MGM Reaches From The Inner Mind To "The Outer Limits"

MGM has hired "Saw" writers Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan to develop a big screen adaptation of the 1960's alien TV series "The Outer Limits", for producers Jon Shestack ("Ghosts of Girlfriends Past") and Jeremy Stein.

Cale Boyter will oversee for MGM.

"The Outer Limits" anthology aired in black and white on ABC from 1963 to 1965.

Each show would begin with the 'Control Voice', played over visuals of an oscilloscope:

"...There is nothing wrong with your television set. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission. If we wish to make it louder, we will bring up the volume. If we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a whisper. We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical. We can roll the image, make it flutter. We can change the focus to a soft blur or sharpen it to crystal clarity. For the next hour, sit quietly and we will control all that you see and hear. We repeat: there is nothing wrong with your television set. You are about to participate in a great adventure. You are about to experience the awe and mystery which reaches from the inner mind to... The Outer Limits..."
