WB, DiCaprio in ‘Zone’ with Ravich

Duo hire writer to adapt classic TV series

Warner Bros. and Leonardo DiCaprio’s Appian Way are moving ahead on a “Twilight Zone” movie, hiring Rand Ravich to pen a script based on the iconic TV series, which melded fantasy, science-fiction and horror elements.

Studio first set up the project with the Warner-based shingle a year ago.

Ravich’s feature credits include directing “The Astronaut’s Wife” and exec producing “Confessions of a Dangerous Mind.” He also created NBC’s detective series “Life.”

The original “Twilight Zone” series ran for five seasons starting in 1959 on CBS, with Rod Serling creating the skein and writing more than half of the 156 episodes.

Warners released the previous bigscreen incarnation of the property, 1983’s “Twilight Zone: The Movie,” with Steven Spielberg and John Landis producing and directing segments.
