The writers behind Sinister sign up to pen the big screen take on The Outer Limits...

The classic TV series The Outer Limits has been mooted for a big screen outing for a little while now, but there are now tangible signs that it's actually going ahead.

MGM has been pursuing the film, with Mark Victor set to produce it. And now we learn, via The Hollywood Reporter, that C Robert Cargill and Scott Derrickson have been hired to pen the screenplay for the film.

The pair previously wrote Sinister, which Derrickson directed. And it adds more work to an increasingly full slate for Scott Derrickson, who revealed just a few weeks back that he's the man directing Marvel's Doctor Strange movie.

The focus of the film will apparently be the episode Demon With A Glass Hand. That tells the story of a man with a computerised hand who is the sole survivor on planet Earth, travelling back in time to try and work out what happened to humanity. Aliens are involved. But you probably knew that.

There are no timescales that we know of for the movie, but we'll keep you posted as we hear more.
