At the end of last week, I met up with TRON: Legacy director Joseph Kosinski for an extended interview at a local restaurant in Los Angeles. It was right before the movie got released, and while I’d already spoken to him at the press junket, he’d agreed to give me more time for an extended conversation. The fact is, you can only ask a few questions during a TV interview and most of the time you walk away feeling like you only scratched the surface.
However, during my epic 50 minute conversation, Kosinski and I discussed everything I could think of and I also asked the questions a lot of you sent me on Twitter. Some of the things discussed were what Michael Bay told him before filming, secret cameos, the Easter Eggs, the Daft Punk music and what never made the soundtrack, what might be in Tron 3, the IMAX release, how did he make a movie that looked so fraking cool, what sequences were changed or removed due to time/money, what will be on the Blu-ray, will he keep changing the film like George Lucas does Star Wars, how he became a filmmaker, and so much more.
However, the best part of the interview had nothing to do with his movie. That’s because when I first arrived, he was motioning me to look over his shoulder and he was smiling like a kid on Christmas. I didn’t understand why he was so happy. But when I looked to his left, I understood. Harrison Ford was sitting right next to him eating lunch. More after the jump:
