Joeseph Kosinski's new Tom Cruise starrer Oblivion, opening tomorrow, is the rarest of all things, a big budget scifi film aimed squarely at adults. While the trailers might seem like they give away the whole movie, I assure you they only scratch the surface. Things get really weird and far more ambitious than the I Am Legend-style one sheet implies. Last week, Collider sat down with writer/director Kosinski to talk about his film. During the interview, Krosinski discussed the challenges of making an original idea into a major film, designing the film for IMAX, shooting in 8k resolution on the new Sony CineAlta F65 camera and more. Joseph Kosinski: He was attached to some sequels and remakes, but somehow he was able to make a big budget, original idea. Talks about how this was originally going to be his first film Oblivion is based on a comic/graphic novel. »

Joseph Kosinski doesn't want you to know anything about "Oblivion." Nothing. Sure, you probably know that it starts with Tom Cruise and that he's on a wasteland of Earth sometime in the future. But, if the director of "Oblivion" (who also directed 2010's "Tron: Legacy") gets his way, that's all you will know before you see it.
He knows that revealing too much could ruin viewers' experience, but also knows the risks of not revealing some of the twists and turns that might whet a movie-going appetite.
Here's what you can find out from the trailers: Tom Cruise stars at Jack Harper, and 60 years after mankind's war with an alien race, Earth is uninhabitable. Harper, who is basically part of an Earth cleanup crew, spends his days repairing unmanned drones that have been damaged by the remaining aliens, while the rest of human society has migrated to Saturn's largest moon, »

Tron 3 is currently in the script and concept design phase of development. Disney still has yet to give it an official greenlight, but that will eventually come. In the mean time, it's just gearing up for pre-production. Director Joseph Kosinski is currently making the press rounds for his new sci-fi film Oblivion, but everyone also wants to know about Tron 3.
Empire Magazine caught up with the filmmaker recently and asked about the title. He says they have one, but won't reveal it. As of right now the working title is TR3N. He's then pressed for a little more information on the film project, and this is what he said...
Tron 3 delivers on the promise of Tron Legacy, particular the final scenes. There's a big clue there as to where we'll go with the next one. There's some characters we establish at the beginning of Tron Legacy »

Last week I got to see Oblivion before pretty much anyone which was an absolute privilege as I thought the movie looked absolutely stunning. I’m still not sold on the story but am very eager to see the film again. After seeing the movie, I got to sit down and talk to Director Joseph Kosinski about the process of making his latest creation. He originally penned the idea for it in 2005 so this has been a long time in the making and it’s great to see his latest project hitting both standard and IMAX cinemas today.
In the interview we find out about his work changing it from a concept to the big screen, working with his cast which includes Tom Cruise, Olga Kurylenko, Andrea Riseborough, Morgan Freeman and also to him about working with Daniel Simon on the concept art for the movie and where he currently is with Tron: Legacy. »

In town to talk Oblivion, Joseph Kosinski also has an eye firmly fixed on his follow-up to Tron Legacy. The third in the Tron franchise is currently at the script stage and gearing up for pre-production and no doubt a world of funky, space-aged design work."Tron 3 delivers on the promise of Tron Legacy, particular the final scenes," elaborates the director. "There's a big clue there as to where we'll go with the next one. There's some characters we establish at the beginning of Tron Legacy who have a much larger role in Tron 3." Sounds like Cillian Murphy's Edward Dillinger Jr. will have some work to do next time around, following in the footsteps of his previous work playing a son-of-a-ceo role in Inception... Click below for the video itself. And will Tron 3 build on Tron Legacy's five IMAX sequences? "I love IMAX as a format," adds Kosinski, »
We recently spoke to Joseph Kosinski (well Tom spoke to him, I was in man flu prison) about Oblivion and Tom asked him about Tron 3. The director said that they are working on the script right now and that they have an exciting idea that should deliver on the promise at the end of Tron Legacy. Listen for yourself below. »

