Here’s a game that kids from 8 to 80 love to play!
You are a big-time, hot shot Hollywood movie producer. For your next big project, you have just purchased a nifty little script called Time Chasers by David Giancola. Now you get to decide:
- who will direct it
- who will star in it
- what script/story changes would you insist on
- who will rewrite it
- do you change the tile
- do you envision it as a sci-fi movie, a rom-com, a comedy, an adventure movie, a musical, a scathing social satire . . .
For purposes of the game, we assume that Mr. Giancola’s film does not exist, so this is not a remake, but the world’s very first look at the Time Chasers saga. You can choose to make your version of Time Chasers any time from 1994 (when the version we know debuted) to today. The cast you choose must all be from the same era; for example, if you decide to make your TC movie in 1999 with Harrison Ford as your star, don’t make Lady Gaga your co-star (she would have been unknown then) or Alfred Hitchcock your director (he was an ex-director by that time).
The four main roles you should cast are:
Nick Miller – our hero
Lisa Henson – local reporter/love interest
J.K. Robertosn – boo! hiss!
Matthew Paul – his flunky
Feel free to add other cast members as you see fit.
There’s a decent story to be found in that Time Chasers script. Who among us could best bring this classic tale to life on the silver screen?
