After breaking into features with TRON: Legacy and following it up with this year’s sci-fi effort Oblivion, director Joseph Kosinski is now in negotiations to helm Warner Bros.’ The Twilight Zone picture.  Produced in part by Leonardo DiCaprio‘s Appian Way banner, the sci-fi reboot had drafts turned in by Jason Rothenberg (Body Politic) and Tony Peckham (Sherlock Holmes).  It’s now being redeveloped with Kosinski in mind, though plot details remain guarded.  (It’s a safe bet that the color palette will feature a lot of white.)  Heat Vision reports Kosinski being in talks, though there’s no mention of how this affects his schedule or Disney’s TRON: Legacy sequel, which he is also attached to direct.  For more on the history of The Twilight Zone, hit the jump.

Originally, The Twilight Zone was a television series created and narrated by Rod Serling.  It ran from 1959 to 1964, and was revived in 1985 for a four-year run and again in 2002 for one season.  There’s currently another TV series reboot in the works with Bryan Singer producing. The only previous attempt at a feature film was the 1983 effort, Twilight Zone: The Movie.  Directors Joe Dante (Gremlins), John Landis (An American Werewolf in London), George Miller (Mad Max) and Steven Spielberg (Close Encounters of the Third Kind) all directed individual horror/sci-fi segments featuring writing from Richard Matheson (I Am Legend).  Check out that film’s teaser trailer and intro below:
