Joseph Kosinski Directing Tron - The Next Chapter
First off, Tron: The Next Chapter is NOT the official name, that's just what it's being referred to. Officially the title right now is just Tron and it's supposedly "the next chapter" of the classic 1982 film (of the same name). Commercial director Joseph Kosinski has been set to direct and Steven Lisberger, who co-wrote and directed the original film, will be producing. What is this and why are the working on a sequel/remake? Unfortunately we don't have the answer to those important questions, but we'll try and bring as much information out as possible.
One of the aspects Kosinski will be monitoring is the visual development of the project as well as input on the script, which is being written by "Lost" writers Eddie Kitsis and Adam Horowitz. Since the original Tron was such a groundbreaking movie because of its CGI, I'm certain that they're pushing for an equal change with this Tron sequel. It's unlikely they'll achieve anything that extraordinary, but who really knows, they might have something big up their sleeves.
One sequence that Kosinski is currently working on involves the Light Cycles in order to work out his vision for the film. I'd say that's a good place to start. I have a soft spot for Tron being a video game and movie geek myself, and yet I'm not sure what to think of this. I can't really see it being that groundbreaking, but I'll reserve my thoughts until we actually know more.
