The sequel to 2010’s Tron: Legacy will be filmed in Vancouver beginning this fall.
According to Vancity Buzz entertainment contributor Lindsay Barker, Walt Disney Pictures has green lighted the third film in the Tron series. Filming is scheduled to begin on October 5, 2015.
The project has been in development since the success of the 2010 film, which raked in $400 million with a $170 million budget.
