TR2N

Most people agree that the TR2N teaser shown at the Con was a kaleidoscopic orgasm of awesomeness, moreso by the fact that it featured Jeff Bridges. Like a true c**k tease, however, Disney threw this out and left us holding our nads. Questions of who, what, when, where and "will this come off?" immediately began but luckily, Jim Hill Media has been kind enough to answer some of these.

First of all, Pixar grand master, John Lasseter, was the driving force behind getting TR2N made, seeing as how he has a little bit of a soft spot for the original (at least the ground breaking visuals) and he pushed to get a teaser out to prove to Disney that a sequel could work. He's not, however, a big fan of the story so though original TRON writer/director Steve Lisberger has been cooking up a sequel since the original was released, Lasseter has decided to start from scratch and brough onboard Eddie Kitsis & Adam Horowitz of "Lost" to pen the script and commercial director Joseph Kosinski to helm. Kosinski will be making his feature debut and Lisberger will retain a co-producer credit.

OMG!

This could work and I would see it.I remember seeing the original as a kid, and this could work in a sea of shitty remakes and "re-imaginings".Jeff Bridges is a pimp.John Lasseter can do no wrong in my book.Has he made some films that weren't perfect?YES...Has he made one that failed to inspire and entertain me?NO!!!

Bring it on!

You guys gotta go and watch the original TRON again. Those light cycles could make some leaning turns once outside the arena. Have you just played the game and never watched the movie? (Bootleg teaser looks awesome, too.)

looks like it can be amazing. I think it kinda needs Bridges in it. It wouldnt be as good just bringing some nobody actors in for it. I hope the teaser gets put on the net in HD ,cause that bootleg is crappy and crooked!

that looks damn amazing. very, very cool. i saw the first tron like a billion years ago, and it was wild then.

too bad it was so small, but it still looked good from that distance.

I realize it may be a tad sacrilege to admit...but i'v never seen the 1st Tron. But I've always known the visuals have been fantastic and it has a pretty large following.

Seeing Lasseter shepherding this project is all good because, honestly, Lasseter is truly the man that will bring some good credibility back to Disney. This, bringing back Jeff Bridges and the rumor of Pixar's involvement in creating the movie are all high marks here.
