Disney plans for a Hole…
> The Black Hole is a 1979 American science fiction film directed by Gary Nelson and produced by Walt Disney Productions. The film stars Maximilian Schell, Robert Forster, Joseph Bottoms, Yvette Mimieux, Anthony Perkins, and Ernest Borgnine, while the voices of the main robot characters are provided by Roddy McDowall and Slim Pickens (both unbilled). The music for the film was composed by John Barry.
While director Joseph Kosinski’s is possibly waiting for the new Star Wars movie – Kosinski, has a whole other space Trek Odyssey that have holes in it that cannot Escape light and he had a few updates to give on his new film; The Black Hole!
Kosinski confirmed it would be a straight-up reboot. “It won’t be a sequel like Tron,” he explained. “This one will be a reimagining. For me, it would be taking ideas and iconic elements that struck me as timeless and cool and preserving them while weaving a new story around them that’s a little more 2001.” He also talked about what elements he planned on keeping from the 1979 original film in his new reimagined film. “I saw Black Hole as a little kid,” said Kosinski. “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.” Kosinski also said that they were in the early scripting stages with writer Travis Beacham and they’re, “getting started on the script in the next few months.
And with that being said my dear reader, will keep you updated as things continue to trend on!
