'Twilight Zone' reboot in the works with 'X Men' director Bryan Singer in early development stages

By Gina DiFalco,

X Men director Bryan Singer is developing a reboot of The Twilight Zone series.

Singer is developing, executive producing and possibly directing the series, an overhaul of Rod Serling’s classic that ran from 1959-1964 on CBS.

According to Deadline, Singer is in the early development stages with CBS TV Studios, who owns the rights to the series.

There hasn’t been a writer attached yet, but the Serling estate still needs to sign off on the deal. There is, however, a movie being made at Warner Bros. with Jason Rothenberg writing the script and Matt Reeves to direct.

Cinema Blend reports that there has already been a few remakes made of The Twilight Zone. One was made in the ‘80s and starred Forest Whitaker in 2002.

No word on whether or not the series would land at CBS again, as Deadline points out there hasn’t been a network attached yet.

Singer recently sought out to reboot another classic series The Munsters with Mockingbird Lane.
