Spike Lee Helming Time Traveler


Spike Lee will co-write and direct Time Traveler, a feature adaptation of a memoir by Ronald Mallett, one of the nation’s first African-Americans to earn a Ph.D in theoretical physics.

Variety says Lee has acquired “Time Traveler: A Scientist’s Personal Mission to Make Time Travel a Reality” and set up the project through his Forty Acres & A Mule Filmworks.

Mallett, who wrote the book with Bruce Henderson, recounts his rise from poverty to a distinguished academic and scientific career, and it lays out the technical specs for what Mallett envisions as a workable time machine. Developing a time machine became an obsession for Mallett from the age of 10 after his father’s death. His goal was to travel back in time to save his father.
