Go back and change one thing, and you change everything. Thus is the basic definition of The Butterfly Effect, which was pulled off with varying degrees of success in the 2004 film of the same name. Not content with just leaving things be, it’s time once again for change.
According to Variety, FilmEngine and Benderspink are teaming to reboot The Butterfly Effect with original writer-director Eric Bress on board to pen the new script. No director is yet attached.
The original sci-fi thriller, starring Ashton Kutcher and Amy Smart, was a solid performer for New Line with a worldwide box office of $96 million on a budget of $13 million along with a pair of direct-to-DVD sequels.
Bress and J. Mackeye Gruber co-directed and co-wrote the original. Kutcher portrayed a character who had the ability to travel back in time and change the present by changing what he had done in his past — but found that changing several childhood traumas created unintended consequences.
