The Black Hole Remake Coming from Disney

Tron: Legacy has gotten Disney all excited about resurrecting its almost forgotten and often not successful early forays into big-budget science fiction. Next up is a reboot of The Black Hole, according to Michael Hickerson at Slice of Sci Fi.

Joseph Kosinski, director of Tron: Legacy, wants to direct a remake of The Black Hole, the 1979 outer-space thriller that Disney gummed up with annoying robots and scenery-chewing acting. (Other than that, actually, there are some pretty good points in the movie.) The new version will reportedly retain some elements of the old version -- including the unique design of the big ship, the Cygnus -- but will strive to be more scientifically accurate.
