The original was released in 1983 and followed four separate story-lines intertwining into one. This one, on the other hand, will follow a single storyline and use classic elements from Rod Serling's original TV series. The studio is hoping to build this project into a potential Tentpole.
The script for the film was originally written by Jason Rothenberg, then re-written by Sherlock Holmes writer Anthony Peckham, making Joby Harold the third person tasked with scripting this project.
Appian Way's Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Davisson Killoran and Michael Ireland are producing.
