Walt Disney Pictures is developing a time-travel themed feature entitled Time Zones. The Hollywood Reporter has the first word of the project and the news that Marc Guggenheim will provide the screenplay.
The pitch for the project is that a global event has separated the Earth’s geography into different time periods, meaning that traveling between countries can actually mean traveling between centuries, reaching the intended location but in a different era. The plot then deals with a man who must work with his daughter to attempt a journey to the past in order to save his wife.
Guggenheim most recently scripted Green Lantern for Warner Bros. and is set to tackle another DC Comics property with The Flash. On Time Zones, he’ll be working with producer Mark Gordon who, in addition to a large amount of television work, produced this year’s Source Code, which also dealt with time travel.
