Actors Garrett Hedlund and Olivia Wilde will be reprising their roles as Sam Flynn and Quorra from Tron: Legacy in Disney’s upcoming Tron 3.
On top of that, Tron: Legacy director, Joseph Kosinski, will also be returning to direct the new Tron film.
2010’s Tron: Legacy was a sequel that came nearly three decades after the release of the original Tron in 1982. 1982’s Tron starred Jeff Bridges, Bruce Boxleitner and David Warner, and was directed by Steven Lisberger. The film was not a massive success when it was initially released, as it didn’t even manage to double it’s budget of $17 million at the box office. However, the film amassed a large cult following in the years after it’s theatrical release, which then lead Disney to eventually give the film a big-budget sequel
Tron: Legacy was fairly successful, receiving mixed to positive reviews from critics and fans, and grossing over $400 million on a $170 million budget. Jeff Bridges also reprised his role as Kevin Flynn in the film. As of now, it is unconfirmed if in some way he will return for Tron 3 as well.
This year, Olivia Wilde starred in the horror film The Lazarus Effect, alongside Mark Duplass, Donald Glover and Evan Peters. Later this year, she can be seen in films including Meadowlands and Love the Coopers.
Hedlund, on the other hand, since Tron: Legacy in 2010, has starred in such films as Inside Llewyn Davis, Unbroken and On the Road. In July, he will be playing the role of Hook in Joe Wright’s Pan, which will also star Hugh Jackman, Rooney Mara, Amanda Seyfried and Cara Delevingne.
Although Disney has not officially confirmed the film yet, it will supposedly begin filming in October this year. There is no title or release date set for the film either.
