Timeless movie

Fox’s next family-friendly hit could come from a former Pixar artist. The studio has just picked up the rights to Timeless, a three-book children’s series by Pixar alum Armand Baltazar. Carlos Saldanha (Rio) is attached to direct and Ridley Scott will produce.

The plot centers around a group of kids from different time periods — Victorian England, the 1920s, the 1980s, and the modern day — who band together. It’s described as being “in the vein of Avatar and Harry Potter,” so you know the studio has dollar signs in its eyes. Hit the jump for more details on the Timeless movie.
