Directors Christopher Nolan & Michael Bay are Being Considered for the New <I>Twilight Zone</i> Movie

Warner Bros. is serious about moving forward with a new film based on the classic television show. Also in the mix to direct are Alfonso Cuaron and Rupert Wyatt.

Variety/Showblitz is reporting that Warner Bros. is looking into a brand new Twilight Zone film, reviving a franchise of TV shows and films which began in 1959. WB is reportedly looking at several big name directors to helm the film, among them Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight), Michael Bay (Transformers) and Rupert Wyatt (Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes). Harry Potter director David Yates is also reportedly being considered as well.



Mutual interest is brewing between WB and at least three individuals: Christopher Nolan, Michael Bay and Alfonso Cuaron, Variety's Justin Kroll exclusively reports. There’s also a dark horse in the mix: Rupert Wyatt, whose RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES drew rave reviews and more than $400 million worldwide.


Variety goes on to say that Nolan has emerged as the front-runner, but there's a possibility that he won't take it due to the similarities of The Twilight Zone to his last film, Inception.
