The Twilight Zone Movie Gets a Director; Hopefully He’s Amenable to Pig People

Last we heard of the Twilight Zone movie, Leonardo DiCaprio‘s production company Appian Way had been trying to make it happen for approximately forever-and-a-half. There was even a vague, questionably accurate plot summary involving time travel. And now there’s even more progress, as producers DiCaprio and Jennifer Davisson Killoran have reportedly chosen whom they want to direct.

So who’s likely going to be helming the triumphant comeback of this legendary, much-beloved sci-fi franchise?

The guy who directed TRON: Legacy.

Er.

Leonardo DiCaprio Brags, Parties, and Angsts (In That Order) in the New The Great Gatsby Trailer

The latest trailer for Baz Luhrmann‘s The Great Gatsby makes it look like a technicolor booze-fueled crime thriller. Which… well, I’m kind of OK with that. It’s a Baz Luhrmann movie. No one expects to see a 100% faithful adaptation. I’m still not sold on Leonardo DiCaprio as Gatsby, and though I realize it’s completely unfair my instinctual reaction to Tobey Maguire starring in a movie is to wince. It takes a long time to wash away the mental trauma of Spider-Man 3, OK?

If I’m being honest, I’ll probably see it. Because Joel Edgerton. Not that I need to justify myself to anyone!

For more ’20s glitz and glamor, check out recently released character posters for Tom (Edgerton), Myrtle (Isla Fisher), Nick (Maguire), and Jordan (Elizabeth Debicki).

The Future Is Now!

The Twilight Zone Movie Is Still Happening, (Probably) Won’t Involve Pig People

You remember that The Twilight Zone movie Leonardo DiCaprio‘s Appian Way production company is making? No? Well, it’s a thing that’s happening. Not much progress has been made in the five years since it was put into development; the only major recent announcement is that director Matt Reeves (Cloverfield) ditched the project for the Rise of the Planet of the Apes sequel.

Until a few days ago, that is, when out of nowhere came evidence that, holy crap, this Twilight Zone movie might actually still be happening, you guys! The evidence in question is a vague plot description; according to Vulture, the film will be about “a test pilot who winds up breaking the speed of light; when he puts down his craft, he discovers that he’s landed a bit late for supper — 96 years late.”

Tweedle-deedle-tweedle-deedle…

Metropolis Film Poster Could Be Sold For $850,000

No, we’re not talking about Clark Kent’s current living space, this is the classic sci-fi film directed by Fritz Lang that influenced just about every major sci-fi film that came after it. A three-sheet movie poster done for the film by art deco artist Heinz Schulz-Neudamm is being offered up for the low, low price of $850,000. Want to see what $850,000 worth of poster looks like?

Kurt Russell Probably Replacing Kevin Costner in Tarantino’s Django Unchained

About two weeks ago, Kevin Costner had to drop out of Quentin Tarantino‘s upcoming western, Django Unchained. But now, it looks like the filmmaker will be reunited with one of his past stars — Kurt Russell is currently in talks to take over the role vacated by Costner, Ace Woody. It won’t be the first time Russell replaced an actor in a Tarantino movie, either — the part of Stuntman Mike in 2007′s Death Proof was supposed to have been played by Mickey Rourke. Pretty cool to have Kurt Russell as your perennial backup.

The Short List to Direct the New Twilight Zone Movie Includes Christopher Nolan

You might have heard that Leonardo DiCaprio is looking to produce a new Twilight Zone movie for Warner Bros. In a departure from the 1983 movie, which featured an anthology format — four segments, four separate stories, four directors — there will be only one story and one director. The story, which will be inspired by an episode of the original Twilight Zone series, will be written by Rand Ravich (The Astronaut’s Wife). The director has yet to be chosen, though there is a “short list” going around that includes Michael Bay, Alfonso Cuaron (Children of Men, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban), Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes), and frequent DiCaprio collaborator Christopher Nolan. I’ll let the thought of a Nolan-helmed Twilight Zone movie simmer for a moment and then meet you all after the jump.

Tobey Maguire, Leo DiCaprio, Matt Damon and Ben Affleck Possibly Involved in Illegal Gambling Ring

This sounds more like a movie than it does something that actually happened, but Tobey Maguire, Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, and Leonardo DiCaprio (among others) have been named for their involvement in an illegal gambling ring. And no, it’s not a revival of Guys and Dolls, either (although how amazing would that be?).

Unexpected Rerelease of the Day: Titanic in 3-D

Yup, just so you can relive that period (almost fifteen years ago) when Leonardo DiCaprio was an annoyingly popular teenage heartthrob and not the guy starring in cerebral, memetic Christopher Nolan blockbusters while bankrolling a live-action Akira…

James Cameron is restoring, digitally remastering, and converting Titanic to 3-D, for a brand new theatrical release next spring.

Akira Pre-Production Halted for The Moment; Keanu Reeves Is Off the Project

According to JoBlo.com, anime fans can breathe easier, for a little while, at least. Not only has Keanu Reeves reportedly passed on the starring role of Kaneda, Warner Bros. has shut down Akira‘s pre-visualization department, and “let go” most of the staff working on the film’s pre-production.

Warner Bros. maintains that the two occurrences have nothing to do with one another, telling JoBlo:
