According to THR, the “X-Men” and “The Usual Suspects” director plans to executive produce and possibly direct the latest resurrection of Rod Serling’s classic series.
Every few years, someone tries to take another stab at “The Twilight Zone,” and every few years we get a chance to talk about how great the original five seasons of the series were. Bryan Singer is the latest to throw his hat into the sci-fi anthology ring, devloping a reboot with CBS Television Studios. The project is still seeking a writer (or writers?) to bring the eerie back.
No networks are attached to the series yet, but it would be the third attempt at the series following CBS’ 85 update with direction from the likes of “Nightmare on Elm Street” writer-director Wes Craven and “Halloween III” director Tommy Lee Wallace, with another attempt by the defunct UPN hosted by Forrest Whitaker which lasted all of a season between 2002 and 2003.
Singer will have to work this in-between his direction of “X-Men: Days of Future Past” which is he’s currently preparing for 20th Century Fox.
