First Look: Very First Set Photo from Tron 2 in Vancouver!

Very First Set Photo from Tron 2 in Vancouver!

As you might have heard, Tron 2 officially started shooting up in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada recently. Yesterday we reported that the budget might be upwards of $300 million, although after further consideration, we realized that might've been in Canadian dollars, meaning it's probably closer to $243 million, which is still a whole hell of a lot. To top things off, SlashFilm landed the very first set photo from Vancouver. Although it's not much, it is interesting for numerous reasons. That logo is for ENCOM, the software company that Flynn worked at, and they converted the whole building into a set piece.

From the local who sent in the photo: "They have been spending some crazy money here. They have been blocking off huge main sections of downtown for some pretty awesome looking action scenes. I saw tons of police cars chasing a guy hanging on to the top of a taxi. There were huge cranes holding up a stunt wire rig rig like I have never seen before. There is definitely some impressive non-light cycle real life action in this movie…. Everything I've seen them doing in the last five days is easily some of the most expensive stuff I've ever seen." So there is a lot of action taking place not inside the computer world in this? Interesting…

    #6. This has got to be an April Fools day joke. Uwe Boll is one of the worst director's on the planet. What idoit would give him $300 million dollars to make a movie. I don't believe this for a second.
  • Cant wait to see some new footage from this film.
