"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
Warner Bros. has tapped Cloverfield and Let Me In director Matt Reeves to helm a big-screen adaptation of The Twilight Zone.
Deadline reports that, unlike the 1983 film based on Rod Serling’s classic television series, this take on The Twilight Zone won’t be an anthology. Instead the script by Jason Rothenberg is described as a big sci-fi action thriller that has an “eerie feel” similar to the 1959-1964 TV show.
Appian Way partners Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Davisson Killoran will produce the adaptation with Michael Ireland. The studio reportedly wants to sign Reeves quickly to begin production by next summer.
