Daft Punk's 'Tron Legacy' Score: KCRW Interview + New Preview
Briefly: There's a lot going on with Tron Legacy right now, but one aspect we're happy to always mention is the soundtrack, created by Daft Punk. There have been a couple recent updates related to Daft Punk and the Tron Legacy score worth mentioning, so here we go. First, MySpace has a massive 21-minute preview of the soundtrack, but I say stick it out and listen to the whole on December 7th. Next, LA-based radio station KCRW interviewed director Joe Kosinski and talked at length about the score and choosing/working with Daft Punk. I've featured one of the videos, but all of them can be found on SlashFilm or KCRW.com. Enjoy!
Watch the first part of KCRW's chat with Joe Kosinski about the Tron Legacy score:
Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund), the tech-savvy son of Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges), looks into his father's disappearance and is pulled into the digital world of Tron where his father has been living for 25 years.
Tron Legacy is directed by first-time filmmaker Joseph Kosinski. The screenplay was co-written by Adam Horowitz ("Lost"), Richard Jefferies (Blood Tide, Living Hell), Edward Kitsis ("Lost"), and the director of the original movie, Steven Lisberger. This first got the greenlight last year because this early teaser played well at Comic-Con. Disney is bringing Tron Legacy to theaters in 3D starting December 17th. Game on!
