'TRON Legacy' Sequel is Reportedly Shooting in Vancouver This Fall
It's been a couple years since we heard anything about a sequel to TRON Legacy, the 2010 sequel to the classic 80s sci-fi adventure TRON. At the time, the project was said to be on the fasttrack, but here we are without any solid development being reported. However, we might get some news sooner than we think if a report from Vancity Buzz (via Badass Digest) is to be believed. They say that Disney has greenlit what will the third film in the TRON series and filming is already being schedule to begin in Vancouver at the beginning of October of this year with Garrett Hedlund being the only cast member confirmed to return.
However, what's more important is that we haven't heard who wrote the final script or who will be behind the camera. As of 2012, Jesse Wigitow, who did work on the remake of The Crow and the adaptation of Peter and the Starcatchers was scripting the sequel, but the studio may have gotten someone else to rewrite more recently. Joseph Kosinski directed TRON Legacy, and it sounds like he'll be back as director for this one too. Kosinski knows how to direct a pretty movie, but the story last time left something to be desired, so here's hoping Disney gets a better script together. Thoughts?
