Daft Punk go Disney in 'Tron Legacy' film
The French duo Daft Punk are to appear in the forthcoming "Tron Legacy" film. Not that unlikable if you know that the French dance act have also written the soundtrack for the "Tron" remake set for release in the US on December 17, 2010. The news was revealed by actress Olivia Wilde to Moviesblog.mtv.com. Disney also plans to get them into doing promotional work for the film at the next Comic-Con. Comic-Con is the annual convention celebrating all things related to comics and sci-fi, the 2010 edition is set to take place in San Diego on July 22-25.

"Tron" is a 1982 American science fiction film by Walt Disney Pictures. It stars Jeff Bridges as Kevin Flynn (and his program counterpart inside the electronic world, Clu), Bruce Boxleitner as Tron and his User Alan Bradley, Cindy Morgan as Yori and Dr. Lora Baines, and Dan Shor as Ram. David Warner plays all three main antagonists: the program Sark, his User Ed Dillinger, and the voice of the Master Control Program. It was written and directed by Steven Lisberger. Tron has a distinctive visual style, as it was one of the first films from a major studio to use computer graphics extensively.

The soundtrack for "Tron" was written by pioneer electronic musician Wendy Carlos, who is best known for her album Switched-On Bach and for the soundtracks to such films as "A Clockwork Orange" and "The Shining". The music, which was the first collaboration between Carlos and her partner Annemarie Franklin, featured a mix of an analog Moog synthesizer and GDS digital synthesizer, along with non-electronic pieces performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra hired at the insistence of Disney, which was concerned that Carlos might not be able to complete her score on time. Two additional musical tracks were provided by the band Journey after British band Supertramp pulled out of the project.
