The Butterfly Effect to be revived

Ashton Kutcher's drama The Butterfly Effect is winging its way back to cinemas in a reboot less than 10 years after its original release.

The 2004 film, which marked one of Kutcher's first drama roles, was mauled by critics but was a commercial success, garnering around $96 million at the worldwide box office.


Film bosses are now using a new cast to revive the movie, about a troubled college student who finds he can alter his past using time travel.


Eric Bress, who co-wrote and co-directed the original film, is back on board to pen the script for the reboot, reports Variety.com.


The original film spawned two less successful follow-ups, 2006's The Butterfly Effect 2 and The Butterfly Effect 3: Revelations in 2009.
