While reviews on the film were mixed, the look and feel of Joseph Kosinski's "Tron: Legacy" is acknowledged as being an incredibly rich and visually stunning feat. While the film had a less than spectacular opening, Disney announced a ways back that a sequel to the project would be happening, through a series of clips and details on the next rendition. Despite early news of said sequel and attaching David DiGillio to pen the original script, Disney has been taking their sweet time in enabling the project to come to fruition.
As deemed by ex-Warner Bros. head and new Disney chairman Alan Horn, "Tron 3" has now been given priority and Jess Wigutow has been hired to re-write the script. There has been no news yet if the three stars from the last film including Garrett Hedlund, Olivia Wilde and Jeff Bridges, will return. Many have speculated that Cillian Murphy may take on the larger villain role this time around.
At this point, we know that director Joseph Kosinski, who is currently finishing post-production on his Sci-Fi thriller "Oblivion", has been involved in developing the story for the sequel. It has yet to be confirmed however if he will return to direct.
We'll be sure to keep you posted as the story develops.
