New "Twilight Zone" movie

WB and DiCaprio Eyeing Twilight Zone Movie

Warner Bros. and Leonardo DiCaprio's production company Appian Way are in the early stages of seeking material for a feature take on one or more episodes from the classic TV series "The Twilight Zone," according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The trade says that the studio and production company are quietly putting out word to creators that they are looking for pitches and script ideas based on the show for feature development.

The companies are not seeking to remake an episodic movie, as the only big-screen version of the show did 25 years ago, but rather hope to build one continuing story line based on one or more episodes.

Warners owns rights to the Rod Serling-penned episodes, which comprise the bulk of its 1959-64 run
I am known in many realms by many names, but those that know me in your world call me the Phantom Stranger.

I saw this.  It might be interesting, depending on how they carry it off.  It's hard to duplicate the success of the orignal series.
