Suicide Squad Jared Leto as The Joker header image - Tron reboot

There has been an interesting number of developments surrounding Tron lately. Most recently, Tron: Legacy director Joseph Kosinski revealed that had Disney followed up with Tron 3, the film would have been an invasion movie from inside the machine coming out, with the first act taking place in the real world, followed by the second act which would have been set in Tron (or multiple worlds), before ending it all in the real world.

While the film has been on hold, it looks like the studio may be interested in reviving the franchise once more, and this time with a new lead. According to new reports, Suicide Squad star Jared Leto is being eyed for the lead role. More on the story below.

Garrett Hedlund in Tron Legacy

Tron 3 (rumored to be titled Tron: Ascension) was so close to production that stars Garrett Hedlund and Olivia Wilde were expected to report on set in Vancouver in the Fall. However, with the disappointing box office performance of Tomorrowland, Disney decided to shut down the Tron sequel before it even entered production. Fans refused to believe that Tron 3 would never happen, and even started a petition to get it back into production.

Disney didn’t even mention at the D23 Expo earlier this year if they were still considering releasing Tron 3, but for those who are still holding out on hope of it getting made, Hedlund has an optimistic outlook. According to what was told to him, the project isn’t dead, but rather Disney is still trying to find the right story. More on this below.

Tron: Legacy

Recently, Disney had to announce that they weren’t moving forward with Tron 3 (better known by its working title, Tron: Ascension). The studio didn’t give any specific details as to why they decided to pull the plug, but despite numerous reports that the cast and crew were due to report on the Vancouver set this fall, they never actually greenlit the film. So now that Disney halted production on the film, loyal fans of the cult film have stepped up asking the studio to reconsider the decision and start preproduction on the sequel again.

More on this story below.

Tron: Legacy

In the past few weeks there have been talks of Tron 3 shooting in Vancouver this fall. The tentatively titled Tron: Ascension will bring back Joseph Kosinski as director. While reports suggested that Garrett Hedlund would be returning to reprise his role as Sam Flynn, it was unclear if Olivia Wilde would be returning. At the end of Tron: Legacy, it was revealed that her character, Quorra, had made it out of The Grid, and transferred herself into the real world.

Now a new report says that she is signed on to appear, and also confirms that Hedlund is on board for the sequel as well. While some may have doubted the sequel even happening, it appears that Tron 3 is on, though we have yet to hear of a confirmation from the Disney themselves. Hit the jump for more.

Tron

Three weeks ago, our own eelyajekiM reported that Walt Disney Pictures had finally decided to pull the trigger on a second sequel to their 1982 cult sci-fi adventure Tron and was reportedly planning to film in Vancouver this Fall. Up until now, it’s been going by the rather generic handle Tron 3, but if a recent tweet from Production Weekly regarding the timeline of the planned shoot is to be taken as gospel, then the sequel could possibly be titled Tron: Ascension.

Tron Legacy

Tron is just that one film franchise that somehow finds a way to make use of its extra lives. Fans were excited to hear that a sequel, Tron: Legacy, would be coming, but it was met with mixed reviews and it barely met box office expectations. With the way the film ended there was hope that a Tron 3 would soon follow.

Since it’s 2010 release, talks of a sequel grew quieter with each passing year. Now a new report says not only is Tron 3 still alive, but it will shoot in Vancouver this fall. Hit the jump for more.

Tron Legacy Garrett Hedlund Header

Those first few moments in Tron: Legacy gave us an indication that Disney had some plans for a sequel. Cillian Murphy’s cameo appearance as Edward Dillinger, Jr., head of the software design team for ENCOM and the son of former ENCOM Senior Executive Ed Dillinger (portrayed by David Warner in the original film), completely came out of left field and had fans wondering how he would fit into all of this. The appearance may have been short lived, but some of the other character decisions made in the film also lead us to believe that there would be a Tron 3.

Well not only has Disney hired Jesse Wigutow to rewrite the script for Tron 3, but Tron: Legacy star Garrett Hedlund has confirmed he would could return to reprise his role.
