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?
