Timecop 2 is currently in development with filming having commenced in spring 2002. Steve Boyum is attached to direct it, with Jason Scott Lee starring in the film after Van Damme reportedly turned the project down. Universal Pictures are the studio attached, who were also the distributors for its predecessor Timecop. With this in mind it's likely that Timecop 2 will get a theatrical release.
Writing for the project is recently acclaimed screenwriter Gary Scott Thompson and producing is Lawrence Gordon whose credits range from The Warriors to blockbusters like Predator, Die Hard, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, and the 1997 Timecop TV series. Producing will be Dark Horse Entertainment and starring will be Thomas Ian Griffith (John Carpenter's Vampires) and Steve Van Wormer (Bubble Boy). Gary Scott Thompson (writer of The Fast and the Furious) is also rumoured to be appearing in a cameo.
