Out filmmaker Gus Van Sant is in negotiations to direct The Time Traveler's Wife for New Line Cinema. The studio acquired Time in 2003 for Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston, Brad Grey, and Nick Wechsler to produce. New Line said Grey, who took over the reins of Paramount Studios on March 1, remains attached as a producer.
Written by Audrey Niffenegger, a writer and professor of book arts in Chicago, the book is a loose retelling of The Odyssey. The story centers on a man with a time-traveling gene that allows him to appear and reappear to his true love at different points in her life. Jeremy Leven adapted the book.
