Movie News

Oh my God! TRON's Steve Liseberger finally getting behind the camera again!!!

Published at: Sept. 5, 2007, 1:24 a.m. CST

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with some hopefully awesome news. TRON is incredibly beloved by a whole generation of geeks and nerds. I'm one of them. I have a beautiful Australian one-sheet for the movie framed in the bedroom. Chick magnet, right? Anyway, since my earliest days on AICN I've heard about various projects Steve Lisberger (director of TRON) had been trying to get off the ground, including proposed sequels to TRON. Now it looks like he might have caught his break and gotten a chance to direct his first film in almost 20 years. It's not a sequel or a reimagining. It's a new flick called SOUL CODE. Variety has a story on it! Read below for an excerpt!!

The pioneering writer-director of 1982's "Tron" has sold "Soul Code," a futuristic tale he penned at the instigation of IGN hostess Jessica Chobot, to Reliant Pictures for mid-six figures. Lisberger will direct the story of a tech pioneer who has perfected a way to download and transfer a person's memory. Script examines what happens when her memory is placed into a much younger woman's body. "The same way 'Tron' was ahead of its time, this is way ahead of its time," said Reliant topper Thom Mount, who will tap into the shingle's credit facility with Allied Irish Bank to finance the production.

Don't really know enough about it to get super depressed or super excited, but I can say I really want to see what a Lisberger film looks like in today's filmmaking world. What about you guys?

    Tron 2.0

    by Biafras Throw Pillow

    There was talk of a Tron sequel years ago, and it was even mentioned on the 2 disc DVD. Lisberger also directed some summer romance comedy thingy with John Cusack. Can't remember the name

    TRON looks great, I just wish it were a more exciting movie. Once you get over the visuals, it aint very fun.

    Again ahead of its time?

    by DerLanghaarige

    So it means it will tank, because nobody gets what's going on, but 15-25 years later people will love it, because they finally get it?<br> Well, I'm okay with that, I just feel sorry for Mr. Lisberger, who probably has to wait again 25 years till someone gives him again the chance to direct a movie!

    Not a very interesting premise to me...

    by TheRealSeveren

    would much rather see a TRON 2.0 and how could he never get a sequel greenlit? I know the game made more than the movie but over the years its gained alot of respect. Would love to see Jeff Bridges has the head of the company who is now a greedy corporate shill and someone like Justin Long as a bottom rung programmer that finds out employees are being murdered in cyberworld. What if the de-atomizing process that Flynn got caught in is now a standard practice within the company and Long realizes how expendable he really is?

  • Sept. 5, 2007, 1:57 a.m. CST

    No more TRON

    by Gorrister

    Don't get me wrong. I love TRON. But I think the story had a good and solid ending to it. Especially when you consider the TRON was ahead of its time in so many ways. Making another TRON today, it would be difficult to avoid repeating what has already been done before (in TRON and other movies like 13th Floor, Matrix, Lawnmower Man, etc, etc) I think George Lucas has already proved that a beloved movie can easily be ruined. Remember, there IS such a thing as 'too much of a good thing'.

  • Sept. 5, 2007, 2:01 a.m. CST

    WTF? Original? Ahead of it's time?!

    by half vader

    O.K. it's only a few words of a premise, but talk about starting the hype early! So basically it's Big or 13 going on 30 in REVERSE? Whoa. Original! Or the Steve Martin/Lilly Tomlin thing, or Freaky Friday or... And just because the hook is sci-fi doesn't mean much to me. On the other hand I'm jumping the gun, but that bit of hype just instantly put me on the wrong foot. Grr! <p> Biafra, you still drew attention to that fact and used the f word, so, yes you are! ;)

    Sounds like the plot of a porno

    by Mullah Omar

    I mean, come on - "The story of a tech pioneer who has perfected a way to download and transfer a person's memory. Script examines what happens when her memory is placed into a much younger woman's body." This sounds like something straight out of one of the double-digit Emmanuelle films, after they ran out of continents, outer space, and Atlantis.

