Joseph Kosinski is kind of a big deal these days. He caught people’s attention with TRON: Legacy and followed that up with the impressive Tom Cruise flick, Oblivion. While both of those films were exercises in style over substance, they have proven that the director knows how to handle the sci-fi genre, which makes the fact that he’s now in talks to direct The Twilight Zone, not all that surprising.
According to THR, the film is being re-developed for Kosinski but as of yet, we have no story details to report on. We also don’t know what kind of structure it will use either. There’s basically no details available on this project except for the fact that Joseph Kosinski is now in talks to direct. And, of course, that it is based on the highly influential TV show created by Rod Sterling.
As I’ve said in previous articles, I’m not the biggest fan of Kosinski but I do think that he delivers on the style front. Oblivion and TRON: Legacy were messy films in terms of structure and storytelling but both delivered a very pleasing experience for the eyes and the ears. Hopefully the director’s third outing will see a bit of an improvement because while he definitely does have talent, he just can’t seem to handle the story elements as well as he should.
