Get ready for more shocking news! We’ve just learned that a 2004 sci-fi psychological thriller The Butterfly Effect
is getting a reboot! Why? We have no idea.
But what we do know is that FilmEngine and New Line-based BenderSpink are behind the upcoming project, and that original writer and director Eric Bress
is on board to pen the new script.
At this moment still nothing about the possible director, but everything else is pretty much the same.
Beside Bress, who’s in charge for a new story, the rest of The Butterfly Effect team will include producers Anthony Rhulen, Chris Bender and JC Spink, while Paul Rock of Skyrock is on board to exec produce the project.
For those unfamiliar with the original movie, it starred Ashton Kutcher and Amy Smart in the leading roles, and revolved around young man who blocks out harmful memories of significant events of his life. As he grows up, he finds a way to remember these lost memories and a supernatural way to alter his life.
The film received a poor critical reception, but was nevertheless a commercial success – it grossed $96 million on a budget of $13 million along with a pair of direct-to-DVD sequels.
So, anyone interested in this reboot?
Let us know, and stay tuned for more updates!
