BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
When it was announced a few weeks back that Tron Legacy stars, Olivia Wilde and Garrett Hedlund would be reprising their roles in an upcoming sequel to that 2010 franchise revival, it was rather surprising. Yet, for the film’s co-star, Wilde, the delays that mired this film may have proven fortuitous when it came to finding a good story. In a recent interview, the actress discusses what’s in store for her character, Quorra.
When Disney’s long-in-the-making franchise revival Tron Legacy hit back in 2010, the reception was mixed and the box-office business was, at best, respectable. However, with the recent news that a third film will begin shooting soon and now it is being reported that the two primary stars of that last effort in Olivia Wilde and Garrett Hedlund will be returning.
It was a surprising turn of events earlier this month when it was revealed that the Walt Disney Company is actively working towards making a Tron 3. And while the movie does not yet have a firm release date announced by the studio, it seems that the production may have a name. Are you ready for Tron: Ascension?
It's been quite a long time since we last heard anything about Tron 3, the last piece of news dating back to 2012, but the project may be further along than we have been led to believe. That's because new reports are circulating saying that the sci-fi sequel is looking to start production this fall.
It feels like about 10 years since Tron: Legacy came to theaters, as pop culture moved on pretty quickly from a brief flirtation with light cycles, director Joseph Kosinski dove into the new project Oblivion, and star Garrett Hedlund worked hard to prove he was more than just the blank pretty boy who seemed lost at the center of the Game Grid
Tron Legacy was largely seen as a disappointment when it was released, making only $172 million domestically on a $170 million budget. But it seems as though Disney still has hope for the franchise because they've decided to move forward with yet another movie set in the Tron universe. Called simply Tron 3 as of now, the studio has already entered negotiations wither screenwriter Jesse Wigutow to handle the pen on the project. Joseph Kosinski, who directed Legacy, is still attached to direct.
The Tron franchise is stuck in a gray area. Though the last film, Tron Legacy, ended up making $400 million worldwide on a $170 million budget (not including advertising costs), the studio saw its $44 million opening as underwhelming and it wasn't exactly slathered in critical praise.
Work on a sequel to Tron: Legacy is underway. We’ve known it was coming for awhile, but today Disney announced that they’ve hired David DiGilio to work on the script. Adam Horowitz and Adam Kitsis wrote the previous film, but have moved on to writing a fairytale show called Once Upon a Time for ABC. If you saw Tron: Legacy, you know this is good news.
Another video from the Blu-ray has leaked, and this one may offer clues to the nature of Tron 3’s villain. The video shows a chat conversation between Edward Dillinger Jr. (played by Cillian Murphy in Tron: Legacy) and his father.
One scene includes not only Bruce Boxleitner as Alan Bradley but Dan Shor as Ram, one of the hero characters from the original film who never made it into
The first teaser for Tron: Legacy debuted to audiences at the San Diego Comic Con before they’d even shot a single frame of the film. Actually at the time, they didn’t even have a script
Nobody really knows right now what to expect from Tron: Legacy at the box office. In production for the past three years, with Disney doing everything that could to get the name out there, it's unknown how