    "I Will Fear No Evil"

    by Gorrister

    I have to agree with others who say this story is neither original nor 'ahead of its time'. This plot quickly reminds me of an old Heinlein novel called "I Will Fear No Evil", which involves an older mans mind being transferred into the body of a much younger woman. Ok, this story involves two women, but I so far fail to see much difference. (One could also say the same thing was done more recently in the Stargate:Atlantis episode "Duet")

    Yep, we want Tron 2.0

    by Doc_Strange

    I want to revisit that world yet again, especially with all the technological advances since 82. I can't even begin to imagine what it would look like today, except a lot more expensive with more than basic polygonal shapes that still manage to amaze me even today. I think that if Lisberger can get people into the theater for this then Tron will be a no-brainer.

I get my body-switching/possession subgenres mixed up sometimes!<p> And don't get distracted by the sci-fi trappings if that's just the premise people. <p> You really think they're going to give him the budget to explore this in a full sci-fi context? After shit like Slipstream?! Come on, man! If we're not mistaken, the sci-fi part is just the wolf-in-sheep's clothing premise. Hundred bucks this is only set in the "near/recognisable future"! <p> Mullah Omar, that's funny - "like, she's your MOM, dude!"

    Screw this, gimme Tron 2.0

    by Hamtaro_Hentai

    The video game had a decent story, start with that. Jeff Bridges years later is lazy because he's bored. Once again trapped in computer land, now he deals with viruses which are like the computer mafia, not to mention spyware which are like annoying computer insurance salesman. He kicks ass all over the place with the help of Bruce Boxleitner (spelling?) as Tron 2.0, evolved into the ultimate security program. add kung-fu and you... well you have the Matrix 2 without the annoying music video dance scene. And also with recognizers, tanks, and light cycles.

    The TRON 2.0 game woul've been a good sequel...

    by chumpmonkey

    ...if there had been a plot to it. The "story" in that game sucked a big sack of dicks. It meanders all over the place, the characters behave inconsistently, and the wrap-up at the end? There ISN'T one. Someday video game producers will start hiring actual writers for their projects. Until then, we'll get tantalizingly strong subject matter like all the concepts in TRON, but with storytelling that's downright embarassing... like TRON 2.0. You want a real sequel to TRON? Read the comic from Slave Labor Graphics. Why hasn't AICN talked about that? Seems like a no-brainer to me.

    by SPECTRE007

    Seriously, don't wish a Tron remake on us. The 1982 Disney and the 2007 Disney are VERY different places. If you scream for a Tron remake you're effectively screaming for them to ruin it. It'll suck, have a bunch of "hip" phrases and dialogue like the kiddies say, and a theme from Avril Lavigne. And like all Disney Projects in the 21st Century, Tim Allen.

    TRON Is One Of These Movies That We Love...

    by Buzz Maverik

    ...more for how it made us feel than its' actual quality. I saw it when I was in high school and I liked it a lot, liked the music, the lightcycles, etc. and liked that it was about video games (although we wondered why nobody played cool games like Asteroids, Pac Man, Defender, Zaxxon, Tempest, Galaga, Burger Time, Q-Bert, Frogger, Dig Dug, Pole Position,etc. The TRON arcade games were kind of slow and boring). But even in high school, I knew the dialog was sub-STAR WARS and that Bridges was doing a Mark Hamill impression (which was weird because Jeff Bridges is a great, underrated actor).<p>Still, I bought the DVD and my son loves it and I see why I enjoyed it, but I'm not sure how well it'd stand up on its' own if I'd never seen it before.<p>Actually, I sort of forgot about TRON until the MATRIX came out and I was telling a friend about it and he kept saying, "Sounds like TRON." And all I could say was, "Yeah, yer right."

