Ready to go back to the grid? Well if writers Tron: Legacy, Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz are to be believed, we may be going back soon. While they won’t be writing the Tron threquel since they are now the showrunners for ABC’s Once Upon a Time, they can tell us who is. “Dave DiGilio is writing it. [Joseph Kosinski] is right now shooting Oblivion, but we’ve had a lot of meetings and conversations and we’ve seen the first draft of the Tron sequel.”
More possible spoilery type things are after the jump.
Kevin Flynn, as played by Jeff Bridges, is still the center of the movies. Yes, I know, he and his digital doppelganger merged and apparently died at the end of the second movie, but as Horowitz said, “the definition of life and death in the digital realm–“ and was interrupted by Kitsis, “–will be explored in the sequel!” – Another key piece of information is that Bridges was instrumental in getting the second movie made, a full 28 years after the first one, making it sound like his involvement is key to a third outing.
Also key? Apparently the success or failure of the upcoming animated series Tron: Uprising. According to a Disney insider Jim Hill, the only way the mouse will even consider a third movie is if the animated TV series that premieres sometime this year is a hit.
Does the thought of a third Tron movie work for you or should they just leave it well enough alone.
