Last month, we reported that Disney had committed to producing a third film in the 'Tron' franchise, with the film to act as a direct sequel to 2010's 'Tron Legacy'. Now, the films stars and director Joseph Kosinski have signed on the bottom line, which eyes an October production start.
The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Garrett Hedlund and Olivia Wilde will reprise their roles as Sam Flynn and Quorra, and Joseph Kosinski will helm the sequel. Meanwhile, the Twitter account of the Vancouver film industry, Production Weekly, has apparently leaked the title of the film as 'Tron: Ascension', although that has yet to be confirmed by Disney.
Joseph Kosinski's TRON: ASCENSION is planning to film in Vancouver from Early-October 2015 thru February 2016. http://t.co/ihBaFAc3O5- Production Weekly (@prodweek) March 30, 2015
