Deadline is reporting that Warner Bros. has chosen Matt Reeves - who directed films such Cloverfield and Let Me In - to direct their upcoming film The Twilight Zone, based on the classic TV series of the same name.

Matt Reeves has been chosen by Warner Bros to direct The Twilight Zone, the Jason Rothenberg-scripted thriller based on the classic Rod Serling TV series. Negotiations will get underway early next week, but this is an assignment that was coveted by a number of top directors.

Deadline goes on to say that this film will be completely different from the last Twilight Zone film, describing it as a 'big sci-fi action movie'. The studio is hoping to sign Reeves quickly to begin production on the film by next summer.

The hope is to sign to sign Reeves quickly, continue to work on the script and get the picture into production by next summer.
