The Outer Limits 

It looks like the SINISTER writing team of Scott Derrickson and C.Robert Cargill are on-board to pen the script for the MGM's planned feature version of classic '60s TV show, THE OUTER LIMITS.

Rather than taking an anthology format, it seems the plan is to remake the episode DEMON WITH THE GLASS HAND, originally written by Harlan Ellison.

In the TV version, a group of aliens from the Kyben race are hunting a man with no memory of anything beyond the previous ten days. Oh, and he's from the future, and he has a computerised hand which is missing a three digits, and he must reattach them before he can find out what's going on.

MGM would no doubt love to be able to build a franchise around the series, which although not as famous as THE TWILIGHT ZONE still has millions of fans and many genuinely brilliant episodes.

Derrickson, of course, was recently announced for the upcoming DOCTOR STRANGE movie, and took to Twitter in a similar fashion to tease his involvement.


No word yet on any projected release date or director, but no doubt, news will be forthcoming.
