Ethan Hawke - Ethan Hawke Joins Thriller Predestination

Ethan Hawke is to star as a time-travelling crime fighter in 'Predestination'.

The 'Dead Poets Society' actor will portray a government agent who is sent out on a number of time-travel missions in order to stop future killers, and the action-thriller movie will see him reunite with director brothers Michael and Peter Spierig for the first time since 2009 sci-fi horror 'Daybreakers'.

The Spierig brothers - who have penned the screenplay for the motion picture - are quoted by Variety as saying: '''Predestination' is based on the classic Robert A. Heinlein short story 'All you Zombies'. No, it's not a zombie flick but it's one of our favorite short stories and is unlike anything you've ever read before.

''The short is on many sci-fi lists as one of the greatest short stories of all time, and the mother of all time paradox tales. Heinlein is considered one of the great science fiction masters alongside Phillip K. Dick, Isaac Asimov, and Arthur C. Clarke.''

The sibling duo are also in line to produce the movie, which is due to start filming in Australia early next year.

Ethan is to star alongside Colin Farrell, Jessica Biel and Kate Beckinsale as a scientist in the remake of 1990 movie 'Total Recall' later this year.
