'Tron: Legacy' team mount a 'Black Hole' remake
 
Quote:

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 scribe 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.
“Hole” marks one of the first projects to be put into development by new studio chief Rich Ross.
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 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.
The $26 million movie, which featured a menacing red robot named Maximilian and two smaller, friendlier robots, was Disney’s first PG-rated production and helped put the company on the special effects map.

I am so stoked for this one, as I am with Tron: Legacy. Is anybody else?

Meh, that was my ambition. So much for that, then.

Well, it could hardly be much worse than the original...could it?

I guess I'd like to see how this one turns out before determining if I want to see the team tackle The Black Hole as well. A remake is all but inevitable these days for any half-way recognizable title 20-30 years old.

This is the part that encourages me:

The details of the update are being kept secret, though the take does involve grounding the story in the science of a black hole, much more so than in the original.
The original film actually deserves a lot of credit for its scientific accuracy, up to a point. The screenwriters clearly did their research. The depictions of weightlessness were excellent, there was some credible science alluded to in the dialogue, and it was the first film to represent a black hole with an accretion disk (though it made the error of putting an accretion disk around a solitary black hole rather than one in a binary system -- where was the material for the disk coming from with only empty space around it? -- and this error has been slavishly imitated in every subsequent film and TV depiction of black holes ever). There were some conceptual and visual liberties taken, but it wasn't until the finale that it went off the rails into fantasy.

Being nine when it first came out and seeing the black hole look like a galaxy, EVERY TIME I saw a depcition of a galaxy after that, I assumed it was a BH.

I HATED that.

I'm looking forward to this remake, the first one for all its flaws and wild ending is strangely watchable and the atmosphere and setting is fabulous.

I suppose it would be too much to expect John Barry to come out of retirement and reprise his wonderful score though.

I must have watched that 25 times when I was a kid. They really could do a good job with a new version, and talking animal movies still bring in big bucks.

Black Hole was a movie that kinda creeped me out as a kid. The crew being turned into the 'robots' with that weird machine icked me out.

THIRD BEST MOVIE OF ALL TIME.

(And no, it's not sacred. It should be remade!)

How soon before someone says, "I want to remake Revenge of the Nerds IV. Not the first one; the fourth one only"?

The Black Hole is the best bad movie ever made! Doing a re-make of it is just as wrong as re-making a really good film! :)

Ah, I'm not feeling it. Tron is one thing, but The Black Hole was basically a cash in on Star Wars by way of trampling all over Twenty Thousands Leagues Under The Sea. A remake would be more redundancy than I think I could handle. Throw in another thirty years of "inspiration", and this recipe could fit right into the disaster cookbook.

I think this a truly horrrible idea as a remake! Now, if I were to do this I would link it to the orginal with a causality loop. However we have too many novice out their re-inventing Shakespear and subplanting their blandness for brillance.

'Nuff said
