Some of you may have seen 2008's critically divisive Jumper, a Heroes-esque movie with Hayden Christensen and Jamie Bell as superpowered teleporters jumping through time and space. Eight years later, director Doug Liman — now better known for Edge of Tomorrow and The Bourne Identity — is whipping up a sequel. Check out the details after the, uh... jump.

The action will follow the teenage offspring of Hayden Christensen and Rachel Bilson's characters in the original movie in an action series for YouTube Red. The Wrap reports that the new series will be taken from Steven Gould's third novel in the Jumper series, Impulse:
'Impulse' features a rebellious 16-year-old girl, who has always felt different from her peers and has longed to escape from her seemingly quaint small town. When a local drug dealer attempts to assault her, she discovers her extraordinary ability to teleport. This newfound power confirms her conviction that she really is different from everybody else, but it now makes her the focus of those who want to control her.
Lost's Jeff Lieber will be working with Liman to come up with the pilot for the series as part of Youtube Red's new wave of content, including the Dwayne Johnson-produced time travel show Lifeline. Does the world need more Jumper...and will you be watching?
