Director Joseph Kosinski to Enter THE TWILIGHT ZONE

Warner Bros. has been trying to get this new generation to enter The Twilight Zone for quite some time now. Director Matt Reeves, who will next be seen helming the sequel "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes", was originally attached to direct back in 2011. Now "Oblivion" and "Tron: Legacy" director Joseph Kosinksi is in talks to helm the picture.

Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Davisson Killoran are producing the film with their Appian Way production company, along with Michale Ireland. DiCaprio will next been seen in front of the lens in Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf of Wall Street".

Anthony Peckham, known for his writing credits on "Sherlock Holmes" and "Invictus", penned the first draft of the script. The project is said to now be in redevelopment for Kosinski, should the deal be locked.

The premise is obviously derived from the hit 1959 TV series of the same name, which was made popular by creater Rob Serling. A movie version was adapted in 1983 which starred Dan Aykroyd and Albert Brooks. I haven't seen that picture but given the two stars of the film, I imagine it definitely incorporated comedic elements.

Kosinski has become known for his incredibly vibrant visuals and rich worlds, but the plot of his films has been found weak in comparison. Sci-fi is definitely within his wheelhouse, so it will be interesting to see what he would do with the subject matter.

Do you think Kosinski is the right man for the job? Let us know in the comments section below!

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.
