Filmmaker Says He Would Absolutely Direct A "Tron: Legacy" Sequel If He's "Lucky Enough To Get The Opportunity"



Yesterday we spoke with "Tron Legacy" mastermind Joseph Kosinksi about a lot of things regarding his wild, $300 million video art installation that masquerades, quite handily, as a holiday season blockbuster.

And of course amidst the discussion was talk of French house robots Daft Punk and their significant contribution to the film: a glittery, awe-inspiring score which is so impressive that at the screening we attended in Manhattan, their name in the end credits was the only part of the film that elicited applause.

Kosinski told The Playlist that his intent was to create "a classic film score with classic themes and melodies but blended electronic music and orchestral music in maybe a way that hadn't been done before, but also to blur the line between what is score and what is sound design." If that sounds like a daunting task, it is. "We've been working on the music as long as I've been working on the movie," he said.

We then asked if he'd want to work with Daft Punk on another film score.

"If we were lucky enough to get another opportunity to do another 'Tron' score, then I would absolutely want to do it with them again. I think they've kind of created the sonic template for this movie, so absolutely. I can't imagine doing it without them."

Kosinksi said the Daft Punk score/sound is so wed to the "Tron Legacy" universe that, while he wouldn't necessarily want to import that style into something else that he's working on (and we'll have details on the dual projects he's currently developing tomorrow), if he got invited back to do another "Tron" movie, then he would of course bring the robots with him. So does that mean more 'Tron' movies for Kosinski? The director does sound game. "It all depends obviously on how 'Tron Legacy' does," he said. "And then if the fans demand it and Disney wants us to go back, we'll start thinking about how to do that."

Of course, the thing dictating the possibilities of a sequel are the first film's box office. And we'll find that out soon enough - "Tron Legacy" opens on Friday in traditional, 3D and IMAX 3D theaters. We suggest seeing it in IMAX 3D if you can. But that's only if you like your mind melted.
