JORDAN PEELE’S ‘THE TWILIGHT ZONE’ MOVING FORWARD





After Get Out, I’m interested in anything that its hugely talented writer and director Jordan Peele is doing, and one of these is a new version of The Twilight Zone. I love the original 1959-64 series [not so hot on the 1980’s revival though], but I reckon that Peele can pull of something that does its classic predecessor justice. It’s going to be on CBS All Access with Simon Kinberg and Marco Ramirez also serving as executive producers and collaborating on the pilot episode. And today an update on the series has come via the channel’s EVP Original Content Julie McNamara.

“We have a room, we have a first season of concepts, outlines, scripts — various stages of all these things — of that 10 eps a season. We are well on our way, and we are going to start production in the next couple of months. From a production standpoint Greg Yaitanes is overseeing that continuity”.

Before then though, Jordan Peele has something he calls a “psychological social horror thriller” coming out called Us, and it began shooting last week. Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, Elisabeth Moss, and Tim Heidecker star in the film, which is set to be released on March 15, 2019.

I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
