Director Gus Van Sant sees "The Time Traveler's Wife", a popular sci-fi romance by Audrey Niffenegger, in his future. He's in talks with New Line Cinema to turn the book into a movie.
The story centers on an adventurous librarian, Henry, who suffers from "chrono displacement" disorder, which causes him to involuntarily travel back and forth through time. Throughout his journeys, he's anchored by his relationship to his true love Clare, who lives a normal, sequential life and must await his unexpected appearances and disappearances.
