Warner, DiCaprio entering Twilight Zone

Everyone wants into the Twilight business, but in this case, there are no hunky vampires: The Twilight Zone, Rod Serling's iconic sci-fi anthology TV series, is set to be reborn again as a movie.

Variety reports that Warner Brothers and Leonardo DiCaprio's Appian Way production company have hired Rand Ravich (The Astronauth's Wife) to write a script based on the show. Ravich also created the acclaimed but canceled NBC series Life.

The original Twilight Zone series ran on CBS for five seasons starting in 1959. It was resurrected as a TV show in 1985-'89 (on CBS and then in syndication) and again in 2002 (on UPN). It was also made into a feature film in 1983, with directors such as Steven Spielberg and John Landis helming segments.
