When the new year hit, and the strike continued, the interim agreements started to get made. Tom Cruise and Paula Wagner's United Artists made one with the WGA, and now The Hollywood Reporter has listed the first deal to be signed since that agreement was reached. UA has picked up the remake rights to the Spanish film Los Cronocrimenes. Scribe Steven Zaillian, who won an Oscar for his work on Schindler's List, is set to produce the feature, although sources say that he probably won't be writing it -- just overseeing, and possibly preparing the outline.

Now, the film, which translates into Timecrimes, was written and directed by Nacho Vigalondo, and THR describes it as "a jigsaw-style thriller about a man who accidentally travels back in time one hour and finds himself facing multiple dangers, including his own doppelganger." You'd think that between old-school challenges like dinos and samurai, and the butterfly effect, bigger jumps would be riskier, but I guess that's not the case! If the flick doesn't sound familiar, that's because it's all sorts of new. Cronocrimenes is scheduled to play at Sundance, and will get North American distribution by Magnolia.
