Tron 3, the sequel to Tron: Legacy (and the third film in the series after the original 1982 Tron), picked up some steam last week with the announcement that screenwriter Jesse Wigutow (Peter and the Starcatchers, Eragon) had been hired to rewrite the film. And now director Joseph Kosinski, who helmed Legacy and is attached to Tron 3, is talking about his plans for the third film in the series.
“I’ve said it would have to be our Empire Strikes Back for me to come back and for me to pull the whole team back together,” he tells Collider. “I think we do have that idea. We do have the idea that feels big and really blows the doors off this franchise. It’s hinted at promises of something for two movies now, for thirty years, so it’s time to deliver on that. But the script’s got to be at a level that makes it worth going back for, because it’s a lot of work to make a movie like this and it’s a multi-year project. So we’ve got our writer Jesse Wigutow on it right now writing, and fingers crossed if it all comes together, as we hope it will, there could be another Tron in the next few years, and it’s going to be awesome.”
