A Classic from The Twilight Zone to Come Back




    Summit Entertainment has put the sci-fi thriller Countdown into production. Countdown is based on a classic episode of The Twilight Zone titled Death Trip, by Richard Matheson.

    Michael Brandt was chosen to direct Countdown, Countdown being his directorial debut. According to Summit production chief Erik Feig, Michael Brandt was the choice to go with because he outfits larger interest in supporting new talent. Brandt is in the processes of rewriting the screenplay along with Derek Hass, whom both were involved in the films 3:10 to Yuma and 2 Fast 2 Furious, and they also wrote the screenplay to the upcoming adaption Wanted from Universal.

    Death Trip revolves around a group of astronauts who land on a planet only to find a crashed spaceship and corpses that frighteningly resemble their own. They then must piece together where they are and whether they might in fact already be dead.
