Doug Liman’s teleportation thriller Jumper kind of came and went, and I can barely remember anything about it. There must be some fans of the Hayden Christensen starrer though, as a sequel is heading to YouTube Red which will be based on the third novel in the Jumper book series by Steven Gould.
In the upcoming YouTube Red Original Drama Series IMPULSE, 16-year-old Henry Coles is an outsider in her new town of Reston, New York. With a major chip on her shoulder and no friends, she remains withdrawn and isolated, but everything changes when a traumatic encounter with a classmate triggers something deep within Henry— unleashing a power she cannot control.
It seems that each episode will have a different writer and director, and that Liman will do the honours on one of the episodes. The series stars Maddie Hasson, Missi Pyle, Sarah Desjardins, Enuka Okuma, Craig Arnold and David James Elliott.
All ten episodes hit YouTube Red this summer. A teaser trailer is below.
