'Green Lantern' Writer to Script 'Time Zones' Sci-Fi Flick for Disney

After writing one of the most out-of-this-world, cosmic superhero adaptations to date, Green Lantern writer Marc Guggenheim is heading to Disney for some more sci-fi adventure. Heat Vision reports the writer has been hired to script Time Zones which is oddly described as a race against time merged with a race in time concept. What?! Apparently the story takes place after an event that somehow causes the world to spontaneously develop their own “time zones,” described as fractures in space-time which replace various segments of the world with identical geography at those locations from the past and future. More below!

Therefore, the world could have various locations in time like 1750 in France, 300 B.C. in China and 2065 in New York. Sounds pretty wacky. In this world, one man realizes that because time travel is now a matter of geography, he has the chance to change the past and save the life of his wife, but must team up with his estranged daughter to do so. I can't even count the number of time paradoxes that would result from this plot, but that's the problem with time travel in general. The concept sounds intriguing, and definitely has the feel of a high profile Disney adventure along the lines of National Treasure.

That sounds like it could be lots of fun. I love time travel movies and I enjoyed National Treasure (don't judge me) so I could be down for this!

ok, we'll see. I like the (semi) original sound of this.

I guess it's true. You can only fail up in Hollywood provided you're in the right family.

Green Lantern writer. Disney. That's two strikes against it already.

This sounds like a fun idea, but it's going to be an epic fail. Its going to be like your traditional Roland Emmerich movie. Heavy on sfx and huge budget but it won't make a lick of sense..... hell, it already doesn't! :p This coming from someone who hasn't even seen "Green Lantern" yet
