DiCaprio Preps For His Twilight Zone
Hiring writer Rand Ravich for reboot

Doodoodoodoo doodoodoodoo doodoodoodoo doodoodoodoo. Leonardo DiCaprio's production house Appian Way are stepping up the pace on getting to their Twilight Zone by hiring writer Rand Ravich to craft a script.

Not to be confused with some sort of vampire movie fansite, Twilight Zone will be a second stab at a big screen version of the classic '50s TV sci-fi fantasy chiller, brought to cinemas by Warner Bros. The first try was co-directed and produced by John Landis and Steven Spielbery in 1983.

Pen-for-hire Ravich is best known for his work on Johnny Depp and Charlize Theron flick The Astronaut's Wife which he wrote and directed in 1999.

This big screen Twilight Zone comes exactly fifty years after the original TV series started, running for 156 episodes. TZ is due in cinemas in 2011, but whether DiCaprio will stay behind camera for this project is as yet unknown. However, the slick-haired one looks to be showing a certain flair for twisted fifties horror with his new film Shutter Island.
