Joseph Kosinski says that Tron 3 has to be their Empire Strikes Back for him to return

I like many others was excited for TRON: LEGACY back in 2010. The soundtrack was also gobbled up by those who saw the film, and may have actually liked the music more than the movie itself. Personally, I enjoyed it. I thought it was fun, but kept thinking about how The Dude had taken over what once was Flynn. I was also head over heels with Michael Sheen's over the top performance: "Change the scheme, alter the mood. Electrify the boys and girls if you'd be so kind." Plus, Olivia Wilde.

Now for movement on TRON 3, we have Garrett Hedlund back in the mix as Sam, and Jesse Wigutow (IT RUNS IN THE FAMILY) has been hired to write the script, but what about Joseph Kosinski? Well, the director says that he will come back if it could be something spectacular, or something EMPIRE STRIKES BACK.

Here's what he told Collider.com:

“Well the only reason to go back, for me and I think for anyone involved would be if we could do something truly spectacular. We’ve been talking about it for a couple years and there’s always been this idea, a big idea, in the back of my head that we’ve been talking about. The idea itself, the notion of what the next Tron could be, is exciting enough that it would be worth going back to do it. Obviously we hinted some things at the end of Legacy, it’s kind of there for people to see what that potential is. So we just want to make sure that we have a script that delivers on that promise on an epic scale.”

“I’ve said it would have to be our Empire Strikes Back for me to come back and for me to pull the whole team back together. I think we do have that idea. We do have the idea that feels big and really blows the doors off this franchise. It’s hinted at promises of something for two movies now, for thirty years, so it’s time to deliver on that. But the script’s got to be at a level that makes it worth going back for, because it’s a lot of work to make a movie like this and it’s a multi-year project. So we’ve got our writer Jesse Wigutow on it right now writing, and fingers crossed if it all comes together, as we hope it will, there could be another Tron in the next few years, and it’s going to be awesome.”

I don't know what expectations you guys have for the next TRON, or if you even want to see one. What are some ideas you would have for the film?
