The Twilight Zone Heading Back to Theatres

There’s no question that when you think classic cinema, one of the first shows that comes to mind is Rod Serling’s “The Twilight Zone”. While there have been several attempts to recapture that magic both on TV and theatrically, the lightning has yet to be captured into the proverbial bottle. Still … Hollywood is looking to try again!

According to Deadline New York “Jason Rothenberg (The Sparrow) has landed the assignment to write The Twilight Zone, a new feature version of the Rod Serling classic ’50s TV series that Warner Bros is developing with Leonardo DiCaprio’s Appian Way. Details are scant, but the expectation is they will take some of the original stories written for the series by the likes of Serling and Richard Matheson.”

No word yet on what episodes will be getting the retelling, but there sure is tons of material to choose from. Might I suggest “The Night Caller” or “Mr. Garrity and the Graves”? They’re two of my favorites. What are yours?

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    Why do we need the same stories retold? Why not just watch the original.

    I’m all for a Twilight Zone movie (a 2nd one) but give us stories that have not been committed to film before. To keep the proper tone it would be best to raid the rich short story history of SF/Horror.

    I can think of several Bob Shaw shorts that would make superb episodes.
