Kevin Macdonald to bring The End of Eternity

Kevin Macdonald has made a deal with New Regency to develop and direct The End of Eternity, the 1955 Isaac Asimov novel according to Variety.

The Eternity of the title is an organization and a place which exists outside time. It is staffed by humans (usually male) called Eternals who are recruited from different eras of human history commencing with the twenty-seventh century. The Eternals are capable of traveling “upwhen” and “downwhen” within Eternity and entering the conventional temporal world at almost any point of their choice, apart from a section of the far future which they cannot enter. Collectively they form a corps of Platonic guardians who carry out carefully calculated and planned strategic minimum actions, called Reality Changes, within the temporal world in order to minimise human suffering as integrated over the whole of (future) human history.

It sounds like major league sci-fi and I think I'll be having a read of it when I can.

The director is following up the newspaper drama "State of Play" with "Eagle of the Ninth," a second-century Roman military drama for Focus Features
