At this point, and against the better judgement of mankind, signs of life are cropping up for Tron 3. The whole screenwriter thing was, and still is, a good example of Disney creating a bit of press momentum for a stillborn project — someone‘s been hired, so something‘s going to cohere! — but this next bit is almost a meaningful announcement.

So, yes, Tron 3 is starting to look a little bit more like a real thing, but not quite enough for anyone to justify anticipation. (Remember when we basically heard the same thing last year?)
