Time-travel tale in Warner Bros.' future


Warner Bros. has picked up the rights to the comic book miniseries "Hiding in Time," setting writer Beau Thorne to adapt. Dan Lin is producing via his Lin Pictures shingle.

The story is set in a future in which the witness protection program uses time travel to relocate high-value witnesses into the past. When the program is compromised, a government scientist must travel back through the greatest moments in history to help a thief rescue his old crew.

The comic, created by Christopher Long and illustrated by Ryan Winn, was published by Image Shadowline.

Jon Silk brought the comic into Lin Pictures and will serve as co-producer and oversee for Lin Pictures. Ray Miller at Archetype will co-produce, and the company's David Server at Archetype will associate produce.

Sarah Schechter oversees for Warners. (partialdiff)
