This belated sequel to Stanley Kubrick 's 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) is directed by Peter Hyams . Roy Scheider plays the astronaut/skipper of a US-Soviet space mission, sent to find out what happened to the missing Discovery flight that carried Keir Dullea into the beyond in the original 2001 . Scheider 's polygot crew includes Americans John Lithgow and Bob Balaban (the latter a computer whiz, responsible for the notorious HAL 9000) and Russians Helen Mirren , Elya Baskin and Natasha Schneider . The reason for this international mixture is that the world is on the brink of nuclear war, and it is hoped that the space mission will assure east-west solidarity (in this respect, 2010 dates far more than 2001 , given the collapse of the Iron Curtain). When the astronauts catch up with Dullea , still in orbit around Jupiter, producer/director/writer Hyams attempts to demystify the enigmatic climax of 2001 . Arthur C. Clarke , author of the story upon which 2001 was based, appears in 2010 as a man on a park bench. Incidentally, the voice-over credited to Olga Mallsnerd is actually Candice Bergen (the name Mallsnerd is a play on the name of one of the characters created by her ventriloquist father Edgar .) -- Hal Erickson
