Universal’s Rebooting Timecop

The Hollywood Reporter reports that Universal has begun developing a reboot of 1994's Timecop. The original is set in the future (2004!), when time travel exists, and the government uses cops, timecops, to regulate it. Jean-Claude Van Damme was that timecop, in what was the biggest starring role of his career, grossing over $100 million worldwide. The studio is currently looking for writers and says that Van Damme is not involved. But, come on, he'll be involved, even if only to show some young upstart how to properly execute one of his special kicks
