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.
The film is almost half an hour longer than 'The Force Awakens'.
The actress will no doubt be returning for the long-running FX series.
The film is expected to continue without Mendes' involvement.
