Matt Reeves Directing

Over at Variety (via FirstShowing), Justin Kroll tweets that that Let Me In and Cloverfield director Matt Reeves is now not directing Warner Bros.’ brand-new Twilight Zone feature film, thanks to those pesky little things known as “scheduling conflicts.” Yet, in the case of Reeves, the director probably did have far too much going on to direct to this new venture.

Reeves was tapped for the gig last October, but even back then, the filmmaker had one heck of a full plate. Reeves now has no less than six other projects currently in development that, no doubt, added to the scheduling woes. Those projects include his rumored attachment to direct the Cloverfield sequel, producing an untitled project with Brad Parker and J.J. Abrams, directing This Dark Endeavor: The Apprenticeship of Victor Frankenstein, writing and producing The Invisible Woman, directing The Passage, and writing and directing the adaptation of 8 O’Clock in the Morning. Yeah, the guy is pretty busy, yet it’s still too bad he won’t be helming Twilight Zone, as it sure seemed to fit right in Reeves’ wheelhouse.

Kroll also notes that the “studio has now placed an ODA on project,” which is an open directing assignment, which is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. Who would you like to see direct a new Twilight Zone feature?
