Warner Bros. is hoping to land The Dark Knight Rises director Christopher Nolan for The Twilight Zone. Michael Bay and Alfonso Cuarón are also considered top candidates for the job, but Christopher Nolan is believed to be the front runner.
We reported last October that screenwriter Jason Rothenberg is writing The Twilight Zone with Rand Ravich, although there has been no movement on the project since then. Twilight Zone: The Movie, which Warner Bros. released in 1983, featured four top-level directors (Steven Spielberg, Joe Dante, John Landis, and George Miller), who each directed their own segment. This version will feature a single story line with just one director.
Rise of the Planet of the Apes director Rupert Wyatt is also considered to be another candidate for The Twilight Zone. All of the directors mentioned do not have plans for their next movie locked in yet.
