Joseph Kosinski Wiki/Bio
On May 3, 1974, Joseph Kosinski was born in Marshalltown, Iowa, United States. His parents are Patricia, of French-Canadian origin, and Joel Kosinski, of Polish descent.

Kosinski's post-graduate education in architecture was completed at Columbia University's Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation. Because of this class, he improved his 3D modeling, design, and graphics abilities.
Joseph's first significant picture was the particular effects-laden film Tron: Legacy, which he directed. With a release date in December 2010, the movie was shown in Disney Digital 3-D and IMAX 3D. After relocating to Los Angeles in 2005, he started writing a film treatment that would later evolve into an unreleased graphic novel titled Oblivion for Radical Comics.
Walt Disney Pictures purchased the rights to the work in August 2010. William Monahan was a contributor to the screenplay for the movie adaptation. It was reported in March 2011 that Karl Gajdusek would rewrite the movie's script.
As a result of the failure of the efforts to maintain the picture's PG classification, Disney was forced to relinquish its rights to the film, which were then acquired by Universal Pictures, which then consented to the film's PG-13 rating. Oblivion, a movie with a budget of $120 million, began production in March 2012 with Tom Cruise playing the lead role and was released in April of the following year.
Early in 2015, it was revealed that Kosinski would helm the third installment of the Tron film franchise; however, Disney ultimately decided to shelve the project in May of the same year. Only the Brave, based on the real-life events of the Granite Mountain Hotshots and directed by him in 2017, was initially titled Granite Mountain (wildland firefighters).
It was reported in June of 2017 that Joseph would be directing the sequel to Top Gun, titled Top Gun: Maverick. Universal Pictures, the international distributor of the original picture, announced that he had been hired to direct the reboot of Twister in June 2020. He is also scheduled to helm a Formula One racing picture that still needs to be given a title.
The film will reunite him with Top Gun: Maverick producer Jerry Bruckheimer and screenwriter Ehren Kruger, and it will also feature racing driver Lewis Hamilton in a producing role. Apple Studios purchased the movie in June of 2022, and it will star Brad Pitt. It will also have an exclusive theatrical release "of at least 30 days" before it is available for streaming on Apple TV+.
Kosinski has been linked to several unproduced films, including remakes of 1970s science-fiction films Logan's Run and The Black Hole, the science-fiction film Archangels, an untitled action-thriller from Halt and Catch Fire writers Christopher Cantwell and Christopher C. Rogers, and The Twilight Zone. All of these films have yet to be produced.
