Mumbai: CBS Films has acquired feature film rights to Tamara Ireland Stone’s debut novel Time Between Us and set Robin Schorr to produce through her RCR Pictures banner.
Young adult tome follows a teenage boy who was born with the gift and the curse of being a time-traveler. After making a disastrous mistake, he’s forced to travel from 2012 to 1995, where he falls in love with a 16-year-old girl from Illinois who’s never had the freedom to go anywhere. While he can take her anywhere in the world at the speed of thought, the two opposites must conquer obstacles of reality and time to find happiness.
Described as being in the vein of The Notebook, the tale features a contained set of rules and parameters for the inherent obstacles of time travel.
Originally titled Mobius, Stone’s book sold to Disney/Hyperion for six figures in March. Schorr will produce, while RCR exec Jenna Glazier will co-produce. CBS Films’ Maria Faillace will oversee the project for the studio.
