The Twilight Zone movie is finally starting to see some forward motion with the announcement of Christine Lavaf coming on board to write the screenplay.

We've come full circle, in a way: Last night's finale ended with the dearly departed's wife/mother of his child Maggie giving a stirring speech that framed his murder as the loss of a kind man at the hands of a cruel one.
