Here's Your Black Hole News - The Film Will Be Written By Prometheus And The Darkest Hour's Jon Spaihts

black hole originalI think its safe to say that neither of Jon Spaihts produced screenplays made it to the screen unmolested so while neither The Darkest Hour or Prometheus are really that successful, we can’t fairly pin the blame on Spaihts.

He’s now been tapped to rewrite The Black Hole for Disney and Joseph Kosinski. Let’s try not to be prejudiced.

I guess this is the big news Kosinski was teasing. Could have been bigger, I’m sure you’ll agreed.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Spaiht’s working to a new take on the film, replacing the one developed by Pacific Rim‘s Travis Beacham. They say the new premise is a:

big idea – philosophical and somewhat dark in tone.

Which is, I suppose, the kind of thing they might also say about the mumbo jumbo dribble that Prometheus ended up slavered in. So, yeah, this could go either way yet.

Next week, Kosinski’s Oblivion launches across the UK. I’m certainly curious to see if he’s bested the rather silly Tron: Legacy. I really hope he has.
