Warner Bros. has picked up the Image Shadowline comic book series “Hiding in Time” for Dan Lin to produce, reports Variety.
Beau Thorne (upcoming Max Payne) will tackle the Christopher Long-created property, in which the Witness Protection Program uses time travel to relocate high-profile witnesses. When the program is compromised, a government scientist must travel back through the greatest moments in history to help a master thief rescue his old crew from the assassins sent back by their former employer.
Lin Pictures will produce the film, with Jon Silk, who brought the project into the company, serving as co-producer.
Lin is executive producing Terminator Salvation, the Robert Rodriguez-directed Shorts and the Ricky Gervais comedy This Side of the Truth. He’s also producing Justice League for WB and Richard Kelly-directed Cameron Diaz thriller The Box.
