First he entered the mainframe in "Tron: Legacy," then he jumped into "Oblivion" with Tom Cruise. Now director Joseph Kosinski may be headed into "The Twilight Zone."

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kosinski is in talks to direct a big-screen adaptation of the famously creepy paranormal series, with Leonardo DiCaprio's Appian Way company producing.

Warner Bros. has been trying to get a "Twilight Zone" movie going for years. The original CBS series ran for five years, from 1959 to 1964, and it's been revived on television a few times. John Lithgow starred in a 1983 movie.

While very few details are known, Indiewire says the new movie will not be in anthology format, unlike the TV series and the 1983 film. It's also unclear if and what kind of connection the movie has to a TV reboot currently in development, this one at the hands of Bryan Singer.
