Warner Bros. is determined to revisit THE TWILIGHT ZONE, with the project gaining momentum over the past several weeks. It was only a couple of weeks ago when we told you that the studio had been in talks with OBLIVION director Joseph Kosinski to helm, and now Variety is reporting that a writer has signed on to the project that is set up at Leonardo DiCaprio’s Appian Way where DiCaprio is producing with his partner Jennifer Davisson Killoran.
Variety is reporting that “The River,” “Heroes” and “Crossing Jordan" scribe Aron Eli Coleite has been hired to pen the sceenplay for the sci-fi tentpole. It seems Coleite has been in demand as of late, with his end-of-the-world spec script THE END set up last year at Warner Bros. with Drew Barrymore on board to direct.
Coleite isn't the first writer to take a stab at the screenplay for THE TWILIGHT ZONE, with Anthony Peckham, Rand Ravich and Joby Harold each having worked previously on iterations of the screenplay for the film.
We'll keep you posted on news regarding THE TWILIGHT ZONE as we hear it.
