Breaking news! The Disney company has announced that ‘Tron 3’ is officially in development!
Jared Leto is reportedly being considered to star in the next exciting chapter of the Tron movie franchise. Disney is also searching for a movie director for the sequel. Although not confirmed, it’s hoped that Tron: Legacy director Joseph Kosinski will return.
Disney music executive Mitchell Leib discussed the future of the Tron franchise in a recent podcast. He first talked about working with Daft Punk on the music for Tron: Legacy, but then switched into a conversation about the development of a tentative “Tron 3” sequel. He confirmed that Disney already has a script in hand, too. With the success of Disney+, “Tron 3” may come out as a direct-to-streaming movie.
“Now with Disney+, I think there’s opportunities to be creating content that we otherwise wouldn’t have been able to create, you know because we’re in the movie business,” Leib explained. “We’re in the big movie business, and unless it’s a big movie idea we don’t make small movies. We’re only after basically billion dollar box office hits. On the one hand, that’s great. On the other hand, that’s a very narrow sleeve to operate in, and Disney+ I think is going to afford us the opportunity to expand and get much more diversified in the kind of content we can create. And Daft Punk has a bit of a television and movie development company, and all kinds of things they’re into, businesses they’re into. So I had lunch with Paul Hahn to further a bit of a starting conversation that we’re looking at making a sequel to Tron now, we’re looking at Tron 3. And we’ve got a great script, I mean a really phenomenal script that we’re very excited about. Whereas the timing wasn’t right to have done it years ago, I think we feel like the timing is right now, and I feel like we’ve learned a lot of lessons from that last movie.”
We’ll provide updates when more information becomes available.
