Do you remember Jumper? That 2008 science fiction film that was all about teleporting? Had the Star Wars prequels' Hayden Christensen, Fantastic Four's Jamie Bell and Samuel L Jackson in it? Gets shown on Film4 quite a bit?

It wasn't very well-received so we're not surprised (even though it made quite a bit of money), but someone out there thinks it's worthy of another shot.

That someone is actually Jamie Bell himself.

According to Deadline, Bell is developing a TV reboot of the property with Doctor Who writer and director Julian Simpson.

Lionsgate, New Regency and StudioCanal have worked out a distribution deal to teleport the show into existence, and Bell might actually reprise his role as Griffin O'Connor.

We're not sure whether the TV series would work as the sequel the film was desperate to set up, a re-do of the film and then a sequel, or something different entirely.

But there's a fair bit to work with, believe it or not. The first Jumper novel came out in 1992, and there have been a handful of sequels and short stories over the years.

One of those sequels, the novel Impulse, was announced last year as being adapted for YouTube Red, although we've not heard much on that project since then.

All in all, it's a very exciting time to be a Jumper fan. Who'd have thought it, eh?

Hopefully, they would follow the book more closely

Jamie Bell is a more interesting actor and Griff was a more interesting character.
Let's see what the final result looks like.

Jamie Bell was the best part of that movie, tbh. Diane Lane was competent, but Jamie Bell was both hot and talented in that movie. I'd watch the television adaptation, sure.
