Bryan Singer may be the guy who brings Twilight Zone back to TV

The Twilight Zone was one of the best things that ever happened to television. The Rod Serling anthology ran from 1959-64, was revived in 1985 and 2002, and now, 10 years later, there's word of another reboot.

According to EW, director and producer Bryan Singer (the X-Men franchise) has his eye on The Twilight Zone. Apparently he and CBS TV Studios are in the "very early stages" of creating a new version of the show. It's been confirmed that Singer will serve as executive producer, but no writer's attached.

Singer and company are taking a leap of faith. The previous reboots struggled in the ratings, but the TV landscape has changed. Genre shows have become extremely popular. The Walking Dead and Revolution are thriving, and FX's hit American Horror Story takes a page directly out of Serling's book.

This isn't the first time we've heard of a revival. Back in 2009, Warner Bros. and Leonardo DiCaprio began work on a Twilight Zone movie. It's a feat that was previously achieved in 1983. Their film has yet to hit theaters, so we're still waiting.

Are you interested in another Twilight Zone?
