Fans of the Tron series may be disappointed to hear that Tron 3 is not going forward at Disney. As a huge fan of the first film back in 1982 (please don’t do the math), I was thrilled to see the news that Tron: Legacy starring Olivia Wilde and Garrett Hedlund was happening. I had a blast on the set. The movie, however, was disappointing. It’s not terribly surprising that the third installment isn’t going forward.
There were reports that the film wasn’t ever officially greenlit, but that wasn’t confirmed. Tron: Legacy director Joseph Kosinski was set to direct Wilde and Hedlund, who were reprising their roles and Jared Leto was reportedly being sought to join the cast. The last film ended in the real world, so maybe getting them back in the game was a bit too contrived.
Are you guys upset by the news? Happy? Let us know your thoughts below. Do me a favor and re-watch the original film. Marvel at the tech that is actually now in the world, that was just an idea back then.
