Unfolding across multiple centuries and continents, this breathtaking epic time travels to 18th century India and beyond to tell a sweeping saga of treachery, betrayal, and love that defies all boundaries. Josh Hartnett stars as present-day marine archaeologist Jay Fennel who, following a diving accident while rescuing his wife, is left brain-dead. In his comatose dream state, Fennel is transported to India circa 1778, where a young British captain (also played by Hartnett) embarks on a life-threatening mission and a steamy romance with a female warrior (Bipasha Basu).
“Time Traveller” was shot in Queensland Australia, India and in the UK at Pinewood Studios and England’s south coast in Portland, Dorset. Produced by Paul Breuls, the creative talent responsible for the magnificent look of“Time Traveller” include Academy Award-wining production designer Luciana Arrighi, cinematographer Ben Nott and visual effects producer Alan Church.
Roland Joffé was inspired to make “Time Traveller” after visiting India. He says: “Flying back from India, I began to formulate a story about the way we relate to our past and how we relate to time. quantum physics has totally rediscovered the universe and who and what we are and what the world is. I believe at some stage in the future, quantum physics will utterly alter our political, spiritual and material lives, probably for the better”
