TRON 3 Update – Jeff Bridges says script is ready, wants Olivia Wilde to return

Tron Lightcycle Power Run Roller COaster headed to Walt Disney World and Disneyland?

Fans want to know: Is TRON 3 happening or isn’t it?

And if it does happen, is it going to be a sequel to TRON: Legacy or a complete reboot/re-imagining with Jared Leto? Will it be a traditional movie, or the world’s first completely VR movie?

Is the truth somewhere in between?

According to Flynn himself, Jeff Bridges, a script for a third TRON movie has been written and they’re simply waiting on a green light to begin production. In a recent interview with Den of Geek, Bridges said it’s definitely being discussed ad he’d love to return. He also wants Olvia Wilde to return as the character Quorra, who was last seen entering the real world with Sam Flynn at the end of TRON: Legacy.

“Yeah, absolutely!” Bridges hums with that familiar SoCal enthusiasm when asked if he and [TRON: Legacy director Joe] Kosinski want to revisit Flynn’s relationship with Wilde’s Quorra in a potential VR film. “All those things you mentioned, we talked about. And there’s no certainty with any of it, but I’m hoping it comes down. It’d be wild, and you know virtual reality would really lend itself to that medium. I think Joe’s got the script and everything, you know,” Bridges previously said to EW. “Yeah, I don’t know that I’m supposed to talk about it or not. I don’t know. It should be the first virtual reality movie, you know? Wouldn’t that be cool… to see Tron in that world?”

So there’s a script waiting to be filmed, and the actors from the last film are definitely interested in a third movie. But does that mesh with Jared Leto’s supposed involvement? Would he play a new character in TRON 3 with Bridges and Wilde, or would Disney reboot?

With a new roller coaster coming featuring TRON: Legacy characters, a reboot might be ill advised.

One thing seems certain — Tron doesn’t want anything to do with another TRON movie. Bruce Boxleitner has said that he’s not interested because Disney has taken too long.

Eh, money talks. And if not? They can always slap Boxleitner’s face on another actor thanks to CGI.

It’s not like Tron was actually in TRON: Legacy for more than a few minutes, anyway.
