Back when TRON: Legacy came out, I was pretty damn vocal about my disappointment (and still am today). The film could have been something amazing, instead it was tolerable and filled with too many plotholes to overlook. I understand no film is without fault, but this one had more than I was willing to look past. It crushed me. I was hoping for an amazing science fiction outing and the reboot of a beloved franchise, instead I got Legacy.
In all honesty, I had washed my hands of the franchise and found myself uninterested in whether or not a third film would happen (there was a lot of doubt back then about it). In fact, it wasn’t until the spectacularly well done cartoon show, TRON: Uprising came out, that my faith was restored to the brand to some degree. So when this news came in (from The Hollywood Reporter) I have mixed emotions.
According to the report, Disney is in talks to hire Jesse Wigutow to pen the next draft of the TRON 3 script, meaning the project is finally moving forward. Joseph Kosinski is still set to helm the sequel, which I could live without him doing it again, but I’m still hopeful that this movie manages to make up for the mistakes of Legacy.
Perhaps it’s a fool’s hope, but some hope is better than none at all. Anyway, what do you guys think of seeing another TRON movie?
