Daft Punk To Score Tron 2 (a.k.a. TR2N)

Disney and Daft Punk?  Seriously?

I guess it is possible.  Journey after all did supply the first soundtrack to the sci-fi cult flick Tron.  Then again Journey are not French robots….or are they???

I was/am a Tron fan so the news that a sequel to Tron is coming out got me all sorts of excited.  I still have one of my Tron toys from the 80’s made by Tomy somewhere in my mess of a computer room.  I loved that movie as a kid and recently was able to see it again in HD and loved it even more.  I am very curious to see how TR2N follows the original and more importantly see how Daft Punk does with the score.

If you forgot or do not know, I am a huge Daft Punk fan.  I think it would be awesome if Daft Punk made a cameo in the movie, after all they are not human.

Looks like I get the best of both worlds with this movie slated to release in 2011.

It kills me now to see this video of what Journey thought music from the 1990’s would sound like:

  1. DUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUDDDDDDDDDDEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE……………………..I don’t think anyone has original ideas anymore. I love TRON and i guess i’m glad they are making another one but shit man when will someone come up with something new? sequel, remake, sequel, remake, sequel, remake, sequel, remake, sequel, remake!!!!!!!

  2. No kidding. They’ll probably ruin it just like they did Knight Rider. Things become cultistic often accidentally, and usually because of some quirk or cheesiness and after enough time has passed where that piece can signify an era. I think if they take a dead serious approach, don’t go crazy with bad CGI they may have a shot. DP will definitely help carry the film, but it won’t be enough by itself.
