Spike Lee is Time Travelling

SpikeLee.jpgSpike Lee is to make a film based on Ronald Mallett's memoirs, Time Traveler: A Scientist's Personal Mission to Make Time Travel a Reality. Mallett was one of the first African Americans to gain a Ph.D in theoretical physics, and tried to use his knowledge to save his father

Spike Lee will direct and co-write the film of the memoirs. His most recent film being Miracle at St Annas. Time Traveler sounds like a pretty interesting premise.

Time Traveler: A Scientist's Personal Mission to Make Time Travel a Reality, was co-written by the man himself Ronald Mallett. Having gained a PHD in theoretical physics, he tried to develop a time machine so that he could go back in time and stop his father from dying. HIs father died of a heart attack aged 33, and Mallett's idea from when he was young was to go back and tell him not to smoke.

Coming Soon say Spike Lee has aquired the rights, and will make the film through his production company Forty Acres & A Mule Filmworks. He's also shortening the title to Time Traveler, wise man. It sounds like an interesting film, assuming they can make the theory of relativity and closed timelike curves exciting. Ah the things I could do with a time machine...
