Kosinski To Helm “Tron” Remake

By Garth FranklinTuesday September 11th 2007 12:27pm

Commercial director Joseph Kosinski, who last month signed on to helm the remake of “Logan’s Run” for Warner Bros. Pictures, is in final negotiations to develop and direct a remake of 1982 cult classic “Tron” says The Hollywood Reporter.

The original, about a computer programr thrust into a computer and forced to fight in games he helped create, is remembered for its sci-fi gladiator-style battles and groundbreaking special effects.

“Lost” scribes Eddie Kitsis and Adam Horowitz are penning the script, however story details are being kept secret. Steven Lisberger, who co-wrote and directed the original film, will produce.

I am totally psyhced about this and totally worried it will suck. What’s a computer nerd to do?

  1. I’m with you…I hope and pray they don’t slaughter this remake of a great movie.

  2. In the meantime, check out the TRON comic (http://www.comicbookresources.com/news/newsitem.cgi?id=6557) and the fantastic TRON sequel game (http://buenavistagames.go.com/product/tronPC.html). Here’s to hoping the “remake” is either sequel or a complete re-imagining (a la Battlestar Galactica).
