There is always a new Disney movie to look forward to, and this year especially, we have so many good ones (Little Mermaid, The Haunted Mansion, Elemental, etc.). Another one we have to soon look forward to is “Tron 3: Ares,” which we already know will feature Jared Leto. Now, we can welcome another big name to The Grid-Evan Peters! Peters recently starred in the eery Netflix series Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story. He is also known for his roles in American Horror Stories and X-Men.
So what do we know about this film so far? Not much at this point, as no plot details have been released. We do know that Leto, who has been attached to the project for several years, is set to play Ares, the manifestation of the program. According to the Hollywood Reporter, it is unclear who Peters would play, although the script calls for a soldier in the computer world and an awkward gamer in the human world.
The original Tron was released in 1982, with Jeff Bridges starring as video game designer Kevin Flynn, who is transported inside his own creation and teams up with Tron, a security program played by Bruce Boxleitner. The sequel was released almost 30 years later in 2010, Tron: Legacy. That film starred Garrett Hedlund and Olivia Wilde and brought back Jeff Bridges. Both the original film and sequel pushed visual effects.
Joachim Ronning is directing the new feature. He has also worked on Maleficent: Mistress of Evil and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man Tell No Tales. This much-anticipated film has no premiere date yet but is due to begin shooting in August in Vancouver. With filming set to start in just a month, we are now so excited for this third Tron movie and will announce more details as they are released!
