There’s long been a new “Twilight Zone” feature in development at Warner Bros., but this is the first I’ve heard about it’s about.

Buried toward the end of a Vulture story about upcoming time-travel movie projects, there was this:

Warner Bros. is developing The Twilight Zone (based on the venerated Rod Serling sci-fi TV series that also sparked a 1983 film), that until recently was to be directed Matt Reeves (Cloverfield). It follows a test pilot who winds up breaking the speed of light; when he puts down his craft, he discovers that he’s landed a bit late for supper — 96 years late.

That sounds a little like the Feb. 5, 1960 episode “The Last Flight,” the first “Twilight Zone” scripted by Richard Matheson. It followed a British biplane pilot fighting World War I in 1917 who finds himself passing through a strange cloud and ending up on an American air base in 1959.

Thanks to my fellow KERN-AM contributor “Movie” Mike Armendariz for the heads up.
