The Butterfly Effect Reboot in the Works

From Collider:

After six years on That ’70s Show, Ashton Kutcher made a big push for dramatic work with The Butterfly Effect. Kutcher played a troubled soul who, by reading pages from his adolescent journal, could travel back in time and change his past. But as the tagline warns, “Change One Thing, Change Everything.” It was a solid hit, grossing nearly $100 million worldwide, and did well enough on home video to motivate two direct-to-DVD sequels. The Butterfly Effect caught on with an audience (7.7 on IMDB) that liked it much more than the critics did (33% on Rotten Tomatoes).

We are coming up on the 10-year anniversary of the 2004 release. You know what that means: Time for a reboot! FilmEngine and Benderspink are developing a Butterfly Effect remake.

Meh...I can't say I'm that interested. I didn't think the first movie was all that great (and we won't even talk about those direct-to-DVD sequels), and I can't see a reason for a reboot, especially with the same person writing the script.

I really liked it. It was one of Ashton's best performances (may not be saying much but he was good in it). I really liked the true ending to the film. How throughout the film hints are dropped about how it will end but I still was left shocked at what happened.