[Update: We know who the new writer for The Black Hole remake is.]
Tron: Legacy director Joseph Kosinski has been working the press junket circuit to promote his sci-fi project Oblivion starring Tom Cruise, which begins its theatrical run later this month. Hence, earlier this week, we received an update on the status of Tron 3 (which is developing under the “code name” TR3N) – in the shape of Kosinski’s announcement that a revised script draft is on schedule to be finished within the next two weeks.
However, a third Tron live-action movie isn’t the only gestating project Kosinski is currently working on for Disney. Today we finally have an update on his remake of The Black Hole, which the filmmaker has been linked to around three to four years now.

While divisive when it was released, many have warmed to Tron: Legacy after taking against it on first viewing. It's a flawed film with some ludicrous dialogue, but it delivers a decent amount of spectacle. A third Tron film has been in discussion since shortly after Legacy was released, but chatter has started up again over the weekend as director Joseph Kosinski has been discussing the project, while as he's been doing the promotional rounds for Oblivion.
Here's what he had to say to Collider: "I think I'm two weeks away from getting the draft. This is a story we've been working on since 2009, so that's four years now. I'm really excited about the idea we have for it. I think it delivers on the promise that both Tron movies »
A new featurette from Oblivion has been released.
Cruise plays former Marine commander Jack Harper, who is stationed on Earth and assigned with extracting the planet's few remaining resources.
After he rescues a beautiful young stranger (Olga Kurylenko) from a crashed spacecraft, Harper begins to question everything he knows about his mission and the war.
A sequel to Tron: Legacy has been in development at Disney for a number of years now, but as director Joseph Kosinski has been occupied with Oblivion the sequel has never left the scripting stage. With Oblivion set to open later this month Kosinski can now turn his attention back to Tron, and the director [...]

Tron: Legacy falls somewhere between the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie and John Carter, as far as successful Disney live-action tentpoles go. The Tron sequel earned mixed reviews for having an impressive 3D CGI surface that covers (compensates?) for a muddled sci-fi story and subtext, but it earned just north of its $170 million budget stateside (and more than doubled that tally at the global box office), so the Mouse House has slowly, but steadily, been gathering together the ingredients necessary to cook a proper followup.
The studio has allowed the Tron 3 (a.k.a. the Tron: Legacy sequel) screenplay to be passed around and exchanged between a few different writers over the years since Legacy released, in addition to letting director Joseph Kosinski step out and make another futuristic sci-fi blockbuster altogether, in the form ...

Speaking with I Am Rogue at WonderCon 2013, director Joseph Kosinski talk in depth about his anticipated sci-fi epic Oblivion, which stars Tom Cruise. He goes into detail about his inspiration for the story, which he adapted into an unpublished graphic novel, and he says that previously directing Tron: Legacy helped make the film possible. He also talks about casting Morgan Freeman in the same movie as Cruise, and he finally touches on the possibility of a sequel if the first film is successful. For the full interview (in which he updates on Tron 3 and discusses deleted scenes for Oblivion), click the source link below. On Whether Tron: Legacy Made Oblivion Possible: "Yea, I don’t think this movie exists without Tron for sure. But still there are not a lot of directors out there making original science fiction. An original story in a world which is »
While promoting "Oblivion" at WonderCon, director Joseph Kosinski answered some questions about a third "Tron" film, something that's been rumored ever since "Tron Legacy" hit theaters in 2010. When asked if it feels like "Tron 3" will happen, Kosinski replied: "Yeah, it absolutely does," he replied. "I'm two weeks away from getting the draft [of the script]. This is a story we've been working on since 2009, so that's four years now." Kosinski continued: "I'm really excited about the idea that we have. I think it delivers on the promise that both 'Tron' movies have made. It opens the movie up, in a way that I think is going to give it a much broader appeal. But, it's all about the script and making sure that that story is compelling enough to get all of us back together. Those movies are hard to make. It's a two-and-a-half to three-year journey. We've got a great writer on it, »
Kosinski is awaiting the arrival of the script for Disney's follow-up, and is hopeful that the project will go ahead.
"This is a story we've been working on since 2009, so that's four years now," he told Collider. "I'm really excited about the idea that we have for it.
"I think it delivers on the promise that bothTron movies have made. It opens the movie up, in a way that I think is going to give it a much broader appeal.
"Whereas Tron [Legacy] ultimately catered most to Tron fans, this idea broadens it some more, in really exciting ways. But, it's all about the script and making sure that that story is compelling enough to get all of us back together."
Kosinski revealed that the film has the working title of Tr3n. »
With WonderCon happening this weekend, Universal brought out director Joseph Kosinski to talk to a few press outlets about his sci-fi action-adventure flick Oblivion, starring Tom Cruise and Morgan Freeman, and out in theaters on April 19th. While we will run the full interview soon, we wanted to share what the filmmaker had to say about a third Tron film today. Expanding on what he already told us in an interview back in December 2012, Kosinski said that it absolutely feels like Disney wants to make it happen, that he’s two weeks away from getting a draft of the script, that they’ve been working on this story since 2009, and that the story will open up the world and give it a much broader appeal. He also said that the movie will have a title that is not just Tron 3, but that it’s not officially set in stone yet. »

