Oh for the love of…

The TV adaptation of the fantastic – but awesome – book and movie (above, starring Malcolm McDowell and David Warner) of the same name that saw Jack the Ripper find a time machine and travel through time murdering people, all the time chased by HG Wells, has been cancelled before it even got of the ground.

And frankly we’re miffed because we were really looking forward to this.

Ah, what could have been.

Logline: Based on the novel Time After Time, written by Karl Alexander, the drama uses the 1979 novel and movie as a starting point and chronicles the epic adventures of young H.G. Wells (Freddie Stroma, UnREAL) and his time machine.
Cast: Freddie Stroma (UnREAL), Josh Bowman (Revenge), Genesis Rodriguez, Regina Taylor, Vanessa Anders, Jordin Sparks
Team: W/EP Kevin Williamson; EP/D Marcos Siega
Studio: Warner Bros. Television, Outerbanks
Location: New York

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
