Logan's Run Helmer Joseph Kosinski to Direct Tron


The man is reported to be in final talks to assume the duties for Walt Disney Pictures.

Works begin to line up for commercial director Joseph Kosinski. Already signed to helm Warner Bros. Pictures' "Logan's Run", the man now is in final negotiations to carry out the same duties on "Tron" for Walt Disney Pictures, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Described as "the next chapter" of the studio's 1982 cult classic, the project has signed "Lost" scribes Eddie Kitsis and Adam Horowitz to pen the script with Sean Bailey and Steven Lisberger both producing, the latter being the co-writer and director of the original. Kosinski, in the meantime, is said to also oversee the visual development of the project and have input on the screenplay besides his helming stint.

Remembered for its sci-fi gladiator-style battles and groundbreaking special effects, the 1982 "Tron" tells the story about a computer programmer who gets thrust into a computer and forced to fight in games he helped create. Pic was considered to be the first that used computer-generated images instead of models and other optical effects in conjunction with live action.

Plan to develop the sequel had actually been discussed since 2002 with Lisberger admitting the project "goes back in time and takes another fork on the freeway." This was also hinted in the new documentary that was filmed for the 20th-anniversary DVD, released in January 2002.
