Thirteenth Hour sounds familiar
The announcement of the purchase of the novel Thirteenth Hour for adaptation into a film flashed some recognition with me when I read the blurb. The story is about a man who is accused of murdering his wife and is given the chance to travel back in time in one hour increments in order to try to save his wife's life.
As he goes back for each hour he puts together clues for who killed her and why. When I read that there were a number of films that popped up in my mind.
There's Timecrimes (Los Cronocrímenes) (Filmstalker review), Memento and Déjà Vu (Filmstalker review) (and on Blu-ray) spring instantly to mind, but I'm sure there's more.
The novel The Thieves of Heaven is yet to be completed by Richard Doetsch and the producer of the film, Michael De Luca, says through Variety of the story that...
“It has a great cinematic structure that unfolds in reverse”
It's an interesting concept, and one that's been much visited. I'd be interested to hear from anyone that's read the novel and can reveal if it does have something different to it than these stories.
