UPDATED: Now with screenwriter! TRON LEGACY’s Kosinski heading to the Twilight Zone?

August 25th, 2013 by Marc Comments

After TRON LEGACY and Oblivion, Joeseph Kosinski is one of my favourite directors, in fact I have him secretly pegged to helm a Star Wars film (but that might be just me), so whenever I hear of a new project he’s involved in while we wait for the next TRON, I can’t help but feel enthused.

So, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Kosinski is currently attached the on/off/on big screen Twilight Zone adaptation.

While details are hazy right now – will it be one story? Several small stories? – I’m confident that with his ability to handle character, story AND effects, he’s the man for the job.

Now Lucasfilm/Disney are you paying attention?


Aintitcool are reporting that Kosinski and producer Leonardo DiCaprio have hired a virtual unknown to pen the adaptation of Rod Serling’s classic show: Aron (Ari) Eli Coleite. He has a picture in development called THE END, but his resume primarily consists of TV credits on shows like CROSSING JORDAN, HEROES, and THE RIVER. He actually functioned in various producing capacities on HEROES for its entire run.

So, does hiring an unknown doom the movie or do you reckon DiCaprio and Kosinski are smart enough to know what they’re doing? Let us know…


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….
