WB sets scribe to rewrite ‘Twilight Zone’

'All You Need Is Kill' writer Joby Harold takes third pass at potential tentpole

Joby Harold, who was tapped to rewrite Warner Bros.’ tentpole “All You Need Is Kill,” is now in negotiations to rewrite “The Twilight Zone” for WB and Appian Way.

“Cloverfield” helmer Matt Reeves is set to direct from a script originally penned by Jason Rothenberg and subsequently rewritten by “Sherlock Holmes” scribe Anthony Peckham. Warner Bros. has been looking for a sci-fi-friendly scribe to get the script into shooting shape, as the studio views the pic as a potential tentpole.

Unlike the 1983 feature that had four separate storylines, this pic will have one story that features elements from the “Twilight Zone” universe made popular by Rod Serling’s classic TV series.

Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Davisson Killoran and Michael Ireland will produce for Appian Way.

Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt are set to star in “All You Need Is Kill,” which Doug Liman is directing for Warner Bros.

Harold previously wrote and directed the 2007 medical thriller “Awake” starring Hayden Christensen and Jessica Alba. Brian De Palma is attached to direct the Harold-scripted thriller “The Key Man,” which is set up at Open Road Films and QED Intl.

Harold is repped by CAA and attorney Carlos Goodman.
