"Tron: Legacy" team mount a "Black Hole" remake (Full Article)

By Borys Kit

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Disney is preparing another expedition into "The Black Hole."

Joseph Kosinski and Sean Bailey, the director and producer of Disney's new "Tron: Legacy," and screenwriter Travis Beacham are teaming up for what is being labeled a reinvention of the 1979 sci-fi film, which at the time was the most expensive movie Disney had ever produced.

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 that 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

HIghlander franchise gets a reboot.

08 Dec 2009

Sci Fi Wire is reporting that the Highlander franchise is about to get a reboot . Again another movie franchise going for the reimaging or rebooting award . You pick the phrase . Every one loves changing the buzz words on me. Once my stomach settles from one they come up with another . I remember them calling it remakes once upon a time. Well the movie is being made by Summit Entertainment , directed by Justin Lin, director of Fast & Furious , and written by Art Marcum and Matt Holloway the writers of Iron Man. Since this is in the preproduction stage there is very little on it except that it is going ahead.

It was fun reading the responces to the news on this article some really passionate statements of enough with reboots. But lets face it . If done right it will make a lot of money. This will also generate for the old series , movies , books , and so forth , some big sales . Much like the really well done Star Trek reboot has done for that franchise. It will be interesting to see how this film production plays out. I was a huge fan of the original movie and the series and may be willing to give it a chance on who and how it is developed.
