Boundless Pictures Options 'Timeless' Script From 'Zombie Diaries' Writer (Exclusive)

"The Zombie Diaries" writer-director Michael Bartlett penned the script about a man who is addicted to a drug that allows him to time travel.

Boundless Pictures has optioned the script for Timeless, written by Zombie Diaries trilogy writer-director Michael Bartlett, The Hollywood Reporter has learned exclusively.

The story is set in London in a dystopian future where a hit man is fatally addicted to a street drug that allows him to time travel. He works for a crime boss who makes him perform hits throughout time in hopes of traveling back to right the one wrong that haunts him: his inability to save the life of his first love.

Boundless Pictures was founded in 2008 by Penn and Brandon Burrows. The L.A. and New York-based production company recently announced the financing of diamond-heist action film Foolproof and had Wesley SnipesGallowwalkers go to Lionsgate for domestic summer release.

Bartlett, along with Kevin Gates, co-wrote and co-directed the 2006 British indie The Zombie Diaries. Bartlett is repped by Henraux Management.
