Disney's The Black Hole remake

http://www.cinemaspy.com/Movie-News/...le-Remake/3994



Sitting down with MTV, Tron Legacy director Joseph Kosinski spoke about his upcoming reimagining of Disney's 1979 film The Black Hole. You may recall that back in January, Kosinski enthused about the project, saying, "We've got a really strong idea and concept for the film. The title alone has a tremendous amount of potential."

Kosinski remains enthused, and hopes to retain as many of the elements from the original film as possible, though cautions that this is a reimagination, and not a sequel. More on that in a moment.

In the original film, the exploration vessel U.S.S. Palomino is returning to Earth after an 18-month search for extra-terrestrial life, when it encounters a ship long thought lost, the U.S.S. Cygnus, hovering near a black hole. The ship is controlled by Dr. Hans Reinhardt (played by Maximilian Schell) and his hulking red robot, Maximillian. But the initial wonderment the Palomino crew experience for the Cygnus and the ship's ability to counteract the irresistible gravitational pull of the awesome black hole, quickly turn to horror as they uncover Reinhardt's diabolical plan to convert his former crew into automatons and send them into the hole.

About 'The Black Hole'

Disney's 1979 production of The Black Hole contained over 550 visual effects shots, including over 150 matte paintings. At the time of its release, the movie also featured the longest computer graphics sequence that had ever appeared in a film. At a cost of $20M, the movie itself ultimately proved to be an expensive embarrassment to the studio.

Fans of the original are doubtless curious about which elements from the original Kosinski intends to maintain. "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.'"

"What sticks out most is the robot Maximilian," he added. "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."

According to Kosinski, the advances in astrophysics over the past 20 years will be factored into the new story. "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."

Are you excited about this remake, or would you prefer Disney left well enough alone and developed a new science fiction property instead? Let us know below.

I think I cried when the old junky robot died.

Ha, seeing this thread reminded me of Space 1999. That was television but it sucked as bad as BH.
