Leonardo DiCaprio Hires Writer to Pen Twilight Zone Movie
Posted 07.20.09 by reelz
Variety is reporting that Leonardo DiCaprio and his production company Appian Way have hired Rand Ravich to pen a new Twilight Zone movie. Ravich wrote the screenplay for The Astronaut's Wife and also created the NBC TV series Life.
This would be the second cinematic adaptation of Rod Serling's classic TV series, which ran from 1959 to 1964 and included 156 episodes. The first movie came in 1983, with segments directed by Steven Spielberg, Joe Dante (Gremlins, Small Soldiers), and John Landis (An American Werewolf in London, Michael Jackson's Thriller video).
There's no official word yet on if DiCaprio will star in the film, or if the movie will draw material from the TV series.
