Kosinski to enter Twilight Zone

Joseph Kosinski is reportedly in talks to direct The Twilight Zone movie.

The Oblivion filmmaker is in negotiations to take the reins on the big-screen adaptation of the sci-fi TV series for Warner Bros, said The Hollywood Reporter.

Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Davisson Killoran will produce the reboot through their Appian Way production company.

A number of writers including Sherlock Holmes' Anthony Peckham are helping to develop the screenplay for the big screen.

Created and narrated by Rod Serling, the paranormal and futuristic series ran for five seasons from 1959 to 1964.

The show starred established talent such as Buster Keaton, Joan Blondell and Ann Blyth, alongside then-rising stars like William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, Burt Reynolds, Dennis Hopper and Robert Redford.

The show was revived for subsequent series in 1985 and 2002, and was turned into a film starring John Lithgow in 1983.

Joseph, who also directed Tron: Legacy, has been working on the Tron sequel, with Garrett Hedlund, Olivia Wilde and Bruce Boxleitner set to return.
