The film adaptation of E.C Tubbs’ novel was announced at the Berlin Film Festival. 

Production on the sci-fi thriller 57 Seconds, starring Morgan Freeman and Josh Hutcherson, will begin in Louisiana in April.

The Curmudgeon Films and Revelations Entertainment production is based on E.C Tubbs’ novel; Macon Blair adapted the screenplay.

Rusty Cundieff (Fear of a Black Hat) is set to direct the feature centred on tech blogger Franklin Fausti (Hutcherson) who lands a career-changing interview with the visionary technology guru Anton Burrell (Freeman).

After thwarting an attack against Burrell, Franklin picks up a mysterious ring that Burrell has dropped that allows its possessor to travel 57 seconds into the past. Driven by revenge and with Burrell's support, Franklin uses the ring to dismantle the pharmaceutical company responsible for his sister's death. But he soon gets entangled in a treacherous and brutal chain of events.
