The Spierig Brothers have a distinctly skewed take on genre film – take their ‘vampires won’ film Daybreakers – and they make smart, unique entertainments.
It is only natural, then, that they’d adapt the ultimate time travel short story – Robert A. Heinlein’s All You Zombies – for film. It’s one of the trickiest time travel/paradox stories ever written and they persuaded Ethan Hawke (who also starred in Daybreakers) to take the lead role, a Temporal Agent who seems more suited to his job than anyone else.
Predestination comes to home video on February 10th. Extras include a ten-part making of documentary and a blooper reel. For further details – and a look at the trailer – follow the jump.
