Disney are moving forward with their plan to "reinvent" the 1979 sci-fi film, and have brought Prometheus co-writer Jon Spaihts on board the project to work on the script. The original movie was a strange, ambitious, but ultimately failed attempt to give the sci-fi action a philosophical twist. Although it had its moments for sure: A pretty intimidating bright red robot named Maximilian, and some very dark moments you'd be hard pressed to see in a so called kid's movie today. The Black Hole spawned toys, comic books etc but never reached the level of popularity Disney had clearly envisioned for it. The story 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 that 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. It's not known whether the reboot will follow the exact same story, but I don't imagine it'd deviate too much. Oblivion's Joseph Kosinski will direct.

They seem pretty desperate to reinvent this one.

I hope they come up with a much better ending --- the original sucked so bad, but then it was a black hole, after all ...

So it will be like total recall where it shares the name and a small handful of elements but nothing like the original.

Well, that means it's pretty much doomed.
