    It seems possible. The director of "Back to the Future," Robert Zemeckis could be setting up an adaptation of the Ken Grimwood novel Replay as his another project that sees his return into the live-action genre. Last week, we learnt that Zemeckis was also rumored for another live-action feature, Flight, with Denzel Washington attached to star.

    According to Vulture (New York Magazine) and Coming Soon, the novel which is released in the year 1988 is yet another time travelling movie, described as:

    "A time-travel classic in the tradition of Jack Finney's "Time and Again", Ken Grimwood's acclaimed novel "Replay" asks the provocative question: "What if you could live your life over again, knowing the mistakes you'd made before?" Forty-three-year-old Jeff Winston gets several chances to do just that. Trapped in a tepid marriage and a ad ead-end job, he dies in 1988 and wakes up to find himself in 1963, at the age of eighteen, staring at his dorm room walls at Emory University. It's all the same... but different: Jeff knows what the future holds. He knows who will win every World Series... every Kentucky Derby... even how to win on Wall Street. The one thing he doesn't know is: Why has he been chosen to replay his life? And how many times must he win - and lose - everything he loves?"

    The screenplay, drafted by Jason Smilovic, made the 2010 "black list" of unproduced projects, Zemeckis' schedule is currently quite hectic considering he has several projects at the moment including the already mentioned "Flight", another time-travel film "Timeless", a sequel to "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" and CGI hybrid "How to Survive a Garden Gnome Attack."
