Meanwhile, HBO’s The Time Traveler’s Wife is moving along with Rose Leslie and Theo James.
Leslie is best known to audiences for her role on Game of Thrones, so this marks a return to the premium cabler.
James is best known for his role in the Divergent movie series.
Based on Audrey Niffenegger’s novel of the same name, the series tells the story of Clare (Leslie) and Henry (James), and a marriage with a problem — time travel.
Clare is described as fiery, clever and unstoppable – and for most of her life she’s had an amazing secret.
Since she was six years old Clare has had an imaginary friend: a kind and funny man, sometimes old, sometimes young, who appears in the woods behind her house and tells her tales of the future.
Visits from the mysterious Henry are the bright spots in the tedium of her childhood.
As the years pass, and she grows into a beautiful young woman, she starts to realize her friend is not imaginary – he’s a time traveler, visiting from the future. And he’s not just from any old future – he’s from her future.
Clare has a literal date with destiny. One day she’s going to meet a young man called Henry DeTamble – whom she’ll know very well but who won’t recognize her at all – and she will become the time traveler’s wife.
