Intriguing Writer Penning ‘Twilight Zone’ Feature

Some fantastic news this evening as Warner Bros. is about to unlock the other dimension and cross over into the Twilight Zone. The studio and Leonardo DiCaprio’s Appian Way are moving ahead on the Twilight Zone movie, hiring 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, a film that carried a very Twilight Zone-esque premise and finale. 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. If you haven’t seen ‘em, queue them up on Netflix or Blockbuster ASAP. What you might want to avoid is Warners previous bigscreen incarnation of the property, 1983′s “Twilight Zone: The Movie,” with Steven Spielberg and John Landis producing and directing segments.
