Outer-Limits-LogoMGM has been in the process of reviving some of their bigger properties. Today they’ve hired the team behind Sinister to bring The Outer Limits to the big screen.

THR reports that Scott Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill will write the script, which will be based on the classic episode, Demon With a Glass Hand: “The duo will be tackling time travel, alien invasion and genetic manipulation in adapting the episode, which focused on a man with no memory beyond the last 10 days and a computerized hand who discovers he is from the future. The man is being hunted by an alien race who see him as key to their survival but he soon discovers a more complex and terrifying truth.”

Originally airing from 1963 to 1965, the anthology TV series was much more sci-fi focused than The Twilight Zone and featured many memorable creatures and episodes, including The Architects of Fear and The Zanti Misfits. If you haven’t had a chance to watch the original TV series, I highly recommend  it. It may seem like this project not moving forward any time soon with Scott Derrickson busy on Sinister 2 and Doctor Strange, but it has been said that he’ll be working on The Outer Limits script while preparing direct Doctor Strange for Marvel.
