“Tron Legacy” isn’t due until December, but Disney already is putting a sequel on its monorail track.
Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, the “Lost” writers/co-executive producers who worked on “Legacy,” have begun writing a sequel to the studio’s sci-fi tentpole.
No details have been released because it is so early in the process. Notwithstanding the question of whether the movie will be a hit, other topics to ponder are whether the sequel will focus on spinoff characters or center on a new adventure set in the “Tron” world. Insiders have suggested that Kitsis and Horowitz are working on a way to round the story into a trilogy.
No deals have been made with “Legacy” director Joseph Kosinski or cast members to return, though options were placed in the original deals, and Disney surely would hope to reunite all the elements if “Legacy” proves to be a hit.
ComingSoon.net learned today at WonderCon in San Francisco that Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time and The Sorcerer’s Apprentice co-writers Carlo Bernard and Doug Miro are reteaming with producer Jerry Bruckheimer and “Sorcerer’s Apprentice” director Jon Turteltaub to pen the script for National Treasure 3.
The first National Treasure was released in 2004 and earned $347.5 million worldwide, but National Treasure: Book of Secrets easily surpassed that in 2007 with $457.4 million worldwide.
There’s no word yet on which way the story is going to go in the third film. Though it has not been confirmed, we assume Nicolas Cage, Justin Bartha, Diane Kruger and Jon Voight will all be back.
“Toy Story 3, ” a computer-animated film produced by Pixar Animation Studio, will premiere on the big screen in Taiwan, according to an executive of the studio’s parent company.
“‘Toy Story 3′ will hit local screens June 16 this year, which is two days prior to its U.S. release, ” Kiki Yu, a senior marketing manager of Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures (Taiwan) Division, said at a press briefing in Taipei Sunday.
“People in Taiwan will be the first to see the film, ” said Vivienne Tung, the public relations supervisor of the Taiwan division.
The date was chosen to screen the film because it happens to fall on the Dragon Boat Festival, which is a public holiday in Taiwan, Tung added.
Pixar has also launched 3D versions of “Toy Story 1″ and “Toy Story 2,” which are due in Taiwanese cinema April 23, according to a press statement.
“Toy Story” was the industry’s first computer-animated feature and the first feature released by Pixar in 1995. “Toy Story 2″ came out in 1999.
Walt Disney Records will release the original soundtrack for Walt Disney Pictures’ and Jerry Bruckheimer Films’ PRINCE OF PERSIA: THE SANDS OF TIME on May 25, 2010. The recording features an epic, romantic sweeping original score written by award-winning composer Harry Gregson-Williams and an end credit song performed by multiple Grammy® Award-winner Alanis Morissette (“I Remain”). PRINCE OF PERSIA: THE SANDS OF TIME hits theaters Memorial Day Weekend, 2010.
Canadian-born singer-songwriter Alanis Morissette wrote and performed the soundtrack’s end credit song “I Remain,” which serves as the film’s end title track. Said Morissette of the song: “It’s an honor to write from the voice of an empowered princess about a love that empowers them both to new heights, healing and consciousness. The song wrote itself and this story was the ultimate muse.” “I Remain” was co-written with Mike Elizondo (Dr. Dre, Eminem, Maroon 5, Mary J. Blige, Nelly Furtado), who also produced the track. Elizondo also produced the Alanis Morissette-penned track “Wunderkind,” from “The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian” film and soundtrack. Morissette has sold more than 60 million albums worldwide, earned 12 Canadian Juno Awards, 8 Grammy® Awards and also received an additional 14 Grammy® nominations.
Harry Gregson-Williams is one of Hollywood’s most sought after composers, working on a variety of high-profile projects, both animated and live-action. Gregson-Williams composed the music for “The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian” and “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe,” for which he collected Golden Globe and Grammy nominations for his score. He also received a BAFTA Award nomination and won the Ivor Novello Award for Best Score, as well as an Annie Award, for the blockbuster animated feature “Shrek.” Spanning a 14 year relationship, Gregson-Williams has composed for various Jerry Bruckheimer projects including, “The Rock,” “Armageddon,” “Enemy of the State,” “Veronica Guerin” and “Déjà Vu.” His numerous feature film credits have included “Shrek 2,” “Shrek the Third,” the upcoming “Shrek Forever After,” “Gone Baby Gone,” “Man on Fire,” “Domino,” “Spy Game,” “Kingdom of Heaven,” “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” and “The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3,” among others.
For his score, which was recorded at the historic Abbey Road in London, Gregson-Williams utilized a broad sonic spectrum including a 77-piece orchestra, a choir of 32 vocalists as well as a variety of ethnic instruments. “Having the opportunity to create a score for a large scale adventure like PRINCE OF PERSIA: THE SANDS OF TIME is an amazing opportunity,” stated Gregson-Williams. “The film presented a musical canvas of epic proportions, lending itself to a wide range of symphonic possibilities including romantic melodies and heroic themes beautifully brought to life by our orchestra and chorus.”
