The Twilight Zone Movie In the Works

October 17, 2011 By Mike B

The Twilight Zone, which is not to be confused with the Twilight “saga” (for in the Twilight Zone, Twilight would probably be…good), will grace the silver-screen once again. Yes, Rod Serling’s brilliant series, and probably one of the greatest TV shows of all time, will resurface as a film.

The script was written by Matt Reeves, known for Cloverfield and Let Me In, and Leonardo DiCaprio is producing. Reeves will also take the reins as director because all of the A-list directors that were approached, Christopher Nolan, Michael Bay and Alfonso Cuaron, have their plates full. Thank God Michael Bay has his plate full.

This time around, the Twilight Zone movie will not be an anthology film like the original 1983  project. It will be a single, feature-length story told in the style of the original classic Sci-Fi/Horror series. Reeves will also be working on another remake: John Carpenter’s They Live. Yes, remakes galore. As long as they’re good—it’s the bad remakes that become a nuisance.

There’s no word on which will get going full-speed first. Warner Bros. is hoping to enter production of the Twilight Zone as early as next summer.
