Warners has been developing the project since 2009 as a potential tentpole. While the 1983 feature “Twilight Zone” had four separate storylines, this pic will have one story with various elements from the “Twilight Zone” universe.

Coleite has been an active  TV writer with writing and producing credits on “The River,” “Heroes” and “Crossing Jordan.” His end-of-the-world spec script “The End” was set up last year at Warner Bros. with Drew Barrymore on board to direct.

Anthony Peckham, Rand Ravich and Joby Harold have worked previously on iterations of the screenplay for “The Twilight Zone.”

“The Twilight Zone,” created and hosted by Rod Serling, ran as a series CBS from 1959 to 1964.  The show melded fantasy, science-fiction and horror elements with Serling serving as the exec producer and writing or co-writing 92 of the show’s 156 episodes along with delivering monologues at the beginning and end of each episode.

Coleite is repped by CAA and attorney Karl Austen.
