“Production on the film is expected to begin later this year in August at Vancouver, Canada, with Jared Leto starring and Jesse Wigutow writing the script for the next project. In addition to starring in the third installment in development, Leto is also serving as a producer on the film alongside Justin Springer, Jeffrey Silver and Emma Ludbrook, with Sean Bailey and Sam Dickerman attached as executive producers. Additional details about the upcoming film, such as cast and plot information, are likely to be revealed as it moves into production later this year,” a report from Deadline (via Collider).
It should be noted that what is news today many years ago was already an open rumor. In fact, in a recent interview promoted Morbiusthe actor Leto wanted to talk about Tron 3.
“I am a super fan of Tron and we are working hard on Tron with our amazing partners at Disney. Just an amazing group of creative people. We are getting closer. We are getting closer and who knows. Something may come sooner rather than later, ”she mentioned at the time.
On the other hand, the name of the director of what will be called Tron: Ares. Is about Joachim Rønning. The Norwegian filmmaker is an old Disney acquaintance, as he has worked on major projects for the studio such as Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge and Maleficent.
Will they continue the story of the sequel?
Attention SPOILERS. Tron: Legacy (2010) ends when Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund) returns to the real world in which he is also Quorra (Olivia Wilde). She is a ISO that he can jump out of the virtual world, which could have shocking consequences for Tron 3. But maybe they do some kind of covert reset and the story goes in a very different direction. This is thought very strongly as there has been no talk of the returns of Hedlund or Wilde.
On the other hand, there has been no talk of a return of Jeff Bridges, who in the 1982 film played Kevin Flynn. Also, in 2010 the actor returned for the role but already aged. Being the father of Sam, the protagonist, Kevin was now something of a legend and leader in the technological world. However, almost nothing is known about what happened during the almost 30 years that he spent in this place before the arrival of his son.
Taking that into account, it could be that Jared Leto enters precisely to embody this character in an intermediate plot between both projects. Although there are many theories that are already being considered, the last word should be known very soon.
Tron 3 will arrive a year after the 40th anniversary from the premiere of the first part. In addition, it will appear 13 years after theaters saw a sequel that revolutionized science fiction and left thousands of fans wanting more.
