Writer Jesse Wigatow has been hired by disney to rewrite the screenplay for Tron 3. The movie studio seems to remain interested in continuing the story started with 2010's Tron Legacy, but they are having troubles getting the new chapter polished into a workable shape.
Wigatow doesn't have any completed screen credits in his career but enough experience to get the job. He's worked on two developing projects for Walt Disney Pictures as well as the script for remakes of The Crow and The Osterman Weekend.- The Hollywood Reporter. Comment on this Scoop (0)

David DiGilio has been hired to write the screenplay for Tron 3. Although the talk after the release of Tron Legacy was that its screenwriting duo, Adam Horowitz and Adam Kitsis, would come back to write the third adventure, the official word is that the pair are too busy with producing their fantasy ABC TV show Once Upon a Time, set to debut this fall. However, unofficially, part of the decision might lie with the luke warm box office returns for Legacy.
It remains unclear whether Tron Legacy directo Joseph Kosinski will come back to helm the second sequel.- The Hollywood Reporter. Comment on this Scoop (0)

With Tron Legacy now available on DVD, its director was asked if there has been any progress on developing the proposed Tron 3 sequel. Yes, there has been progress!
"We're working on the story right now," Joseph Kosinski told Assignment X (and reported vis Slashfilm.) "Once we get a script we're all really happy with, we’ll take it to the powers that be and see if we can go back to the grid."
Kosinski did elaborate further on where the sequel was headed regarding two of the new characters introduced in the second film. "I think we will pick with where Tron Legacy left off with Quorra [Olivia Wilde] in the real world and what does that mean and the possibilities it opens up for the next chapter. It’s that relationship between the two of them that’s the next step."
And he also confirmed the involvement of what many of us assumed would happen in a third Tron. "Dillinger [David Warner] was a really important part of the first film and felt like an easy way to continue that storyline and thread to have his son in the new movie. That way you have people ask those questions of what the Dillinger legacy is in the world of Tron. We didn’t want to ignore it completely and it leaves a really nice springboard for some intertwining development for the next film."
Kosinski also told the outlet that it was his intent to return as director on Tron 3 provided the same team that made Legacy all came back too.- Assignment X. Comment on this Scoop (4)

An individual that claims to have worked on a teaser for Tron 3 contacted Ain't It Cool News. According to the scooper three scenes were filmed that would bridge the gap between the end of Tron Legacy and the next Tron movie, and these teasers would appear in the forthcoming DVD release for Tron Legacy.
The first teaser shows Bruce Boxleitner reprising his role of Alan Bradley and Dan Shor, the actor who played the computer program RAM in the first Tron, playing RAM's user. "Turns out that 'Ram' was apparently running the FLYNN LIVES campaign and he's frantically destroying all of that data and files, as Alan confronts him," explains AICN's Harry Knowles. "Dan apparently utters the line, 'Why did Kevin give you the cool name' - which means to my way of thinking that after Flynn came out of the Grid, he sought out the human soul of Ram and befriended him and started calling him RAM - you know - some geek that wrote that Actuarial Program that helped people plan for the future."
The second teaser has Quorra (Olivia Wilde) arriving at ENCOM HQ riding Sam Flynn's Ducati motorcycle. The press are there and they mob her. Quorra tells them that she has spoken with Kevin Flynn and it was yesterday.
Finally, the third teaser described shows only text appearing on two monitor screens. Edward Dillinger, the character played by David Warner in the first Tron, is chatting with his son, Edward Jr. The two Dillingers are talking about what's going on, and that these events are all going according to their plan.- Ain't It Cool News.

Disney has hired Lost screenwriters/executive producers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz to begin writing a script for a third Tron movie. The logline to the second sequel hasn't emerged and at this stage no one knows if any returning characters from either the original Tron or Tron Legacy will be back in movie #3 although The Hollywood Reporter claims that insider talk is that the two writers are looking to make Tron 3 complete a trilogy. That implies the return of some characters from the first two films.
If there is any clauses in Tron Legacy star Garrett Hedlund's contract to reprise his character of Sam Flynn in a sequel, it's not publicly known. No deal exists to bring back Legacy director Joseph Kosinki or producer Sean Bailey (the latter of whom is now the head of production for the studio.)- The Hollywood Reporter.
