I have pretty vivid memories of stumbling across a copy of Black Hole in a Hollywood Video when I was a young impressionable lad, seeing the Disney logo and expecting the movie to be an exciting adventure for the whole family. Instead, I got a nasty robot named Maximilian rampaging through people's epidermis (and later going to Hell...I think). Let's just say the movie left an impression.

Well, looks like it left an impression on people with big offices at Disney, because The Hollywood Reporter is, er, reporting that Black Hole is getting pushed through the remake machine courtesy of Joseph Kosinski and Sean Bailey, the director and producer of the still-a-year-away-from-release Tron: Legacy. For those of you unfamiliar with the original, I'll let the original article do the heavy lifting:

"The original followed a group of space explorers aboard the USS Palomino who come across a lost ship, the USS Cygnus, hovering outside a black hole. Inside the Cygnus, the explorers meet a scientist, commanding an army of faceless robots, who explains his crew deserted him as he planned to go through the black hole. The explorers soon discover that the robots are the remnants of the former crew and that the scientist has no intention of letting them leave."