    Tron off the rails same time as the light cycles

    by DarthCorleone

    It looks great, it sounds great, and it spawned one of the best arcade games ever. The film starts off very promising, but once they make their escape in those light cycles, the movie turns into a big yawn almost devoid of action. And I even felt that way when I was a kid and should have loved it in spite of that.

    by Bob Cryptonight

    I was just in my mid-teens when I saw the original in the theater--and even then it was obviously stupid. TRON is NOT intelligent science fiction, people. But for a laugh (and to make a quick buck) I can see why a sequel might, at some point, be a good idea. But hopefully Steve will stay away from it.

    TRON Is A Prophecy Of A New Age In 32k Or Less

    by LaserPants

    And because of that, its the most brilliant sci-fi tale ever created; dwarfing the greatness of the titans of the genre from chimapnzay to chimpanzee. It is the ne-plus-ultra of the whole "Jeebus-proxy goes into computer world to save it" tharng. <br><br>TRON was a celebration of the vidjagame; the arcade game! I saw it when I was, I dunno, 10? And it totally reinforced my lust for throwing money down the hole of various vidjagames all day long at the arcade. Remember when the arcade was the coolest thing ever? I do. Now they barely exist. I mean, excpet for gambling, dance dance revolution, and other giganto-sized games that aren't nearly as satisfying as say, SINISTAR. <br><br>Verily, TRON is a heady exploration of the weighty themes of corporate skullduggery and cyber terrorism before it was even called that even! BDAOOIIOIOIOIOING! Wowzahs! <br><br>Flynn, Jeff Bridges, as the Cambellian Heros Journey Action Figure was actually more like Han Solo than Luke. Like a more slacked out version of the same cocky wiseenheimer whatever guy that Han Solo was. Like if Han Solo was Luke and Neo, only, oh wait, thats right, Neo came much much later. NEO!!! Agent Smith is the real hero, yr just a leather wearing boy-floozy! Anyways... <br><br>The age of coin-up vidjagames and giant rotating headbeasts of the binary id did cause a ruckus most heinous in TRON and its a fugging classic! CLASSIC!!! I mean, yeah, corny, kiddie, ludicrous, retardo, and AWESOMES! Well, you know, heinous for a 2k Atari 2600 cartridge. TRON: DISCS OF TRON!!! Whooooooot!

    by LaserPants

    HOW DARE YOU, SIR! TRON isn't merely just a silly childrens moobie extolling the virtues of the coin-op arcade game experience, it is a mind-expanding prophecy into the future of the soulcode, mindsphere, headhole and BEYOND! EYOND! YOND! OND! ND! D! <br><br> As long as life exists, as long as 2k gaming emulators continue to thrill and chill and spill and ill and other words that have a vowel and two ls, than TRON will be there, hiding behind your eyes, like a Starman, waiting in the sky, who'd like to come to meet us, but fears he'd blow us, I mean, blow our minds.

    TRON is a legend

    by NEUR0M4NCER

    ... but very much of its time. As boogy110 says, it's over. Imagine the talkbacks upon announcement of the vehicle designs? I shuddered at an earlier post; Doc Strange says "... begin to imagine what it would look like today, except a lot more expensive with more than basic polygonal shapes" [br] ARGH! The polygonal designs were a massive part of the film's appeal! Make 'em all pretty, and it might aswell be FF: Spirits Within, or (god forbid) Advent Children. Not that they're entirely cacky films, but they were aimed very squarely at their target audiences. Any successor to Tron will have us idiots to deal with...

    or the litany of knockoffs that dotted the 80s. By the way is it this year's "Aoul Food?"

    Tron Reboot

    by kevinwillis.net

    Rather than try and make a sequel, just do the first movie again, only with better computer animation and hotter chicks in skin-tight circuit suits. Cameos, sure, but hook it by setting it back in 1982. Forget spam and spyware and the Internet--go old school, only with superior CGI. And Wendy Carlos scores. <br><br> Duh-duh-duh-DUN! Duh-duh-duh-DUN! Duh-duh-DUH-duh-duh-DUH-duh-duh-duh-DUN!
