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.
Maximillian Schell as Dr. Hans Reinhardt in a scene from 'The Black Hole' (1979).

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.

Still, though. I loved the score, the two little trashcan robots (one voiced by Roddy McDowall IIRC and the other with a cowboy accent and all beaten-up), the scary Maximillian, and the (for the era) cutting-edge special effects.

But they need a remake of this like a fish needs a bicycle.
think it was Slim Pickens

yeah did not like this movie
badly conceived and executed star wars "inspired" POS

but if you gotta do a re"imaging" do it of a movie that sucked
not a great or even good one

Yeah, as a little kid, I loved the movie, but I was so sucked into anything sci-fi thanks to Star Wars at the time, I couldn't have cared less about the quality. It didn't hold up over time, to be sure.

Look at it this way - if they're going to re-make it, there's nowhere to go but up in all phases of the flick.

Seriously, it sucked ass. As bad as the Star Trek movie was that year (Star Trek: The Motion Picture), TBH was 100x worse.

Maybe 1,000 times worse. Simply laughable. Like Mystery Science Fiction 3000 laughable.
heh, its an odd curiosity for sure. If i remember right, it was Disney first PG rated movie?

If nothing else the production design and special effects (for the time) were wicked cool.

I think it's a good concept and is the kind of film that SHOULD be remade, so they can get it RIGHT this time.

Thats kind of how this new Tron movie feels. Its technically a sequel, but also is a reboot, reimagining, remake as well.

I only ever saw this first run when I was 8, and all I can remember was weird, then boring. Not a lot of reference at that age, but I recall it being one of the worst movies I'd seen to that point, and we went weekly to the Crest Drive-In, so I had seen movies.

Flashback to being sorely disappointed in 'The Nude Bomb.'

Looks like this isn't dead yet.

"Prometheus" co-writer Jon Spaihts has been tapped to write the reinvention, which has "Oblivion" filmmaker Joe Kosinski attached to direct.

Disney’s reinvention of its 1979 sci-fi movie The Black Hole is getting a new engine.

Prometheus co-writer Jon Spaihts has been hired to kickstart the project, which has Joe Kosinski -- the filmmaker behind the upcoming Tom Cruise sci-fi pic Oblivion -- attached to direct.

Justin Springer, who produced Kosinski’s feature debut Tron: Legacy, is producing Black Hole.

Black Hole was the most expensive movie Disney ever made when it was released in 1979 with a cast that included Maximilian Schell, Anthony Perkins, and Ernest Borgnine.

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 that 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.

Disney put the remake into development in 2009. Travis Beacham was writing the script at the time, and Kosinski was working on the project while prepping the Tron reboot.

Among the signature pieces of the original movie were a threatening red robot named Maximillian as well as two kindlier robots named V.I.N.CENT and

Well, at the very least, the SFX should be amazing.

I loved the original. Was a kid, so I loved the cheesy robot characters. I think I was about 8 when I saw it. Looking forward to a more grown up version. Hope it's good.

I was so excited to get to see Vincent at Crown Centre the Christmas season after the movie.

I loved the original, but it hasnt aged well. A reboot of this if done right could be pretty cool.
