We've heard news of a sequel to "Tron: Legacy" happening for the last couple of years now. The last movie was met with mixed reviews, mostly along the lines of it being visually stunning but flawed in the plot department. It still racked up $400 million worldwide for Disney however, solidifying that there was indeed interest in the franchise.
Joesph Kosinski, director of "Tron: Legacy", has been busy with his latest sci-fi flick "Oblivion", starring Tom Cruise and Morgan Freeman. Now that the film opens in AMC Theatres on April 19th, Kosinski has time again to focus on other projects, such as "Tron 3".
Kosinski recently revealed that he'll be done with the first draft of the script very soon:
"We’ve been working on this story for four years now. Jesse Wigutow (It Runs I the Family) is writing it. The first draft is supposed to come in in the next week. The idea we have is really exciting. It would have to be pretty exciting to get people back together because they’re really hard movies to make. Legacy was almost three years. We’ve got an exciting idea for it and as long as the script can deliver on that the interest is there from the studio side, I just want to make sure it gets the creative juices enough to dive back into it."
There is no official confirmation yet that Olivia Wilde, (Quorra) Garrett Hedlund (Sam Flynn), Jeff Bridges (Kevin Flynn) or the rest of the cast will be returning for the sequel, but they did express interest last year, so chances are high.
