“Tron Legacy” director Joseph Kosinski and producer Sean Bailey are planning a remake/reboot of Disney 1979 sci-fi epic “The Black Hole” for Disney and Idealogy says Heat Vision Blog.
The original followed a group of space explorers aboard the USS Palomino who come across a lost ship, the USS Cygnus, hovering outside a black hole.
Inside the Cygnus, the explorers meet a scientist, commanding an army of faceless robots, who explains his crew deserted him as he planned to go through the black hole.
The explorers soon discover that the robots are the remnants of the former crew and that the scientist has no intention of letting them leave.
‘Hole’ was famous at the time for being both the company’s first PG-rated production and what was then the most expensive film the studio ever produced at $26 million.
Travis Beacham (“Killing on Carnival Row,” “Clash of the Titans”) will pen the script for the new film which will include the red robot Maximilian and be much more grounded in real science about black holes. Other details are being kept secret.
