Cloverfield Director Enters The Twilight Zone

Matt Reeves to direct the new film which won’t be an anthology, but one story

Warner  Bros has chosen Cloverfield and Let Me In director Matt Reeves to helm the new The Twilight Zone film, reports Deadline.

Unlike the previous Twilight Zone movie in 1983 (which had various segments directed by Joe Dante, John Landis, George Miller and Steven Spielberg), this one will not be an anthology, but a single “freestanding” story, described as a “big science fiction action movie”. The script is by Jason Rothenberg (who also has a script of the SF novel The Sparrow in development) and filming should commence in the summer of 2012.

Reeves is currently a very busy man, juggling a number of in-development projects. These include This Dark Endeavor, yet another new version of Frankenstein based on a Kenneth Oppel’s novel for Summit, an adaptation of the Justin Cronin vampire novel The Passage for Fox 2000, and a film based on the Ray Nelson short story 8 O’Clock In The Morning, which sounds an awful like They Live!
