Though talks for a sequel (and theme park attractions) were initially strong during it’s release three years ago, the follow-up to ‘Tron: Legacy’ hit a few roadblocks along the way and basically stalled out. However, the ball started rolling again a few months ago when writer Jesse Wigutow was hired to work on a draft. Shortly after that, Garrett Hedlund announced that he was on board for the next movie along with Bruce Boxleiter, producer Justin Springer, and director Joseph Kosinski. Now, one more member of the gang has surfaced to talk about returning.
In a recent interview with Hit Fix while doing promotional work for her latest film ‘The Incredible Burt Wonderstone’ starring Steve Carell and Jim Carrey, Olivia Wilde talked a little bit about reprising her role of Quorra from the second film in ‘Tron 3’. In the video below, she talks about how much fun the third movie could be now that all the exposition is out there:
While she doesn’t give anything away, Wilde certainly sounds excited to get back together with the whole gang to revisit this trilogy that’s over 30 years in the making. This makes me quite happy that she’s on board because without her or her character, the whole third film would just fall apart.
I know a bunch of people these days aren’t really into ‘Tron’ or ‘Tron: Legacy’, but I’m definitely a fan that’s looking forward to seeing the climax of the trilogy. And Wilde is completely right in saying that there’s some fun to be had in a third film. Now that they’ve established *SPOILERS* that not only can users enter the Grid, but programs can enter the real world as well, I’m very much looking forward to an all out war between the digital and physical worlds with Hedlund and Cillian Murphy’s characters at the center of it all.
What are you most looking forward to in ‘Tron 3’? With key players such as Sam Flynn, Quorra, and Tron coming back, do you think that Jeff Bridges will return to his role of Kevin Flynn, or even to his role of Clu, despite the ending of ‘Tron: Legacy’?
