before the Sexton-penned version makes it to theaters, because more people need to see this flick. Sexton is also rewriting the planned remake of Logan’s Run, and these three films may seat him squarely in the science fiction camp. A great writer stuck in science fiction? We wouldn’t mind.
