Big-time producer Dan Lin has found his next project: Lionsgate’s time-traveling adventure FOR ALL TIME, with a script by relative newcomer David Crabtree. Lionsgate acquired the rights to Crabtree’s original spec at the end of 2013.
The movie is set in the future where time-travel has been invented in order to fix past mistakes. These missions, in order to course-correct history, are executed by “temponauts” aka time-travel secret agents. When one of these temponauts goes rogue on a standard mission in order to save the woman he loves, a fellow temponaut, an intense battle erupts over the fate of the future.
Time-travel is a staple of the science-fiction and fantasy genres and has been depicted in a variety of ways in films such as 12 Monkeys, Looper, Back to the Future, About Time, Groundhog Day, and the Harry Potter franchise. This film’s premise of time-travel agents brings a unique twist to the tried concept.
The film has been set at Lionsgate for some time now, but Lin only recently signed on with this production banner Lin Pictures. He will be joined by executives Ryan Halprin, Jonathan Eirich, James Myers, Matt Janzen, and Erik Feig, who will be producing as well as overseeing the project for Lionsgate and Summit Entertainment.
Since 2004, Lin has served as an executive and producer for numerous projects, including the Oscar-winning films The Aviator and The Departed, as well as Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes films and the current LEGO Movie franchise from Warner Bros. Pictures. In the television world, he is serving as executive producer for the movie-to-TV adaptations of Lethal Weapon for FOX and Frequency for The CW.
