Exclamation want to ask the TRON or TRON LEGACY filmmakers questions? Here's how (and act fast):

Hey everyone --

HDD will most likely be getting a chance tomorrow to sit down with:

--Steven Lisberger (writer / director of the original TRON)
--Joseph Kosinki (director of TRON LEGACY)
--Eric Barba (VFX Supervisor for TRON LEGACY, CURIOS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON, ZODIAC)

If anyone has any questions about either film or their respective Blu-rays, please write your requests below by 10:00AM (PST) tomorrow, March 31.

Cheers.

Really, the only question I have is whether a sequel is to be made, but I don't think Kosinski and co. are at liberty to say so yet. Do ask though, just in case!

Why they use ISOs to represent the "future." ISO is just a disc image format in our "real world." To me, the term just sort of made me laugh when they used it because it made me think about copied DVDs and Games.

Like, the idea behind USERs and Programs makes sense. There's a real world correlation between the two. It makes sense if you go inside, that will be what you deal with. I just don't get the idea behind naming a miracle race after a disc image format used to backup files.

That's my question basically. Why name them ISOs?

Hopefully, you'll get a better response then, WHY NOT? Or, it might get shot down as dorky. Though, I think nothing at this point in our society can really make that question dorky. I find the knowledge of knowing what an ISO is to be pretty freaking basic. So, it made me question the importance of the "miracle race" when they are merely disc images.

Second question.

When you got the okay to finally make the film...How much of the script was taken from the original failed attempt a few years ago? I heard a lot of talk back in the early part of the previous decade about relaunching the film franchise. Then, a game called Tron 2.0 popped up and everything disappeared. When I compare some of the basic plot points it seems slightly similar. Did you see that game was sort of a testing block for the story? Did you figure what did and didn't work based off that game?

Just curious how the tweaking process worked for the script.

I think ISOs refer to isomorphism, algebraic term.

I know what it stands for, and what they tried to do with it. However, the file structuring system which Tron seems to base it's world layout on, uses ISO for "disc images." I just find the naming to be mildly odd as it has another meaning. It's like if they decided to name them, Applications. Well, Programs are Applications.

*Shrugs*

Maybe the writers figured in the 80s during the time Flynn got sucked in, disc images weren't of any major significance yet (Probably unlikely they thought too much into it). Really, I'm pretty sure it came down to, we're gonna use isomorphic algorithms as a miracle race and name them ISOs for short, and didn't think much about the fact that in computer terms today, that's a name for an image file.

So wait, do you mean to say they did a bad job at making a bad movie thus making a good movie?

1) Was the Flynn Lives feature always apart of the story you wanted to tell but didn't know where to put it in the movie, or was it something you came up specifically for the home video release?

2) When bringing the movie from 3D theaters to 3D home video, were there any challenges making the transfer?
