New Regency has acquired the rights to Isaac Asimov’s time travel novel The End of Eternity, according to Variety. The futuristic tale describes humanity as being controlled by a ruling class called The Eternals, members of which can manipulate time to alter history and prevent disasters or wipe out undesirables. Eternals had the power of life and death not only over every human being but over the very centuries into which they were born. One Eternal named Andrew Harlan, breaks a cardinal rule by falling in love with a woman. And so he begins to plan his escape. A plan that changed his own past, and threatens Eternity itself.
The End of Eternity will be distributed through Fox.
