Disney looks to be aiming the remake pen at another one of its properties – this time, The Black Hole, with the Tron: Legacy team of Joseph Kosinski and Sean Bailey and Clash Of The Titans scribe Travis Beacham involved. Although the original isn’t considered a classic (and is often derided) it did gain a cult following.
JMS recently gave a group interview regarding the upcoming Warner Bros. remake of Forbidden Planet, giving some hints of what is to come. Among those things mentioned – more backstory about how we get to the point of the original movie (such as the landing of the Bellerophon), and perhaps leaving some space for the possibility of some form of sequel – possibly as a franchise. And if you’re worried about it being transformed from a cerebral (both in plot and story) film to an action flick, “There’s a little more action, but it’s still a strong character piece…You need to have that dynamic still in place to respect the original and the source material. So there’s a fair amount of talking, but there’s some really cool action pieces in it as well,” according to JMS.
