“Tron” sci-fi adventure film sequel in development at Disney

PanARMENIAN.Net - A new Tron is back in development at Disney. The sequel to the 2010 reboot Tron: Legacy - called Tron 3 in some quarters - is moving a step forward with Disney in negotiations to hire Jesse Wigutow to pen the latest draft of the script, The Hollywood Reporter said.

Joseph Kosinski, who directed Legacy, is attached to helm this installment, which is being developed with a renewed purpose under Alan Horn, who took the reigns of Disney Studios in June.

Some considered the dark and trippy Legacy - which teamed newcomer Garrett Hedlund with Jeff Bridges, star of the 1982 original Tron - a lukewarm performer when it opened in December 2010. But the film grossed $400 million worldwide, good enough to spark interest in prolonging the franchise. With that foundation and a strong brand, Disney believes it can really go for broke with a new movie.

Plot details are being kept under wraps. David DiGilio wrote an earlier draft of the script. Justin Springer, a co-producer on Legacy, is producing Tron 3.

Wigutow is already working with Disney on the adaptation of Peter and the Starcatchers and worked on Parallel, another Disney project being produced by Springer. The scribe, who also wrote Eragon and worked on Relativity’s remake of The Crow and Summit's remake of The Osterman Weekend.
