The sequel to Tron Legacy gets a new writer

06.07.2011by:

Sam Flynn helped his zen digital dad made the computer world safe and got to interface with a sexy ISO made flesh in TRON: LEGACY, but peace in the circuits could never last.

That's mostly because Disney had already planned more stories in the neon-lit realm, and even though LEGACY didn't quite meet their "mega event" expectation, they're waxing up the lightcycles for another TRON.

But TRON: LEGACY writers Adam Horowitz and Adam Kitsis will apparently be too busy with their new TV series "Once Upon a Time" (one of this fall's competing fairy tale shows) for another visit to the glossy virtual universe, so Disney has brought in David DiGilio to work up a new script.

DiGilio has Disney history (he wrote EIGHT BELOW) but is apparently gathering Hollywood buzz from his pitch for Showtime series "The Last H.O.P.E.", a futuristic medical thriller described as "MAD MAX meets M.A.S.H." (I'd watch that).

No word on what direction the next TRON might go or which characters will return, or if director Joe Kosinski will be back (he's got the Tom Cruise sci-fi project OBLIVION up next and a remake of Disney's THE BLACK HOLE in the pipe), or if it will even get past the script stage. While the studio will reportedly save cash thanks to the designs and tech already created for LEGACY, they might wait to see how the upcoming animated show "Tron Uprising" performs before hitting the grid at full speed again.

Extra Tidbit: At the very least, let's hope Daft Punk returns for the sequel.

Loved both

Even though the first one is not as good as I remembered. And the second is NOT as bad as most claim. Both are good entertainment flicks !
The third one, I hope, will see TRON returns (He wasn't erased and his inner light went back from red to blue at the end of Legacy...). AND with the great cameo of Cilian Murphy as Dillinger's Son (Dillinger being the villain of the first TRON), you already have a great actor to play the bad guy in the 3rd TRON.

Yeah, I'll go see it


But let's work on dropping all the Soap Opera-esque exposition this time around.

Show, don't tell.

M'Kay?

What was wrong with Hedlund? He seemed to do fine with the shit script he had to work with.

Uwe Boll makes awful films. Asylum makes awful films. Tron Legacy is nowhere near an awful movie. IT is substantally better than 75% of the trash released every year.

If Kosinski is not back, I don't care.

I personally thought Legacy felt like a transitional movie between the original Tron and whatever would come next...a film solely meant to re-introduce audiences to the world of Tron before they did something big with it. But that's probably wishful thinking. Anyway, don't rush it, for sure, but I'd be down to see another one.

I wish they would get someone like J.J. Abrams to direct this. I loved the first "Tron" and loved "Legacy" as well. I have a feeling Disney will take their time on this. When you think about it, $400 million for a 28 year old cult film isn't that bad. Especially with strong DVD sales/rentals. We'll see. THE DARK KNIGHT RISES!!!

let's wait...

A much as i love the original and thought the new one was a really good movie (better than 1), I dont think we need to rush into another sequal. Lets wait a little while, say... 28 years?

There doesn't need to be another TRON. The first one isn't good and the second one was horrendous. Let it be. Unless the movie consists solely of Olivia Wilde looking crazy hot while another great Daft Punk score plays.

You're saying the sequel is worse than the original? You just put yourself through the punishment of re-watching the original. It aged... poorly.

I'm a sucker for anything Tron related...so I will see this. Loved Legacy, but there is definate room for improvement. Though if it does not include any characters from the past films I will be definately less interested.
