SciFi channel article.
Post on Slashdot.
Disney has hired screenwriters Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal to fashion a remake of Tron, the 1982 film about a computer programmer who gets sucked into the parallel world of a computer program, Variety reported.

The original movie, written and directed by Steven Lisberger, was considered ahead of its time. Klugman and Sterntha (Warrior) feel that the world has caught up with Lisberger's original concept, making it ripe for redo, the trade paper reported.

Sternthal told the trade paper that the new conceit is that the computer programmer gets trapped in a cyberworld, so that the film can utilize the Internet.
I'm looking forward to this, hopefully they'll do a good job on it. It'll definately be interesting to see it redone with current SFX and CG technology.

I just hope the remake isn't a fuck up, like usual remakes. I mean, He-Man was brought back to life, and what happened, it was bullshit!!! Let's hope this is a good one.
