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. Almost.
Speaking to NextMovie, Tron: Legacy star Garrett Hedlund (recently, more notably of On the Road) “confirmed,” so much as an actor at a press event can confirm something, that he’ll be leading Tron 3. While only noting that both he and Disney are “very excited,” someone (this is an honest-to-God mystery to yours truly) indicates that shooting will commence at one point or another in 2014; it might not be, say, 2013 because Joseph Kosinski is busy with something, though I neither know nor care.
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?) Then again, the official announcement of a third Tron — teasers, logos, and 7/11 cups included — would not justify anticipation in the slightest, either.
Do Hedlund’s comments indicate something bigger with Tron 3?
