Bleeding Cool has revealed details about Almanac, the Michael Bay-produced found-footage time travel film. And yes, there's a sports almanac in it just like Back to the Future Part II. The story involves a high school kid named David (a nerd) trying to woo Jessie (a popular girl) by winning the science fair. The plot synopsis continues:
Sounds more than a little derivative, but I guess it's all in the execution. On a side note, why doesn't anyone use time travel to go back into the past so they can sell all of their now-worthless 90's comics during the height of the speculator boom?
Almanac was written by first-time screenwriters Andrew Stark and Jason Pagan, and will be helmed by first-time director Dean Israelite. It's still being fast-tracked into production and may even be out by winter 2013. The creative team has their work cut out for them.
