Walt Disney Pictures has acquired the rights to "The Runner," as scifi movie that is being scribed by Dave Andron (The recent Knight Rider series, Justified) and possibly directed by Marc Foster.
The premise: In the year 2027, Earth's surface has been rendered uninhabitable due to a devastating attack. A group of survivors living in the Rocky Mountains have discovered a way to send a man back in time. While the volunteer departs under the guise of trying to stop the devastating attack, he has an ulterior motive: to save the love of his life.
Imagine Entertainment's Brian Grazer is said to be producing it along with Forster's Apparatus Entertainment partner Brad Simpson.
