Tron: Legacy Director in Talks to Direct TWILIGHT ZONE
Tron: Legacy and Oblivion director Joseph Kosinski is in talks with Warner Bros. to direct a new big screen version of The Twilight Zone!
Kosinski is a very talented visual and technical director. His films look amazing, but he could use some help on story and writing. The scripts are the weakest aspect of his films.
There are no story or structure details at this time for the film, but the project will be retooled for Kosinski. So if he comes on board the whole thing will be built from scratch even though the studio has gone through a few scripts and directors over the years of trying to get it made.
If Kosinski ends up with the directing gig, it will be awesome to see what he does with it. There's no doubt it will look great! I just hope he surrounds himself with good writers that can deliver a great script because that's the weakest part of his films.
