We reported back in December that the team which is bringing Disney’s Tron Legacy to the big screen would also be taking on the duties of remaking another outdated Disney sci-fi property: The Black Hole.

Well, Tron Legacy director Joseph Kosinski has been talking to the press lately about Tron Legacy and, more recently, about how things are progressing with Black Hole.

Check out what Kosinski had to say to MTV:

“I saw ‘Black Hole’ as a little kid..What sticks out most is the robot Maximilian. The blades and the vicious killing of Anthony Perkins. That freaked me out and that’s definitely going to be an element that will be preserved. The design of the Cygnus ship is one of the most iconic spaceships ever put to film. From a conceptual point of view, we know so much more about black holes now, the crazy things that go on as you approach them due to the intense gravitational pull and the effects on time and space. All that could provide us with some really cool film if we embrace it in a hard science way.”

If you want to read more of Kosinski’s ideas for Black Hole, head on over to MTV.

I never saw the original Black Hole but people do seem to love that Maximilian robot guy (see image above). I’m also digging the fact that Kosinski is going to use modern theory about black holes to construct a (hopefully) kick-ass sci-fi/mystery. Of course, its Disney behind this film, so I’m not expecting Event Horizon or anything, but a few chills and thrills don’t seem like too much to ask for.

Travis Beacham – who wrote the new Clash of the Titans – is handling the script for Black Hole, so if Titans turns out to be a thrilling adventure I’d place a fair bet that Black Hole will be too. And you just know Disney is going to go all digital 3D with the film – however, that could really cool if we get some crazy, twisty/bendy black hole sequences.

We’ll keep an eye on how The Black Hole is coming along; you just be sure to check back here for updates.

  1. I agree Maximilian was sooo kick-ass scared me to death
    can't wait for more news on this one ( hope it does't disapoint), 3D + blackhole= omg

  2. May be good if they keep the robots. I liked Max but Vincent was great too but they will need to find a replacement voice for the late great Roddy McDowell. As for Black Holes…who cares about science…this is Science Fiction and entertainment. Do we really know about Black Holes from so far away? Really? We still havent explored 80% of our Oceans. I would wager we know very little about what is out there.

  4. I'm happy to see that this movie is under consideration for a remake, mostly because it is a subject that only Disney explored to make a movie about. THE BLACK HOLE was a very dark, Gothic and even a little violent movie for Disney. Maximilian vicious killing of Anthony Perkins, a dark funeral held by robots that turn out to be zombie-like humans and even the universe and the black hole itself seem to be a darker place than it should normally be. The only hope they change the very end, make it more like 2001 or CONTACT than a travel through hell and heaven.

    I'll believe this is real when it becomes official, and I see the trailer for this movie coming out at theaters.
