First rumored last month, it appears that Walt Disney Pictures is, indeed, moving forward with TRON 3 as The Hollywood Reporter today confirms Olivia Wilde will be reprising her role as everyone’s favorite ISO, Quorra! She joins fellow returning lead Garret Hedlund, who is set to return as Sam Flynn. TRON: Legacy helmer Joseph Kosinski will also be back with plans for production to take place in Vancouver later this year.
Released in 1982, the original TRON underperformed at the box office, but nonetheless managed to find an important place in pop culture over the next few decades. The sequel was scripted by Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz from a story they developed with Brian Klugman and Lee Sternhal, based in turn on characters created by Bonnie MacBird and original TRON helmer Steven Lisberger. That film’s worldwide box office exceeded $400 million.
Wilde previously reprised the Quorra role for an episode of the short-lived animated series “TRON: Uprising,” although the episode itself took place prior to the events of TRON: Legacy. Most recently, Wilde starred in director David Gelb’s horror thriller The Lazarus Effect opposite Mark Duplass, Sarah Bolger, Evan Peters and Donald Glover.
There’s no official title or plot info for TRON 3 quite yet, but check back for updates as soon as they become available.
