Now it seems the sequel is getting closer to reality as according THR Jesse Wigutow is in talks to work on the next draft of the script.
Tron: Legacy made $400 million worldwide back in 2010, which may have been less than Disney had hoped for, but it showed there’s interest in the franchise and a sequel could build on that. New Disney Chairman Alan Horn, who joined the company in May, is said to be developing the film “with a renewed purpose”, which is a good sign.
The story for the sequel will likely begin with Quorra (Olivia Wilde) and Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund) in the real world, and hopefully Cillian Murphy can return for a larger (potentially villainous) role as Dillinger Jr. I wouldn’t be surprised if Jeff Bridges returned too.
Tron: Legacy director Joseph Kosinski is still attached to direct, and he should divert more attention to it after finishing Oblivion, the upcoming sci-fi movie at Universal starring Tom Cruise.
Here’s to another Daft Punk soundtrack!
