Director Bryan Singer (“Apt Pupil,” “X-Men,” “Superman Returns,” “Valkyrie,” “X-Men: Days of Future Past”) has just closed a deal with CBS TV Studios to bring a new “Twilight Zone” series back to television, according to Deadline Hollywood.
If the new series goes forward it’s likely to air on CBS or The CW and be the fourth version of the series, which originally ran on CBS 1959-1964. A second, color incarnation ran three seasons 1985-1989 on CBS and a 2002-2003 UPN version lasted 22 episodes.
There’s also a “Twilight Zone” movie in development, reportedly about an aircraft pilot flung forward in time.
Singer, who directed Fox’s “House” pilot and NBC’s “Mockingbird Lane” pilot, may do the same for the new “Twilight Zone” series
