Disney's Black Hole up for a remake?
Sci-Fi news site io9 reports that Tron Legacy director Joseph Kosinski is heading up this remake of the 1979 Disney movie.
from the site (via IGN):
"Tron Legacy director Joseph Kosinski is heading up this remake of the 1979 Disney movie. Actually, he says it's not a remake - it's a rebuilding of the core idea with more of a hard science approach that reflects the huge amount we've learned about black holes in the last 31 years. The movie is currently in the outlining stage. When asked whether he'd keep the ambiguous, metaphysical ending to the original, Kosinski explained the different direction in which he'd like to go:
It's one of the trippier endings I've ever seen in a movie, especially for a big Disney movie to end like that one did. But I think the notion of religion and science and philosophy… there's a lot of cool, interesting things to explore there. That's the cool thing about black holes. Even when you read about what's written about them from a science point of view, it almost sounds like science fiction or philosophy at some point because it's just so… it's nothing anyone has ever experienced firsthand. It's really a theoretical place and there's a lot of opportunity to do something really cool. But I think the approach would be a little more grounded than the original film was."
As long as they don't mess with VinC.E.N.T or Maximillian, i'm up for it.
