The Twilight Zone was one of the best things that ever happened to television. The Rod Serling anthology ran from 1959-64, was revived in 1985 and 2002, and now, 10 years later, there's word of another reboot. According to EW, director and producer Bryan Singer (the X-Men franchise) has his eye on The Twilight Zone. Apparently he and CBS TV Studios are in the "very early stages" of creating a new version of the show. It's been confirmed that Singer will serve as executive producer, but no writer's attached.
Singer and company are taking a leap of faith. The previous reboots struggled in the ratings, but the TV landscape has changed. Genre shows have become extremely popular. The Walking Dead and Revolution are thriving, and FX's hit American Horror Story takes a page directly out of Serling's book.

Warner Bros. and Appian Way are close to hiring a new writer for The Twilight Zone movie. According to Variety, the studio is in negotiations with Joby Harold to rewrite a script that was initially written by Jason Rothenberg and then rewritten by Anthony Peckham.
Matt Reeves is set to direct the picture. Unlike the 1983 movie, which had four separate storylines, this new movie will have one story that incorporates various elements from the Rod Serling classic TV series.
