Who remembers The Outer Limits? I was searching for images to go with this article and, I gotta be honest, some of those 1960s episodes had scary stuff in them…

Anyway, I digress…

Scott Derrickson, not content with looking after Doctor Strange at Marvel/Disney, is joining with C. Robert Cargill, who co-wrote Sinister with him, to bring the creepy 1960s series to the big screen for MGM.

The duo will be bringing the season 2 episode Demon With A Glass Hand to the silver screen. The episode was written by the great Harlan Ellison and was about an alien army who came to earth to find the last survivor of a great war – a man with a glass computerised hand.

More info as we get it, folks…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
