Tron: Legacy Director Will Follow It With Bourne Versus Aliens
The buzz surrounding director Joseph Kosinski’s Tron: Legacy is already palpable, and the movie’s still months away. After Disney’s big, planned, Comic Con promotion, it’s sure to reach fever pitch, but Kosinski’s not waiting around. He’s already lining up his next sci-fi project. Here’s what THR says he’s up to:
New Regency is developing “Archangels,” a sci-fi spec from newcomer Andrew Will for “Tron Legacy” helmer Joe Kosinski (pictured) to direct. Ridley and Tony Scott will produce via their Scott Free banner along with Kosinski.
The script is set in the near future and is described as a “Bourne”-style thriller crossed with alien elements. The protagonist is part of an elite force that is tasked with tracking aliens who get past Earth’s defense system.
It’s worth noting that he’s also supposed to be developing a remake of The Black Hole. That one actually makes more sense, since it means continuing to work with Disney on revitalizing an outdated studio sci-fi property. I’m willing to bet he gets that going first, but we’ll see where things stand after Legacy. Who knows, it could suck and maybe we won’t to see more of him? Nah, that’s impossible. It’s Tron: Legacy.
