Can You Not: Jared Leto May Get His Method Acting All Over a Potential Tron 3

Come on, Disney. Fight for the fans.

Hot on the heels of Tron: Legacy director Joseph Kosinski insisting that the supposed Tron 3 sequel isn't dead comes rumors that Disney is actually considering casting for the film. The terrible thing is that they're looking at potentially bringing Jared Leto on board for the project, and frankly, I'd like to just offer a resounding, emphatic, fuck no.

Tron 3 Has Found A Writer But Will It Have An Audience?

Thank You?

I remember seeing preview footage of Tron: Legacy at San Diego Comic-Con and being pretty impressed. The 3D actually made sense and they seemed to have a good handle on a story that would do the original film justice. When I saw the full movie I thought it was good, not great, and didn't expect them to make any more. While the idea was bounced around for a while, it looks like it's finally gaining momentum.

Bruce Boxleitner Says Tron 3 is On …3

And So It Begins

Can't... not... rhyme... There have been rumors of yet a third dip into the setting of Tron since literally before the DVD release of Tron: Legacy. No, wait, I just checked. They've been around since the April before Tron: Legacy's December release. So lets just say that for better or worse there's a precedent, and furthermore one does not cast Cillian Murphy in a role with three minutes of screentime unless perhaps one plans to use his character in a later movie. And now the Tron sequel's sequel is getting its confirmation biased by none other than Bruce Boxleitner, Tron himself.

More Evidence For A Third Tron Movie

i'll just leave this here

Rumblings and rumors of a planned third Tron movie have been going on for months and months, beginning with some dubious hints garnered from, of all things, the British Board of Film Classification. A mystery track on the Blu-ray edition of Tron: Legacy listed some of the major actors from Legacy as starring in it, but no one could figure out what it was. That track turned out to be, instead of a teaser of a movie to come, more of a coda on the end of the last movie, a ten minute short about what actually happened to Flynn the Elder at the end of the movie and the post-movie career path of Flynn the Younger. But now, in the form of a leaked easter egg from the Tron: Legacy DVD, we've got another tease.

Tron: The Next Day is Probably Not A Teaser for Tron 3


A 10-minute Tron short was released online with a story that filled in what happened between Tron and Tron: Legacy. Featuring unused footage from the latter, everyone is wondering if it's an extended version of a 3-minute short that is set to appear as an easter egg on the Tron: Legacy DVD (expected in April). Some rumors are that the short is meant to be a possible teaser for a third Tron movie. (No such movie has been officially announced or green-lit, though there's been a lot of speculation despite Tron: Legacy's performance in theaters.) Before watching, this video does include SPOILERS, specifically related to the Flynn Lives. (/film via io9)

TRON: Legacy Scores the First iPad-Specific iAd

Early reviews of TRON: Legacy have been mixed, but Disney seems intent on making the movie into a full-blown cultural event, and it's been doing a pretty good job, inspiring waves of fan nostalgia, more lightcycle tributes on the Internet than you can shake a stick at, and even a TRON-inspired Playboy shoot. Now, TRON: Legacy is pioneering a new advertising format: iPad-specific iAds. Ad Age says the format will be launched widely in early 2011, but TRON: Legacy is getting the first crack at it.

The full-screen "Tron" ad, which will run in iPad apps such as TV Guide, includes close to 10 minutes of video, images from the movie, a theater locator with showtimes, and a preview of the movie soundtrack with the option to purchase on iTunes without leaving the ad. For the first time in any iAd, users will also be able to send email straight from within the ad.
