'Twilight Zone': Bryan Singer Spearheading TV Reboot

A new "Twilight Zone" could be coming to TV, thanks to "X-Men" director Bryan Singer. According to EW, Singer and CBS TV Studios are in early development stages to bring "The Twilight Zone" back to TV.

Singer -- who directed NBC's "Mockingbird Lane," which was the network's attempt to reboot "The Munsters" -- is attached to executive produce the project. There are no writers or network or attached to the series.

"The Twilight Zone" first aired from 1959-64 on CBS. The Rod Sterling anthology series featured a variety of famous actors very early on in their careers, like Leonard Nimoy and Robert Redford. The series focused on strange and unusual events and often had a moralistic ending. It was revived for three seasons that ran between 1985-89. A third revival launched in 2002 on UPN with Forest Whitaker as the host. It lasted one season.

Reboots are all over TV these days. Besides NBC's "Mockingbird Lane," the network is also working on a remake of "Ironside." On CBS, "Hawaii Five-0" has been a success and Vince Vaughn is behind a modern-day "Brady Bunch" sitcom. TNT brought "Dallas" back to life with many of the original stars, including the late Larry Hagman, and found ratings success.
