Retreat Director Set to Prove that Science Fiction is TimelessBack in 2010, Bill Kelly sold his sci-fi script Timeless, which at one point had Philip Noyce attached to direct. Four years later, the project is finally set to find its way in front of cameras, and a new director has been named. Read on!

Per Deadline, UK director Carl Tibbetts is now in the director’s chair, after recently making his feature debut with 2011’s Retreat.

The story tracks a twenty-something surfer who sets out to build a time-travel machine after his wife dies in an accident. He taps a young Harvard physicist to help make the impossible a reality.

New financier Nicolas Veinberg and Defiant Pictures have come aboard, and Sunil Perkash (Salt, Enchanted, Premonition) will produce alongside Veinberg and Lucas Jarach. Relativity Media, which made the initial spec deal, is circling for domestic distribution.

Shooting is set to begin next spring in Gran Canaria, Spain, with casting currently under way.
