Pineapple Express director tackles time travel

Pineapple Express and Your Highness director David Gordon Green is up for the challenge of tackling one of the odder film premises on the horizon.

To be adapted from the Even Mandery novel, Q tells the story of a young man visited by his future self on his wedding day who warns him not to marry his fiancée, Q. He listens. Cue (sorry) a flux of future selves appearing to him and telling him what to do next.

Sound odd? You’d be right in thinking so. Columbia Pictures are in line to produce the romantic flick, with no cast yet attached. Judging by his previous outings, James Franco will be top of his list.

David Gordon Green's next, The Sitter , starring Jonah Hill and Sam Rockwell, opens 22 June 2012.
