Hiding within an article on time travel over at Vulture, they reveal the plot for Warner Bros. Pictures The Twilight Zone, a long work in progress pieced together by writers Joby Harold, Tony Peckham, Rand Ravich and Jason Rothenberg.
“It follows a test pilot who winds up breaking the speed of light; when he puts down his craft, he discovers that he’s landed a bit late for supper — 96 years late.”
As AICN pointed out, it resembles the Feb. 5, 1960 episode “The Last Flight,” the first “Twilight Zone” scripted by Richard Matheson. It followed a British biplane pilot fighting World War I in 1917 who finds himself passing through a strange cloud and ending up on an American air base in 1959. You can watch the episode inside.
The feature is based on the venerated Rod Serling sci-fi TV series that also sparked a 1983 film. Cloverfield and Let Me In‘s Matt Reeves was originally slated to direct. There’s been no replacement as of yet.