Arrived at WonderCon to promote Oblivion, ended up talking about Tron: Legacy sequel… Almost like a perfect oneliner for ‘Bad luck Brian’ meme – if this could be called ‘bad luck’, heheh. I am talking, of course, about director Joseph Kosinski, whose sci-fi epic almost ended up at Disney’s, but they passed it – deeming the subject matter to be too adult. No such barriers with Tron: Legacy, which earned $400M worldwide on a $170M production budget, back in 2010. Disney expected a bigger box-office earnings (evil empire!) from the Tron sequel, which is why three years have passed since Legacy and we’re hearing only...

Sequels are awesome, plain and simple. Returning to familiar characters and worlds we love is like covering yourself with a warm blanket, although when a sequel is bad it can be like a blanket covered in potato bugs and lice. Studios love sequels because seven times out of ten they open huge, no matter how good they are.
With that in mind, here's 50 of your favorite titles all preparing to get new installments. Some of them are deep into pre-production while others have barely gotten out of the pitch stages, but you'll be salivating at the thought of some of these sweet babies finally making their way to the screen.
Status: The law of diminishing returns seems to have caught up to Paramount's annual license to print money, and even though the last "Paranormal" grossed half its predecessor, producer Jason Blum is gonna »

Work on Tron 3 has been progressing steadily since the project was first announced, shortly after the release of Tron: Legacy. Though the first sequel received generally mixed reviews, it made just north of $400 million worldwide and Disney has been teasing us with minor threequel details ever since – including confirmation of director Joseph Kosinski and star Garrett Hedlund returning.
Until now, however, we haven’t heard much from Olivia Wilde, who played Kevin Flynn’s apprentice in Tron: Legacy. Her character, Quorra, was an Iso (Isomorphic Algorithm – part of a race of computer programs that evolved naturally rather than through human design) living off the Grid due to her outlaw status. Without spoiling the end of Tron: Legacy, let’s just say that something very interesting happens to Quorra that would definitely require some ...

Not too long ago, it was confirmed that a third Tron film was moving forward at Disney, with a new writer on board and cast members from 2010's Legacy signed on. Director Joseph Kosinski said that the sequel will have to be their Empire Strikes Back in order for him to return. In an interview with Hit Fix while promoting The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, Olivia Wilde talked about her returning as Quorra in Tron 3. She doesn't share any updates on where the film is exactly in its development, but she does look back on Legacy and how its establishment of its characters (particularly Quorra) would allow for "some fun" to occur in future adventures. "I loved the collaborative effort that was Tron, and I think now with the time to really focus on character development after we've established so much exposition, we can really have some fun. And so, »
