Back in 2010 we were given the movie sequel Tron: Legacy, which came 28 years after the original Tron movie but still proved as popular as ever, impressing fans, critics, and at the box office, making $397m worldwide. It is no surprise then, that the last five years has seen a lot of talk about a Tron 3 movie being made, although we have yet to see the project move into production.
However, with that said, it looks like we are now closer than ever before, to a Tron 3 film actually getting made, as it has been confirmed that Joseph Kosinski, who directed Tron: Legacy, will return to direct Tron 3. Joseph has spoken in the past about his plans for Tron 3 and it now looks like he will finally be able to make them a reality.
It has also been claimed that the Tron 3 script has been completed and that we could see the movie start shooting as early as this Summer. With Joseph Kosinski claiming that Tron 3 will pick up where Tron: Legacy left off, we will no doubt see Garrett Hedlund back in his role as Sam Flynn, while Olivia Wilde is expected to return as Quora.
Meanwhile, it is not yet known whether we will see Jeff Bridges returning to reprise his role as Kevin Flynn, or if we will once again see Bruce Boxleitner in the role of Tron. Also, before we do go getting too far ahead of ourselves, it has also been claimed that Disney have not yet officially given Tron 3 the green light but, since they have confirmed that Joseph Kosinski is back on board, it will surely only be a matter of time.
Are you looking forward to seeing Tron 3?
