Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi will write and direct the pilot for Apple TV's reboot of Time Bandits, according to Deadline.
The filmmaker has signed on for just the pilot, though the reboot of the 1981 Terry Gilliam surreal sci-fi film could go to series. Time Bandits focuses on the adventures of a young boy who meets a crew of fantasy dwarves who pilot a time-traveling ship to steal treasure from different ages.
In addition to writing, directing, and producing numerous films, Waititi will also direct an episode of Diseny+'s The Mandalorian Star Wars series.
No projected premiere date for Time Bandits has been announced.
