April 9, 2011 - Tron 3 / Joseph Kosinski talks about sequel

Scooped on Saturday, April 9, 2011

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.

I really liked Tron: Legacy (here, Goiter would jump in to say I was prepositioned to like it, since it involves a dystopic society, and I'm a sucker for those sorts of stories). Goiter and I ended up seeing it twice, and we have only done that for a handful of movies (the others being True Grit, Rango, and, because Mal invited us, Prince of Persia).

Our first viewing (only a week after I saw the original Tron for the first time) was the inaugural screening of a new (true) IMAX screen in the St. Louis area, in 3-D. Unfortunately, I don't see 3-D properly, so well before Sam reached Kastor's bar, I was seeing double. It was much more enjoyable the second time, when we took my teenage brothers to see it in 2-D (purposefully going 30 minutes out of our way, to the only theater in mid-Missouri, it seems, that was showing it in 2-D). We all enjoyed it - my brothers haven't seen the original Tron, but they had a blast. I definitely plan to buy the DVD as soon as the price drops a little bit.

I just watched it and thought it was pretty good.

I will have to rent it and form my own opinion but this guy was pretty negative and said they really missed the mark. i think his gripe was that the effects were too CGI (maybe a bit to polished?) now? I dunno... I'll have to see it.

Atrejub, while I can see 3d just fine, many movies are not even worth it (maybe Tron legacy is?) Resident Evil: Afterlife didnt even utilize any special scenes for 3D (like in the 80's where they would deliberaely stick in a shot of a treebranch or some other object sticking REALLY close to the camera for a "WOW its 3D!" effect. these new movies dont make use of the 3D, primarily because they know once it hits DVD, it will be watched without glasses for the remainder of it's shelf life.

It's a gimmick.. hell I didnt even bother seeing Avatar in 3d when it was out... saw that one in 2d also.
