French electronica duo, Daft Punk, have been asked to score the updated version of the 1982 classic sci-fi classic, Tron.
Daft Punk has worked in film before, directing the feature “Electroma” – although that film used none of the group’s own music. As one half of the duo Thomas Banglater explained to Billboard in 2007 about the pair’s next musical project, “The cool thing is that we’re always trying to do something that hasn’t been done, or ultimately, that we aren’t doing ourselves yet. It is challenging to get back in the studio and work with ideas we haven’t expressed before. Some ideas take time, but some just take a few weeks, so we’ll see.”
