Time and Again

We're in an era of nostalgia at the movies in which many recently successful films have taken us back in time and lovingly recreated an age long past. (See: Midnight in Paris, Hugo, The Artist, etc.) Hollywood's fascination with the past continues, as Variety reports that The Bourne Identity helmer Doug Liman is stepping behind the camera for a time traveling love story called Time and Again. Based on Jack Finney's novel, the story follows an illustrator who mysteriously travels back to 1882 New York and is forced to choose which life he wants to lead: his old life where he belongs, or this new one in which he's found love.

This project has been kicking around Tinseltown for years now, as Robert Redford originally tried to get it off the ground as a starring vehicle for himself in the mid-90s. There was also an attempt to turn it into a network miniseries, but those plans fell through as well. Now it falls in Liman's capable hands, who has handled not only love stories before, but science fiction, too. He's gearing up for the Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt pic All You Need Is Kill, and he directed the regrettable Jumper with Hayden Christensen. I'm taking bets right now on whether or not Rachel McAdams will play the love interest, since time traveling romances seem to be a subgenre that she dominates. Interested?

It's not a comedy, as stated in this headline.
