Matt Reeves Enters The Twilight Zone
He'll direct the film for Warners

Matt Reeves Enters The Twilight Zone

Warner Bros. and producer Leonardo DiCaprio are clearly not hanging around when it comes to getting a new Twilight Zone film on its feet. Just a couple of weeks ago there came word that the studio was looking down a list of big-name directors to make the movie, with Christopher Nolan, Alfonso Cuaron and David Yates all floated as possibilities. But now Warners has made its choice: Let Me In man Matt Reeves is sitting in the chair.

Reeves wasn’t mentioned in the original report, but he’s certainly a director in demand after the success of Cloverfield and the vampire remake. He’ll be tackling a script by Jason Rothenberg that departs from the multi-story approach of the 1983 movie and unravels a single plot strand. There’s no word yet on what exactly that will be, but it reportedly touches on the themes of Rod Serling’s classic anthology series.

Yet we do wonder whether this means all his other possible projects are now going to have to sit and wait while he tackles Serling’s legacy. He’s got one of the many Frankenstein projects (young Victor project This Dark Endeavour at Summit), vampire novel adaptation The Passage and a new take on sci-fi short story 8 O’Clock In The Morning in various stages of development. We’d guess Warners will want the Zone to jump to the front of the queue, but we’ll have to wait and see…

Not to bad but JJ Abrams would be the best. He loves the twilight zone so he would be very respectful. He is also great at gettting the deeper feelings in a sci-fi classic. More
