The ‘Twilight Zone‘ film is set to a high standard as Warner Bros. has drafted a list of high-caliber directors to handle the film. However, unlike the 1983 adaptation, which had four directors for the different segments, this film project will only have one plot and director.
According to Justin Kroll of Variety, three directors have expressed interests regarding the project: Christopher Nolan, Alfonso Cuaron, and Michael Bay. Nolan has emerged as the prime candidate, but while he has close relations with Warner Bros., there isn’t any certainty as to whether he’ll take on the job, since ‘Twilight Zone’ has similarities to ‘Inception’.
A dark horse in the contenders’ list is director Rupert Wyatt who has made a name for himself with ‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes’, which made over $400,000,000 globally and earned excellent reviews.
The 1983 version of ‘Twilight Zone’ was divided into stories and directed by four directors: Joe Dante for ‘Gremlins’, George Miller for ‘Mad Max’, and Steven Spielberg and John Landis for ‘Animal House’.
