Olivia Wilde and Garrett Hedlund will return for ‘TRON 3’
According to The Hollywood Reporter, both Olivia Wilde and Garrett Hedlund will return to reprise their roles as Quorra and Sam Flynn in the upcoming sequel to “TRON: Legacy,” which is for now tentatively titled “TRON 3.” Disney has yet to make an official announcement on casting, story or the official title, although recent speculation has said that the movie will be called “TRON: Accession.” Disney is probably holding back on releasing any information until D23, which will take place in August of this year.
From The Hollywood Reporter:
Olivia Wilde and Garrett Hedlund are set to return for Disney’s Tron 3.
The pair will reprise their characters from 2010’s Tron: Legacy in the sequel that is being directed by Joseph Kosinski.
Legacy was the sequel to the 1982 sci-fi film that took place inside a computer world known as the Grid and starred Jeff Bridges and Bruce Boxleitner. While not a hit at the time, it later drew a big cult following and became an influence on filmmakers and pop culture.
Decades later, Disney revisited the world with Legacy. The story revealed that the computer programmer character played by Bridges had a son (Hedlund) who jumps into the Grid to find his father. Wilde was Quorra, an algorithm made flesh who also happened to kick butt.
Disney has been developing a sequel to Legacy since the movie grossed $400 million worldwide. Hedlund in 2012 said he would return to the visual effects-heavy franchise but that was when the project was circling a 2014 start.
The project is now looking to shoot this fall, likely in Vancouver. Plot details are being kept offline.
