- by admin
An old man, a young woman and a man in a time machine are all at the center of the new Time Machine movie, which hits theaters March 23.
The movie centers on two young people in their 20s who have a time-traveling experience, and they become entangled in a mystery involving a time travel machine.
The movie is based on a novel by science fiction author Chuck Palahniuk, but it is the first time Palahnik has directed a feature film, according to Deadline.
Palahniak’s latest book, The Crying of Lot 49, has grossed $1.6 billion worldwide, including $600 million in U.S. box office, according the New York Times.
Palahniek is repped by WME and attorney Daniel Weitz.
The film’s producers also recently announced that a sequel to Palahaniuk’s Time Machine was in development and that they had a script in place for a third installment.
The Time Machine franchise, which was first published in 1963, has sold more than 3.5 billion copies worldwide and grossed more than $1 billion at the worldwide box office.
The original trilogy was based on the science fiction novel by Palahnyk.
The franchise was re-launched in 2006 as The Time Machine, and in 2018, it was rebooted as The Lost City of Z, which also starred Anthony Hopkins.
Palay is also repped in the case of The Time Lord, The Time of the Doctor, The Doctor Strange, The Night of the Hunter, The Woman in Black and The Time Monster.
