“Dark Knight Rises‘ director Christopher Nolan is apparently on Warner Bros’ wishlist to direct a new reboot of the venerable film and TV franchise “The Twilight Zone, Empire reports this morning:
“But unlike the 1983 film, they wouldn’t all be contributing a segment: the plan this time around is to focus on a single storyline with one man in charge. Now the question is which of the names on the shortlist (if any, given the changeable nature of directing assignments) will hoist the megaphone.
While Nolan is Warners’ big pal given his work on the Bat-trilogy andInception, he’s also more likely to stick to his own plans unless the idea of venturing into the Zone appeals to him. There’s also the issue, as pointed out by Variety, of Inception already having seemed like it leaked from Rod Serling’s imagination.”
