New Line has signed Robert Schwentke (Flightplan) to direct The Time Traveler's Wife, and the script has been adapted by Jeremy Leven and Bruce Joel Rubin. Rubin was responsible for writing Ghost, one of the highest-grossing romance films of all time. New Line is probably hoping to recreate a little of that magic for this romantic flick. Monika Bartyzel let us know about some rewrites that took place back in January, which usually is not an encouraging sign. But as Monika pointed out, the project has been in development since 2003, so rewrites are probably par for the course by now. Plus, fans of the novel are likely relieved to know that the studio isn't rushing to adapt the challenging novel -- between jumping timelines, characters and events, it could not have been an easy script to write. It looks like the wrinkles have finally been worked out, and the production is ready to start shooting in Toronto this September.
