The Third TRON Film Moves Forward With a New Writer

December 5, 2012


Screenwriter Jesse Wigutow has signed on to rewrite the next, still-untitled TRON sequel. The Hollywood Reporter says that he'll rewrite the current draft by David DiGilio, Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz and the studio appears to have renewed interest in bringing about the sequel sooner rather than later.

2010's TRON: Legacy starred Jeff Bridges, Garrett Hedlund, Olivia Wilde, Bruce Boxleitner, James Frain, Beau Garrett and Michael Sheen and was, itself, a sequel to Walt Disney Pictures' 1982 sci-fi adventure. Although a specific plot has not yet been revealed, the next chapter was said earlier this year to involve an exploration of life and death in the digital realm.

Legacy director Joseph Kosinski is attached to return for the new film and it could become his next project after next year's Oblivion, starring Tom Cruise. That film hits IMAX theaters on April 12, expanding to theaters everywhere on April 19.
