Movie News

As previously reported, Warner Bros are set to journey once more into THE TWILIGHT ZONE with another crack at a feature length movie. Well, seems that they've finally settled on a director, and it's a filmmaker that, while we're quite happy with, was not one of the high-profile names that were originally being touted (Christopher Nolan, Michael Bay, etc). Instead, the brothers Warner have opted for...

Matt Reeves, director of the excellent found footage monster romp CLOVERFIELD, and the decent but ultimately pointless remake LET ME IN. Yep, we're happy with that.

What is disappointing however, is the confirmation that Warner Bros are still sticking with their new approach to the franchise - unlike the patchy 1983 movie (Joe Dante's NIGHTMARE AT 20,000 FEET was spectacular, but the less said about Spielberg's KICK THE CAN the better), the new movie will instead spin a single tale as opposed to the more traditional anthology route. Which begs the question - why call it THE TWILIGHT ZONE at all?

More as it comes...

Is Matt Reeves the right choice? Are you up for another big-screen TWILIGHT ZONE, or does a movie betray its TV roots? Share your thoughts in the Comments below or on Twitter @Starburst_Mag
