Christopher Nolan Heading into The Twilight Zone?

by at . Comments

Warner Bros is looking to bring The Twilight Zone back on the big screen and return it to the public consciousness. The studio has apparently offered The Dark Knight Rises director Christopher Nolan the reins to the film and Movie Fanatic cannot think of anyone more qualified or perfect.

In 1983, the last time The Twilight Zone was on the big screen, four superstar directors joined forces to bring four vignettes to life and created cinematic gold in the process. Steven Spielberg, George Miller, John Landis and Joe Dante crafted The Twilight Zone Movie and made it into four chapters, each more compelling than the last.

Whether the new version of The Twilight Zone Movie will be broken into short segments or be one long full length feature is still left to be determined. But if Nolan is the director of the whole project or simply a part, Movie Fanatic could not be more filled with anticipation.

Also of note: Fans of Nolan can check out his Inception, re-released on IMAX screens this week.
