TRON: LEGACY Scribes Talk Upcoming Sequel
Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, who co-wrote TRON: Legacy and will co-produce its upcoming sequel, update on the third Tron film. They also briefly discuss whether or not Kevin Flynn will return.
Speaking with io9 at WonderCon this weekend, Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis - who co-wrote the 2010 sci-fi film TRON: Legacy and will both produce its upcoming sequel - update on the third film in the popular film series. Due to their current work on ABC's Once Upon A Time, the two are not writing TRON 3. "We are working on a sequel," said Horowitz. "Eddie and I aren't writing the sequel -- because of the show [Once Upon a Time] we've moved to be co-producers on it. But there's a script being written right now."
"Dave DiGilio is writing it," added Kitsis. "[Joseph Kosinski] is right now shooting Oblivion, but we've had a lot of meetings and conversations and we've seen the first draft of the Tron sequel."
The two were asked about the possible return of Kevin Flynn (played by Jeff Bridges in the first two films), despite (Spoilers for those who haven't seen Legacy) the character possibly dying at the end of the last film. Horowitz responded, "I would say the definition of life and death in the digital realm --" finished Kitsis, "Will be explored in the sequel!" Concerning the possible return of Quorra (played by Olivia Wilde in Legacy), Horowitz moved to the next roundtable.
Recently, we heard from Bruce Boxleitner (the original Tron) that TRON 3 may begin filming in 2014, when Joseph Kosinski finishes shooting Oblivion. Little is known about the story for the threequel so far, but stay tuned to CBM for more news on TRON 3.
