In case you missed the news from October, Warner Bros. and Leonardo DiCaprio’s production company, Appian Way, are moving forward with a big screen feature based on The Twilight Zone. Cloverfield and Let Me In director Matt Reeves is on board to direct and they are about to hire a new writer to polish the existing script.

According to reports, Tony Peckham (Sherlock Holmes, Invictus) is in final negotiations to rewrite the script, which was originally created by Jason Rothenberg. Details are still slim, but we know that the film will be a single story instead of an anthology and it is not a remake of any specific episode of the TV series. However, it is said that the movie “touches on several themes from the Rod Sterling TV show”.

Matt Reeves is currently attached to multiple projects including This Dark Endeavor, The Passage, and 8 O’Clock in the Morning. Since he was brought on as director of The Twilight Zone, we still haven't heard how this will affect his involvement in those other films.
