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

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.
Tron: Legacy is a sequel, not a remake; secondly, having your protagonists be space explorers come upon a lost ship captained by a super-smart madman reminiscent of Captain Nemo is not the same as Star Wars by a longshot: it's more reminiscent of classic hard science fiction novels and Star Trek (the U.S.S. Palomino was exploring space like the U.S.S. Enterprise did on TV). Star Wars had little to do with it-it was more like Twenty Thousands Leagues Under The Sea by way of 2001: A Space Odyssey mixed with Star Trek (a recent movie, Supernova as well as Sunshine were also like this, and so also was Solaris.)
