News: Daft Punk to score Tron 2

80s computer nerds, internet phenom Tron Guy, frisbee fans and to a lesser extent Jeff Bridges are all frothing at the mouth about the new Tron 2 film destined for screens in 2010. Me, I was more of a Weird Science guy, what can I say, I love robo-boobs.
Anyway, Daft Punk will be scoring the film. Not since MIA was featured in Slumdog Millionaire all those days ago has a musical act been so destined to be featured in a film. Of course le Frenchies had dabbled in scoring their own films with the G-Forcely brilliant Interstella 5555 and Electroma but here they've got the nod and recognition by Walt himself.

He's actually in a computer... ON A MOTORBIKE NO-FUCKING-LESS!
Give me Max Headroom any day.


  1. Holy crap that's brilliant news !
    I made an alternate soundtrack comp for the original Tron as a mix cd for a friend last year. I'll upload it as a torrent - its on btjunkies data base
    search for alternate tron soundtrack.
    Sort of playing up the paranoid future element - but watching that clip the original music was pretty dark -
    "where love and escape do not compute" what a tag line !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Hate to nitpick you Col - but Daft Punk didn't score Electroma. They got other artists to do the music... i think that's probably why i didn't like it as much.
