This won’t be the first time Rod Serling’s classic anthology series has been adapted for the big screen – 1983’s Twilight Zone: The Movie featured four stories directed by John Landis, Steven Spielberg, Joe Dante and George Miller, three of which were remakes of episodes from the 1959-1964 television show; in contrast, this latest revival, written by Jason Rothenberg, is said to focus on just one storyline.
While Nolan appears to be the studio’s favourite choice to direct, his participation is by no means assured and a list of possible alternatives has been prepared should he decline. Included on this list are Transfomers helmer Michael Bay and Alfonso Cuaron who is best known for his work on Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, along with Rupert Wyatt whose credentials have gone through the roof following the box office success of Rise of the Planet of the Apes.
Should Nolan take on the project, however, it would see him reunited with his Inception star Leonardo DiCaprio, whose Appian Way Productions will produce the movie. It will certainly be interesting to see if the pair can transport audiences to that other dimension so tantalisingly promised by the series’ opening narration…
