Hollywood legend Danny Trejo (“Machete”) and Joel McHale (“Community”) have officially joined the cast of a new sci-fi comedy, “Tim Travers & The Time Traveler’s Paradox.” The film will expand upon writer/director Stimson Snead’s award-winning short of the same name. Principal photography took place in and around Spokane Washington in late 2022.
In the film, Samuel Dunning (“Blue Bloods”) stars as a narcissistic, genius scientist, who is also very broke. He is on a mission to solve the paradox of what happens to your past self when a future version of you travels back in time. Work that doesn’t apparently pay well, but catches the eye of the leader of a mercenary army played by Trejo. McHale will portray a conspiracy theorist radio host, whose interviews with Dunning structure the narrative.
Guerrilla Rep Media is overseeing the marketing and distribution of “Tim Travers & The Time Traveler’s Paradox.” They are setting up to give buyers giving a sneak peek of the feature at the Berlinale’s European Film Market later this month. A short version of the film screened at more than 30 festivals in 2022. It has already won multiple awards at Boston SciFi, Nevermore Film Fest, and FilmQuest.
“I met Stimson years ago at the Seattle Film Summit, and I couldn’t be happier to join him for the culmination of our mutual efforts for his feature film directorial debut,” Guerilla Rep Media founding head Ben Yennie said. “All is progressing very well and we’re looking to give early sneak peeks to our buyer contacts at EFM this year.”
The film is produced by Kylie Walchuk and Casey Cowan. Executive produced by Yennie and Rich Cowan, with casting by Ronnie Yeskel.
We will keep you posted with updates about this project as they develop.
