Michael Sheen Confirmed for Tron Legacy


Walt Disney Pictures confirmed the rumors today on Twitter that Michael Sheen will have a role in director Joseph Kosinski’s Tron Legacy, targeted for a November or December, 2010 release. Sheen will reportedly play the villain, who, he himself tweeted, is “in fact not a person at all.”

In the 3D adventure, Sam Flynn (Garrett 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.
