news twilight zone movie

You’re traveling through another dimension, a dimension of sight and sound but also of mind; a journey into a wondrous land where a director known for two mediocre science fiction films is given the keys to a classic series- his next stop, The Twilight Zone!

That’s right, The Twilight Zone is getting another modern retelling, this time with Oblivion and Tron: Legacy director Joseph Kosinski in talks to direct. This marks the fourth remake for The Twilight Zone, including the 1983 film and the TV revivals in 1985 and 2002.

This speaks volumes about what we’re likely to get in our next Twilight Zone remake. For one, there’s only one director being announced- so either Kosinski will be directing all of the film’s segments by himself, or the film will inexplicably be a single episode stretched to feature length. And second, Kosinski’s not known for his horror chops. The only two pictures in his filmography are futuristic sci-fi tales, so could his modern Twilight Zone ease up on the spookiness and send us centuries into the future? The folks at The Hollywood Reporter mention that the script has already been re-written to hell and back, but will be altered to fit Kosinski’s unique style. That’s key as anyone who’s watched and loved Rod Serling’s series knows its memorable greatness came from the stories. No word yet on who, specifically, is in charge of alterations.

The big question from here is: who’ll be the narrator/host? My vote goes to Keith David.
