Always loved that movie, love the work of Jerry Bruckheimer, Tony Scott (all of his movies and collaboration with Denzel Washington).
So this spec script is just my modest way of saying thank you (All IPs belong to the rightsholders).
WORKING TITLE: The DEJAVU Project (TV version)
Videogames consultant joins hands with a Virtual Reality private military technology firm to come back in time, save the lives of citizens, and uncover a plot.
Spec Script for TV version of the DEJA VU (2006) movie.
In this show, we follow a regular guy Andy who joins hands with an Augmented and Virtual Reality private military technology firm that managed to find a way to look into the past. Andy will have to come back in time as a "Runner" to save the lives of citizens and uncover a plot.
RAKE TECH hires Andy and sends him to a secret Virtual Reality Lab. He joins a group of scientists and field agents to fight crime by using the DEJA VU technology that allows them to look into the past, exactly 14 days back in time. He has to train and help solve cases of terrorism and accidents. Everything starts with quick onboarding and intro into what he has to go through. Aria, his counterpart, and Andy are being sent to Portugal, Lisbon 14 days in the past. They need to help stop the accident at the train station. They can't stop the derailment, but they can scare off the people from the platform.
Things get messy when they come back in to present. Something changed, lives have been saved, but a friend of Andy's missing as if she never existed. This makes Andy nervous. Aria holds another secret and the time travel on another 24-hour training mission to Paris that begins for both of them with a surprise visit by the shadow organization that has similar technology, or so it seems. Aria disappears. Andy is all alone now in Paris.
