Twilight Zone: The Movie

Ken Levine has hinted that the 'Twilight Zone' film is going to be axed much to the disappointment of fans of the cult TV series and the 1983 film

Ken Levine is not sure if his 'Twilight Zone' movie will go ahead.

The 50-year-old American video game developer - who created ground-breaking first person action adventure 'BioShock' - said his movie project which was first announced last April, is currently "in flux" and that he's not 100 per cent committed to making it.

At the time Levine admitted he was writing and directing the interactive live-action film and described it as a "side project".

Speaking at a Q&A at EGX Rezzed in London, when asked about the progress of 'Twilight Zone', Levine said: "Right now it's at the stage where I'm still deciding whether this is something that I want to be doing."

The movie was to be inspired by the 1983 'Twilight Zone: The Movie' horror which was produced by Steven Spielberg and John Landis as a theatrical version of the original TV series which ran from 1959 and 1964 created by Rod Serling. It was later revived in the 1980s and then again in the early 2000s for short runs.

The original film stars Vic Morrow, Scatman Crothers, Kathleen Quinlan and John Lithgow with Dan Aykroyd and Albert Brooks in the prologue segment.

During his Q&A, Levine also revealed to fans that currently his main focus is the debut game from his new studio Ghost Story Games.

He added: "While we believe our new games will have strong appeal to fans of 'BioShock', our new focus allows us to craft experiences where the gameplay is as challenging as the stories."

According to the studio's website, its first game will be "a new immersive sci-fi game with RPG elements."
