Scott Derrickson to Helm New ‘Outer Limits’ Film

Source: ABC

There is nothing wrong with your movie screen; do not attempt to adjust the picture. Classic sci-fi series The Outer Limits really is in the works to come to the big screen for MGM.

The film will be helmed by writer-director Scott Derrickson, who recently joined Doctor Strange as director.

The Outer Limits is a cult classic television show that ran from 1963 to 1965 on ABC. Each episode was a self-contained science-fiction story – a format similar to that of The Twilight Zone. The show was revived to air on Showtime from 1995 to 1999, and then from 1999 to 2002 on Syfy (then called the Sci-Fi Channel).

The new Outer Limits feature will be based on the episode “Demon With a Glass Hand,” which was written by Harlan Ellison. The plot involves time travel, aliens, and radioactive plagues — oh my!
