Last fall, it was reported that Let Me In director Matt Reeves dropped out of the Warner Bros. revival of The Twilight Zone so he can direct Dawn of the Planet of the Apes instead. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. has found a director to potentially take Reeves’ place. According to the report, Tron Legacy and Oblivion director Joseph Kosinski is currently in talks to take on the project that’s being produced by Leonardo DiCaprio through his Appian Way banner.
Plot details are currently being kept under wraps. A number of writers have worked on the project, including Sherlock Holmes writer Anthony Peckham. The script is currently being redeveloped for Kosinski.
The original television series ran for five seasons on CBS from 1959 to 1964. The Twilight Zone: The Movie was released in 1983 followed by a series revival in 1985 and 2002.
So, Drew Godard wasn’t available? Joseph Kosinski is a fine choice and all but I personally think this project deserves a director with a horror background. What are your thoughts?
