Daft Punk to Do Score for Tron 2.0?


According to the L.A. times, French robo-rockers Daft Punk are rumored to be doing the score for Disney's upcoming sequel to the 80's groundbreaking computer movie Tron. I personally am not a fan of Daft Punk at all, but even I have to admit that would be an inspired choice, if true.

Tron 2.0? Cripes!

I'm sending your lyric writing column to writers in Hollywood (and Disney). Maybe they can use it to come up with an original script for a change, and be released of their obsession with rehashing the past.

Yeah, I'm pretty fed up with Hollywood's tendency to just remake popular movies or make sequels no one was really asking for. Tron 2 could be cool, but if history has taught us anything, it's that Hollywood will find a way to screw it up.

I had such hopes for this movie. Not a fan of disco-tech at all. I just don't see that and Tron mixing very well, but I hope I'm proven wrong like I have been many times with choices like these. Speed Racer? I hated the whole idea, but was blown away in the end.

I agree though and it reminds of a song I heard:

"A rerun culture takes your past and sells it back to you" - Tom Shear

oh wait....

This goes back to this whole "Level 3" fan discussiona again..

Tom, you like Prodigy but you're "not a fan of Daft Punk at all"?!?
hmmm
I've never heard anyone suggest that The Prodigy was better than Daft Punk (to compare late 90s big-beat house groups).
Personally I've enjoyed every Daft Punk album quite a bit, and I've only liked a few Prodigy tracks like Charly and Firestarter.
well I guess maybe I'm wrong, since you're making great music and I'm just some guy reading a blog.
in any event, I think you should give Daft Punk another chance.
