Walt Disney is planning on bringing back another one of their 1970s properties and it seems they're hiring the men behind Tron: Legacy to lead it. HR's Heat Vision blog reports the studio has tasked the "Legacy" team--director Joseph Kosinski, screenwriter Travis Beacham and producer Sean Bailey--to reinvent their 1979 sci-fi film, The Black Hole.
Plot Concept: 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 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. Maximilian also would return.
