Warner Bros. Starting ‘World War X’

ALT“A man is recruited by a team of government agents to stop a terrorist from the future who is using time travel to reshape history.”  No, its not the latest Phillip K. Dick adaptation – it’s the plot of the script Warner Bros. just bought, Colin Trevorrow’s “World War X.”  That’s not quite enough information to develop an opinion of this project at such an early stage of development – especially since relative newcomer Trevorrow has written little of note – but the plot and title sound intriguing enough!  We’ll keep an eye on this one.

The studio plans to develop Trevorrow’s script with Silver Pictures (the same company that is producing the Sherlock Holmes sequel), a division of Warner Bros.  Joel Silver (who has produced almost 100 films) and Andrew Rona have already signed on to produce, along with exec producers Chris Bender, JC Spink, Alex Heineman, and Jake Weiner.
