New Screenwriter Attached To Warner’s “The Twilight Zone”

August 25, 2013

Variety reports that Warner Bros.’ THE TWILIGHT ZONE is gaining momentum now that screenwriter Aron Eli Coleite has been hired to pen the screenplay.

Coleite has been an active TV writer with writing and producing credits on The River, Heroes and Crossing Jordan. His end-of-the-world spec script The End was set up last year at Warner Bros. with Drew Barrymore on board to direct.

Anthony Peckham, Rand Ravich and Joby Harold have previously worked on drafts of the screenplay for The Twilight Zone.

The studio has been in talks with director Joseph Kosinski (Oblivion) to helm The Twilight Zone, set up at Leonardo DiCaprio’s Appian Way.

Warners has been developing the project since 2009. While the 1983 feature Twilight Zone had four separate storylines, this movie will have one story with various elements from the “Twilight Zone” universe.

“The Twilight Zone,” created and hosted by Rod Serling, ran as a CBS series from 1959 to 1964. The show melded fantasy, science-fiction and horror elements with Serling serving as the executive producer and writing or co-writing 92 of the show’s 156 episodes along with delivering monologues at the beginning and end of each episode.
