He made his big-screen directorial debut with the Disney Digital 3-D science fiction film Tron: Legacy, the sequel to the 1982 film Tron.

Biography

Joseph Kosinski a grandi à Marshalltown, dans l'Iowa. Il est le fils de Patricia et de Joel Kosinski, un docteur.


Formation
Il est ancien élève du GSAPP, actuellement assistant professeur adjoint de l'architecture où il aide les étudiants dans la modélisation 3D et des graphistes. En 2008, il a parlé en détail sur sa formation en architecture, en poussant les limites de la technique dans des publicités et de ses progressions éventuelles à des longs métrages.


Carrière
Après avoir déménagé à Los Angeles, en Californie, en 2005, il a commencé à écrire un récit intitulé Oblivion, qui sort en comics en 2010.

En 2007, Warner Bros. l'embauche pour diriger le remake de L'Âge de cristal, un film de science-fiction des années 1970. Le projet n'aboutit finalement pas.

Fort de son expérience dans la 3D, Walt Disney Pictures l'engage pour réaliser Tron : L'Héritage (2010), suite du film culte Tron sorti en 1982. Ce film Disney Digital 3-D et IMAX 3D est notamment tourné grâce à la caméra numérique "Phantom" qui peut capter jusqu'à un million d'images par seconde. Le tournage dure seulement 64 jours mais nécessite ensuite 68 semaines de post-production.

En 2013, il adapte son propre comics dans le film de science-fiction Oblivion avec Tom Cruise.
Après un budget de 170 millions de dollars pour Tron : L'Héritage, Kosinski dirige ici un nouveau blockbuster au budget de 140 millions.

Il est choisi pour mettre en scène la suite de Tron : L'Héritage, Tron: Ascension, dont le tournage devait débuter en octobre 2015, mais le projet est finalement abandonné par Disney en mai 2015.
