“You unlock this door with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension: a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind. You’re moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas; you’ve just crossed over into the Twilight Zone.”
Those famous words (or some variation of them — the intro changed every season) were uttered at the beginning of each ‘Twilight Zone’ episode by creator Rod Serling. Now, the legendary sci-fi figure will be getting his due with a biopic.
The movie will be written by ‘Wall Street’ scribe Stanley Weiser, and he will have no shortage of material to work with. Before Serling became a TV icon, he was a paratrooper and member of the demolition squad in the Army in WWII. Many of the horrific things he saw over there went on to influence ‘The Twilight Zone.’
