A Tron Sequel?


Joseph Kosinski Helming Tron

Commercial director Joseph Kosinski is in final talks to develop and direct Tron, described as "the next chapter" of Disney's 1982 cult classic, says The Hollywood Reporter. Sean Bailey is producing via Live Planet, as is Steven Lisberger, who co-wrote and directed the original film.


Kosinski, who last month signed on to helm the remake of Logan's Run for Warner Bros. Pictures, will oversee the visual development of the project and have input on the script, which is being written by "Lost" writers Eddie Kitsis and Adam Horowitz.


The original, about a computer programmer thrust into a computer and forced to fight in games he helped create, was the first movie to use computer-generated images instead of models and other optical effects in conjunction with live action. The arcade game based on the movie was so popular that it earned more than the movie.


The trade says that one of the things Kosinski will be doing is working on a sequence involving the movie's Light Cycles to work out his vision for the movie.

Nelson McCormick will direct Screen Gems' remake of The Stepfather, reports Variety.


The story centers on a teenage boy who discovers his new stepfather is a serial killer who has murdered multiple families. The script, by Joe Cardone, takes a modern spin on the 1987 thriller of the same name that starred Terry O'Quinn.


Greg Mooradian and Mark Morgan of Maverick Films are producing.


McCormick recently wrapped production of Screen Gems' Prom Night, which stars Brittany Snow, Idris Elba and Johnathon Schaech and opens April 11.


Seriously.... I can't watch Lost, or X-files reuruns without thinking "Don't trust that guy..... He was the Stepfather!!!"
