Marc Forster For The Runner

Forster210Time travel seems very much in vogue at the moment. With Jack Gyllenhaal set mess with the space-time continuum in the forthcoming Source Code, Marc Forster is set to tinker with the timeline in The Runner.

Set in the post-apocalyptic world of 2027 where the everything been reduced to smoking rubble, a group of survivors have figured out a way to send someone back through time to prevent the disaster from happening. But the person who volunteers for the mission has a hidden agenda – he’s going to try to save the love of his life.

It’s written by Dave Andron who’s mainly known for his TV credits including a reboot of Knight Rider and hit series Justified and was picked up by Disney and Brian Grazer’s Imagine Entertainment. They’re hoping that Forster, best known for Quantum Of Solace and Monster’s Ball and who’s currently editing Machine Gun Preacher, will accept the job behind the camera.
