Warner Bros looking to send a director to The Twilight Zone

A new Twilight Zone movie based on the Rod Sterling TV show has been in the works for a while. The project has now stepped up a gear after it was reported that Warner Bros are pursuing a certain someone to take on the task of directing.

The names on their shortlist suggest that they aren’t just after anyone either, with Christopher Nolan, Alfonso Cuaron, Michael Bay and Rupert Wyatt all being considered. Such high profile directors suggest that Warner means serious business and could be looking at another potential franchise.

A Twilight Zone movie was previously released back in 1983, which had four directors, such as John Landis and Steven Spielberg, handling their own separate segments. While it would be great to have all the directors on Warner’s list working together, the new one will instead be one story overseen by one director. There is currently no information on stars and plot details, except that it will include a number of themes from the original TV series.

Nolan already has had pretty good relationship with Warner, working on three Batman films and Inception. Wyatt is also being talked about after his recent success with Rise of the Planet of the Apes

Written by Rand Ravich and Jason Rothenberg, the film will be produced by Leonardo DiCaprio’s production company Appian Way.
