You’re traveling through another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound, but with some of the top director’s in talks to direct it.
Variety is reporting that Christopher Nolan, Michael Bay and Alfonso Cauron are the top names in a short list to direct an upcoming reboot of 1983’s The Twilight Zone. Director Rupert Wyatt is another name that’s also on the list, but when you’re up against the director of Batman and Transformers…well, better luck next time sucker.
While this does sound awesome, there will be no gremlins on the wings of planes or living dolls, the film is rumored to touch on elements of the original television series created by Rod Serling. Leonardo DiCaprio will produce through his Appian Way, along with Jennifer Killoran Davisson and George DiCaprio. Rand Ravich and Jason Rothenberg have already written a script to accompany the new .
Another change will be the how the film will be directed, using only one instead on the original’s use of four different directors. So while we won’t see a film combining all the styles of Nolan, Bay, Cauron and (ugh)Wyatt, but one is better then nothing.
And no matter who takes the director’s chair the very least they could do is get William Shatner to cameo, get on that Warner Bros.
