Warner Bros. planning new Twilight Zone movie and have three big director’s in mind

Warner Bros are planning a new Twilight Zone movie which will touch on several themes from Rod Sterlings TV show which ran from the late 50’s to the early 60’s. If that news doesn’t float your boat, then at least one of the planned director’s will.

The new movie will be produced by Leonardo DiCaprio and his Appian Way company, with both George DiCaprio and Jennifer Killoran also producing. A script has been written by Rand Ravich and Jason Rothenberg, and the plan is to keep to a single storyline which will use several of the shows themes. The plot details are heavily guarded at this moment, but Warner’s ideas of who they would like to direct certainly aren’t!

Christopher Nolan is top of the list, and he would be an excellent choice, although it is thought he may tun it down due to its similarities with Inception. However, Nolan does have a good working relationship with Warners, so let’s prey he gets it.

Although, Rupert Wyatt, who directed the superb Rise of the Planet of the Apes, has been rumoured to be approached but it has not been made official as yet that Warners are looking for him right now. Again, Wyatt would be an excellent choice.

Michael Bay has also been approached, and this would be his first time working with Warners. Personally, I don’t feel he would be the best choice considering his output, and besides, his dream project, Pain and Gain, will more than likely get in the way. Pain and Gain is a black comedy about body builders.

And finally, Alfonso Cuaron is the final director to be on Warners list. He directed the fantastic sci-fi thriller Children of Men, another great choice. Cuaron is putting the finishing touches on his new film Gravity, and as yet has not announced what his next project will be.

More as it happens.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
