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.
