Walt Disney Pictures has just delivered 34 new production stills and concept art from Tron Legacy, a film that has endured some scrutiny as of late concerning reshoots and rumors lead actor Garrett Hedlund wasn’t cutting the mustard.
Director Joseph Kosinski addressed the concerns in an interview with Collider recently saying:
While Kosinski does reference Hedlund’s character, Sam Flynn, he doesn’t say anything that would lead us to believe the rumors were true. Of course, it’s not likely a director would throw his star and film by relation under the bus, so take his statement for whatever you deem it to be worth.
Tron Legacy will be released in theaters on December 17 and picks up 25 years from where the 18-year-old original left off. Sam Flynn (Hedlund), the tech-savvy 27-year-old son of Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges), looks into his father’s disappearance and finds himself pulled into the same world of fierce programs and gladiatorial games where his father has been living for 25 years. Along with Kevin’s loyal confidant (Olivia Wilde), father and son embark on a life-and-death journey across a visually-stunning cyber universe that has become far more advanced and exceedingly dangerous.
