Re: The Twilight Zone being rebooted by Bryan Singer and CBS
Despite having been revived twice since originally airing from 1959-1964, "The Twilight Zone" will get another shot at the small-screen, various sources report. Bryan Singer (X-MEN, THE USUAL SUSPECTS) will executive produce, develop and possibly direct the pilot of the rebooted series, which is set up at CBS TV Studios.
Perhaps the recent popularity of horror television, namely shows like "The Walking Dead" and "American Horror Story", is to thank (?) for this, but it's worth reminding that a program like "The Twilight Zone" is a completely different beast. Anthology series always prove to be difficult to pull off, and the challenge is doubled when you wear the name "Twilight Zone", which for my money is the best genre television show ever aired.
Every single time they've tried to update this show the results have been SHIT! Utter absolute SHIT! Not friggin' again.
Raise Rod Serling from the dead and have his zombified corpse executive produce, I might watch. Not if it's made by the guy who shat out Superman Returns.
