WonderCon 2013: Director Joseph Kosinski Updates on ‘TRON: Legacy’ Sequel and ‘The Black Hole’ Remake
With Tom Cruise’s “Oblivion” in theaters next month, director Joseph Kosinski may shift gears towards the ‘TRON: Legacy’ sequel.
Latino-Review was present at a roundtable interview session, in which Kosinski was promoting “Oblivion” to the attendees of WonderCon this weekend.
And the question of a TRON sequel needed to be asked.
Kosinski confirmed that the sequel is still in the works. This is what he said at the roundtable:
“We’ve been working on the story for four years now. The first draft, [in which] Jesse Wigutow is writing it, is supposed to come in the next couple of weeks so the idea we have is really exciting. It has to be pretty exciting enough to get everyone back together. Those are pretty hard movies to make. Legacy was almost three years. We got a really exciting idea for it. As long as the script can kind of deliver on that—the interest is there on the studio side. It’s going to have enough creative juices to have in order to dive back in. We got some exciting ideas—so we’ll see.”
There you have it. The sequel to TRON: Legacy is still in the works.
As for “The Black Hole” remake, it’s still in development. It would be the remake of Walt Disney’s 1979 pic about a missing ship on the edge of a black hole.
“I’ve got Black Hole in development as Disney. And the TRON sequel,” he confirmed.
The full transcript of Kosinski's interview will be published later this weekend.
