Director Joseph Kosinski spoke with MTV about what he's imagined for the remake of The Black Hole, what he wants to include from the original 1979 flick and hard "hard" he wants the science to be. "It won't be a sequel like Tron," he told the outlet. "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."
And he knows what he wants to keep from the original. "I saw Black Hole as a little kid. What sticks out most is the robot Maximilian. 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. 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."
Kosinski said that the writer his team has hired, Travis Beecham, will begin working on the script sometime in the coming months, and that he will work from a strong idea for the new movie's storyline. "The title alone has tremendous amount of potential."- MTV. Comment on this Scoop (1)
