Variety is reporting that Warner Bros. and Leonardo DiCaprio’s Appian Way are moving ahead on a Twilight Zone movie. They’ve hired Rand Ravich to pen a script based on the iconic TV series, which melded fantasy, science-fiction and horror elements. Ravich’s feature credits include directing The Astronaut’s Wife and exec producing Confessions of a Dangerous Mind. He also created NBC’s detective series Life.
The original Twilight Zone series ran for five seasons starting in 1959 on CBS, with Rod Serling creating the skein and writing more than half of the 156 episodes.
Warners released the previous bigscreen incarnation of the property, 1983’s Twilight Zone: The Movie, with Steven Spielberg and John Landis producing and directing segments.
