Despite its future looking as bleak as the contents of European arthouse cinema, MGM is developing a film adaptation of classic 60’s sci-fi anthology series “The Outer Limits” says Variety.
Scribes Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan (“Feast,” “Saw” series) began work on the script last month with their draft due in October. An MGM spokesman claims the pair were hired well before the studio’s current financial woes.
It’s unsure what format the project will take. Much like “The Twilight Zone”, the series was an anthology of discrete story episodes usually a plot twist at the end.
The show was revived in 1995 on Showtime and later the Sci-Fi Channel. Mark Victor, Jon Shestack and Jeremy Stein are producing the film adaptation.
