WonderCon '13: Director Updates Status Of TRON: LEGACY Sequel

At WonderCon to promote his new film, Oblivion - starring Tom Cruise, director Joseph Kosinski gives an update on the sequel to Tron: Legacy. Says a new draft of the script should be delivered soon.

Tron Legacy sequel Joseph Kosinkski

Director Joseph Kosinski was at WonderCon 2013 to promote his gorgeous upcoming sci-fi epic starring Tom Cruise, a film that started out at Disney who passed after deeming the subject matter to be too adult. No such barriers with Tron: Legacy a film that earner $400M worldwide on a $170M production budget back in 2010. Disney expected a bigger box-office haul from the Tron sequel which is why we're three years removed from Legacy's release and have very little traction on a third entry. But are the wheels finally starting to turn? Kosinksi gives us an update courtesy of Latino Review:

"We’ve been working on the story for four years now. The first draft, [in which] Jesse Wigutow is writing it, is supposed to come in the next couple of weeks so the idea we have is really exciting. It has to be pretty exciting enough to get everyone back together. Those are pretty hard movies to make. Legacy was almost three years. We got a really exciting idea for it. As long as the script can kind of deliver on that—the interest is there on the studio side. It’s going to have enough creative juices to have in order to dive back in. We got some exciting ideas—so we’ll see."

Doesn't sound like a ringing endorsement but as Kosinski said if Wigutow's ( It Runs in the Family) script is fantastic maybe we'll be hearing that Disney is fast tracking a sequel to Legacy in the coming weeks. Hopefully, this is a project that will happen sooner rather than later as Legacy definitely had some interesting pieces in places for a third film to complete the trilogy.

Kosinski has produced Kubrick-grade visuals and has subtly added innovation where needed. Hope this is good.., but the day Kosinski gets "the" script, he's gonna' drop something insane! It'll be like getting hit upside the head with a wet whole tuna at a fish market. Say wha--?

In all seriousness, whether this film bombs, Kosinski deserves another shot. I don't think I've ever stated that before, but he obviously has high level connections and can get this cocaine trafficking game known as filmmaking going. I know.., but Kosinski can visually deliver on many levels.., why don't we help him out if this Cruise/Freeman thang' doesn't take root?

I love that damn score from TRON: Legacy and the Reconfigured album with that M83 remix of "The Fall." Ignore the "Ghost In The Shell" autotuned vocals at the beginning of the song; it's a great track!

Anyone digging Daft Punk should check out some friends(haven't chatted in a few years) of mine: VHS or Beta. "Night on Fire" is their best album. I still laugh at them for being on Conan. They're great guys!

Yes.., I'm bigger than any big deal that I could kinda' be a part of.

I made a bad call on Tron Legacy. I bought it and the Original the night Lecacy was released on DVD.
Really didnt like it or Garrett Hedlund at all. I put it in my DVD stacks and never watched it again until a few weeks ago.
It was actually a great movie that I think I didnt like because it wasnt exactly like Tron. Maybe I was being defensive of the Old School film but for whatever reason I didnt give it a chance.
I'd give Tron a 5* rating and Tron Legacy a 5* also. All the acting, directing, casting was perfect. Basically it couldnt have been better.

I dont understand working on a script for 4 years, but whatever.

Loved Tron Legacy. Great sequel to the original which was also a terrific movie. They should have started work on this right after the release of legacy. Can't wait to see whats in the pipeline for this.

In the past few years I have found only two films that truly stand out and immediately purchased on bluray when became available...the first was Tron Legacy and the second was Dredd. Just love these films and everything about them....bring on the sequels.
LEOSTRATOR - 3/31/2013, 3:39 PM
@gaikinger. Dredd was off the chain, under rated CBM of the year. That movie reminds me of the old Charles Bronson's movies like Death Wish.

Tron was one of the worst Sci Fi movies in the past 10 years. Those who probably enjoyed it, enjoyed it due to the nostalgia effect of the first one in the 80's/
