The man who brought Tron back to the big screen is in talks to direct Leonardo DiCaprio's Twilight Zone movie. Joseph Kosinski is in final negotiations to take over the project, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
DiCaprio and his business partner at Appian Way, Jennifer Davisson Killoran, will produce the film adaptation of sci-fi icon Rod Serling's cult TV series which ran from 1959 to 1964 and then again from 1985 to 2002, and spawned a 1983 film.
Kosinski, who won acclaim as the director of Tom Cruise's Oblivion, is currently attached to film a Tron sequel for Disney.
On the heels of news that Leonardo DiCaprio may star as J. Edgar Hoover for Clint Eastwood comes word on another DiCaprio project.
Oliver Stone is reportedly jumping in to develop and possibly direct Travis McGee, based on the fictional detective created by John D. MacDonald. DiCaprio would play the title character.
Peter Chernin's Chernin Entertainment is attached to produce with Amy Robinson and Appian Way's DiCaprio and Jennifer Davisson Killoran.
The film would use the storyline from the first of MacDonald's 21 books, The Deep Blue Goodbye, in which the beach-bum salvage consultant searches for a World War II treasure.
Dana Stevens and Kario Salem wrote the screenplay.
