Rumor has it that two talented actors could be joining the cast of Jordan Peele's reboot of “The Twilight Zone." According to The Hashtag Show, who says that Jacob Tremblay (The Predator, seen above) and Riz Ahmed (Venom, seen below) have reportedly been offered roles.
The actors would appear in episode 3 tentatively titled “Kid President“. Tremblay would play the kid president, while Ahmed would play his campaign manager.
The new series will be produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Jordan Peele’s Monkeypaw Productions and Simon Kinberg’s Genre Films. Jordan Peele, Simon Kinberg and Marco Ramirez will serve as executive producers for the series and collaborate on the premiere episode. Win Rosenfeld and Audrey Chon will also serve as executive producers.
The original “The Twilight Zone” took viewers to another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. It was a journey into a wondrous land of imagination for five years on CBS, from 1959-1964. The godfather of sci-fi series, the show explored humanity’s hopes, despairs, prides and prejudices in metaphoric ways conventional drama could not.
The series is set for a 2019 premiere.
