Director Joseph Kosinski and Producer Sean Bailey Exclusive Video Interview TRON: LEGACY

     December 13, 2010

In the summer of 2008, at Comic-Con, Walt Disney Studios stunned attendees by premiering footage from what appeared to be the sequel to Tron.  While a sequel to Tron had been a rumor for many years, this was the first proof that Disney might be serious.

Since that summer, fans have waited patiently for the return of Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges).  But with December 17th just a few days away, the world only has to wait a few more nights to see the grid come back to life with 21st century graphics. As a lifelong fan of Tron, trust me when I say, this is a film that needs to be seen in a theater and I really recommend IMAX 3D as the screen fills up during certain scenes on the grid.  Also, the Daft Punk score is amazing and hearing it in a huge theater with the volume turned up…that’s how it’s meant to be seen.

Anyway, I was able to do video interviews with most of the cast, director Joseph Kosinski, and producer Sean Bailey. Every day this week I’ll be posting a new video interview and up first is Kosinski and Bailey.  Hit the jump for our interview:

Since Kosinski and Bailey have done so much press leading up to this release, I knew that I had ask some new questions. Some of the things we talked about were what they took home from set, what do they want audiences to know about the film, do they have any deleted scenes and what will be on the DVD/Blu-ray (sounds like the Blu-ray is going to be loaded with cool stuff).  An interesting thing that Kosinski told me was that Daft Punk mixed their score in 7.1 – which is another reason it sounds so amazing.

Here’s the interview.  Look for a new one everyday this week.  And you can click here for our previous coverage of TRON: Legacy.  The link has clips, posters, trailers, images, and so much more.

Joseph Kosinski and Sean Bailey

  • Since they’ve been doing so much press, I ask them what they want to talk about. Bailey talks about the father/son story and the fact that it’s a standalone story
  • What did they take home from set
  • What deleted scenes might be on the eventual DVD/Blu-ray.  What other extras.  They say not many things were cut from the movie.  Bailey talks about how the Blu-ray will have a lot of cool stuff.
  • The sound mix.  Kosinski talks about how they went with a 7.1 mix. Also reveals Daft Punk mixed all their music in 7.1 as well.
  • Oblivion talk.  What’s the status?  Says starting January 1st it’ll be “fun to dive into that.”  Sounds like it’s probably his next project
  • I ask Bailey how crazy has the last few years been for him coming from Project Greenlight to being a head of a studio
