'Oblivion' & 'Tron: Legacy' Director Joseph Kosinski Travels To 'The Twilight Zone'

While the anticipated sequel (well, anticipated by nerds) to "Tron: Legacy" remains a thing that might happen at Disney (though we think with their slate full of Marvel movies and "Star Wars" sequels, it's probably not a big priority), director Joseph Kosinski is looking at some other options for his follow-up to this spring's sci-fi "Oblivion." And it looks like he wants to enter another dimension...a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind.

The Twilight Zone Joseph Kosinski

While the anticipated sequel (well, anticipated by nerds) to "Tron: Legacy" remains a thing that might happen at Disney (though we think with their slate full of Marvel movies and "Star Wars" sequels, it's probably not a big priority), director Joseph Kosinski is looking at some other options for his follow-up to this spring's sci-fi "Oblivion." And it looks like he wants to enter another dimension...a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind.

THR reports that he's signing the paperwork to helm the long-brewing "The Twilight Zone" for Warner Bros. This has been kicking around for a while, with Matt Reeves once attached to direct it a couple years back. And while Tony Peckham ("Invictus, "Sherlock Holmes," "Book of Eli") was tapped to pen the script at one point, they are basically redeveloping the movie to fit Kosinski's sensibilities, which after two films, seems to be architecturally perfect shiny surfaces. Leonardo DiCaprio is producing this thing through his Appian Way shingle, so that's interesting, and while there are no plot details yet, back in the day it was said the movie would forgo the anthology format of the original show and 1983 movie.

No word yet on how this will effect (or not) the reboot of the TV show over at CBS that gained Bryan Singer as a producer at the end of last year, about which not much has been heard since. Either way, on the big screen or small, some very freaky stories will be making a comeback.
