TRON remake moving forward
Joseph Kosinski has already been signed up to Direct and polish the script for the Logan's Run remake, but word today is that he's in negotiations and not far from signing up to work on the new TRON film, according to the news he's going to work on the visual development and the script for the film.
As well as Kosinski Steven Lisberger, who co-wrote and directed the original 1982 cult classic, is producing and the script is currently being written by Lost Producers and Writers Eddie Kitsis and Adam Horowitz. Recently we heard that Steven Lisberger had sold a new script to Hollywood called Soul Code, but it looks like he's getting involved in the remake of his film too.
That's the word from The Hollywood Reporter. What's really interesting is that the original Director is onboard for this new Disney film and two of the writers from Lost are working on the script. As much as I hate the idea of remakes of cult films that can only seem to be improved with new effects, I am feeling slightly drawn to this project now that these talents are announced.
The original TRON was the story of a man who is transferred into a high end computer and discovers that the programs are real and doing battle inside and entire computer world. Sounds fantastical and it was. TRON is a superb film starring Jeff Bridges and Bruce Boxleitner as well as a number of other well known actors.
I just wonder if they really can bring something new to the film and make the remake worthwhile.
