Christopher Webster [Celluloid 08.17.10] United Kingdom post apocalyptic movie news scifi



Writer/director Michael Bartlett has sent over some new concept art and info on the whereabouts of Timeless, his post-apocalyptic time travel thriller that's had us chomping at the bit for half a year already.

Word is that the script (our review here) has been around all the top sales agents in Hollywood (which Bartlett attributes to the "legendary exec," Ruth Vitale). In order to pitch a more 'commercial' project the vision had to be expanded - hence the new artwork. Word is that all the work was worth it though as Timeless is being described by a lot of studios and sales agents as "Looper meets Source Code."

Bartlett goes on to explain how, in many ways, he is facing the same problems that Rian Johnson was two years ago with "Looper." He had a great script, but because Joseph Gordon-Levitt was not that well known, he had to wait until Inception was released before his film finally became fully financed. Similarly, Bartlett's lead, Robert Kazinsky, won't see his breakthrough movies in the USA released for the next few years, so he has two choices: either shoot the film at a much smaller budget, or wait a few years and make the movie he wants with the people he wants. I have a feeling Bartlett's not quite willing to let his passion project fall into the wrong hands...

Synopsis:
Set in a bleak and dystopian future, TIMELESS tells the story of a hit-man named Warren who has been taken under the wing of a ruthless business man, Sloane. Warren's world changes forever when Sloane forces him to break one of his crucial rules. He soon finds himself plunged into a world where all is not what it seems.

When he suddenly has the power to travel back in time, Warren tries to right the wrongs of the past, but soon faces a terrible conundrum. Is he truly traveling in time, or is he simply losing his mind?

TIMELESS is a powerful story of lost love, redemption and one man's addiction to saving his soul-mate ... from himself.

This project will not get made. I'm from the future and I know. In 2012, Bartlett still hasn't made another movie since Zombie Diaries and flips burgers for a living

Imagine a little dog humping your leg that won't leave you alone. Don't get on his bad side or he'll start stalking you. He's a troll.

What is funny is that this artwork isn't even new! It was posted on Bartlet's own website over a year ago! More fool QuietEarth for posting this news story where Bartlet just shamelessly namedrops YET AGAIN!

Really? I don't see the art work on his website - only the poster to the film. The concept art - as far as I can tell - is brand new. It looks awesome too. A bit bladerunner-ish, but still cool.

Or...

Imagine a little dog humping a gorgeous blonds leg while a beautiful red head & Korean girl kiss each other passionately nearby. The blond is unsure about the sensation the little dog is giving her. She never even considered having sex with a dog before but the dog's fur rubbing against her silky skin feels really good. Also like her mother used to say,
"A hard dog is good to find." hehehe

I think its gonna be a good film.
