'Tron' Helmer Joseph Kosinski to Direct 'Twilight Zone' Film (Exclusive)
Leonardo DiCaprio's Appian Way is producing the property, which is now being redeveloped.

Joseph Kosinski is about to enter The Twilight Zone. The Tron helmer is in negotiations to direct the big-screen redo of the sci-fi property for Warner Bros.

Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Davisson Killoran are producing via their Appian Way banner, which is based at Warners. Michael Ireland is also producing.

A number of writers have taken a crack at the screenplay including Anthony Peckham (Sherlock Holmes). The project is now being redeveloped for Kosinski. Plot details are being kept under wraps.

Created by Rod Serling, The Twilight Zone began as a TV series that ran for five seasons on CBS from 1959-64. Subsequent TV series were revived in 1985 and 2002. The sci-fi classic, which revolves around paranormal and futuristic story lines, also spawned a 1983 film starring John Lithgow.

Giovanni Agnelli and Scott Bloom are executive producing the new film version. 

Kosinski most recently directed the Tom Cruise starrer Oblivion for Universal. He is attached to helm a Tron sequel at Disney.

Kosinski is repped by Verve, Reset and attorneys Barry Hirsch and David Matlof.
