The Minds Behind 'Sinister' Are Bringing Back 'The Outer Limits'

Scott Derrickson is a busy man. He has Deliver Us from Evil coming out in a few weeks, he'll be producing Sinister 2 later this year, and he just landed directing duties on Marvel's Doctor Strange. But that's not busy enough, so he and his Sinister cowriter C. Robert Cargill have just landed writing duties on a new The Outer Limits movie.

MGM is producing the feature version of the classic sci-fi anthology series, though this movie won't contain multiple stories. It'll actually be a single, feature-length adaptation of Harlan Ellison's fantastic episode "Demon with a Glass Hand," about a man who is sent into the past in order to save the future.

"Demon with a Glass Hand" is a pretty cool story involving aliens hunting a man through time and space; a man whose hand has been replaced with a computer that will guide him on his mission to save mankind. That's precisely the kind of out-there sci-fi we love to see Hollywood dive into.

For the curious, you can actually watch the original 1964 episode of The Outer Limits over on Hulu. And here are the show's fantastic opening credits, which we sincerely hope make it into the movie somehow.
