Disney’s long-mooted reboot of The Black Hole, the fondly remembered and surprisingly heavyweight 1979 science fiction film starring Anthony Perkins and Maximilian Schell, has finally found itself a screenwriter.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Prometheus co-writer Jon Spaihts will be taking on the script, which will be directed by Oblivion and Tron: Legacy‘s Joseph Kosinski.
