Gwyneth Paltrow silver dress on the Oscars' Red Carpet Gwyneth Paltrow at the Academy Awards Donning a shining silver dress, Gwyneth Paltrow arrives at the 2011 Academy Awards held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Paltrow's latest movie, Country Strong, was up for a Best Song Oscar. It lost to the Toy Story 3 ditty "We Belong Together," by Randy Newman. More than a decade ago, Gwyneth Paltrow took home the Best Actress Oscar for John Madden's Shakespeare in Love (1998), a romantic comedy-drama also featuring Joseph Fiennes (as William Shakespeare), Judi Dench, Geoffrey Rush, and this year's Best Actor Oscar winner, Colin Firth (The King's Speech). Paltrow's (moderately) gender-bending Shakespeare in Love heroine remains her only Oscar-nominated performance to date. Directed by Shana Feste, Country Strong fared decently at the U.S. box office, but not as well as some had expected. Besides Gwyneth Paltrow, the cast includes »

Tron is a 1980’s classic movie. The film, which starred Jeff Bridges, captured the imagination of a generation of film goers. In 2010 came follow-up film Tron: Legacy, and starred Garret Hedlund as Sam Flynn, the son of Jeff Bridges’ character from the first film, Jeff Bridges and Olivia Wilde as warrior algorithm Quorra. Rumours have been circulating for a while that a third film is underway and recently it has seemed like this is much more of a possibility.
Whilst at Tribeca Film Festival Wilde gave an update on the status of the project and revealed that we will see more of her character, though this time in the real world…
“The delay has only ever been story, finding the right story. It hasn’t been anything else. There’s never been a time where we wanted to go and then schedules got in the way. It’s only been like, »

Wilde made a memorable first impression in the franchise in Tron: Legacy as the warrior algorithm Quorra, who was not afraid of kicking a little butt to protect tech prodigy Sam Flynn.
Wilde recently told Collider that she is excited to follow up Quorra leaving the Grid for the real world at the end of Tron: Legacy.
"I love this character of Quorra so much and I've built her with Joe Kosinski and we took her such a long way from what was written to what we made," she said. "I mean, I fought for her to be this kind of androgynous child and that's so not what you typically see in these movies, so I'm so grateful that the producers let me play with her and make her this strange little being. »
It looks as though Disney is finally ready to press ahead again with a new Tron movie. Since the release of Tron: Legacy back in 2010, there's been continual chatter about a Tron 3, reuniting Garrett Hedlund and Olivia Wilde. Yet until recently, there's been precious little sign of progress.
"The delay has only ever been story, finding the right story. It hasn't been anything else", she affirmed. "So, in the past year, the right story kind of came together and we felt 'oh, this actually – this might be the right one to tell’. And, you know, there’s still a lot »
Talk of Tron 3 – which may be titled Tron: Ascension – stirred up recently when a series of Tweets and innocent production notices appeared on the web. Which meant the entire blogosphere blew up over the threequel’s existence. Since then we’ve yet to receive official confirmation from the studio on the follow up to 2010’s Tron: Legacy. However, one of the stars of the franchise, Olivia Wilde, spoke to Collider this week and their chat seemingly provided verification of its own. To start, the actress responded to the supposed October production start date:
“You know, I’ve heard the same. I think there’s a lot of people really excited to make it happen within Disney and in the world, and we’ve been dreaming of making it since we finished Legacy so I would be thrilled.”
Part of that dream has involved what a majority of sequels require: a solid foundation. »

If you’re a first-time film director, and you’re making a dark, female drama, well then it helps to have a marquee actress in your corner. Such was the case for Dp-turned-director Reed Morano and her film Meadowland. While it’s typically the indie director (and producers) who face the uphill battle of getting a script to their wish headliner, Morano had the good fortune of being sought out by Tron: Legacy actress Olivia Wilde. “I was begging (the director),” says Wilde… »
Tron 3 was in the planning stages well before Tron: Legacy hit theaters in 2010, but five years passed before the sequel moved forward. Everything started to come together quite quickly once it was announced, with director Joseph Kosinski set to return along with leads Garrett Hedlund and Olivia Wilde. In a recent interview with Collider, Olivia Wilde claims that the only delay on the movie was breaking the story. They needed to get it right before they prematurely told everyone it was happening. She then confirmed that the sequel will pick up shortly after the events seen in Tron: Legacy, with a story that revolves around her character Quorra existing in the real world alongside Sam Flynn. About the screenplay she says:
"I love this character of Quorra so much and I've built her with Joe Kosinski and we took her such a long way from what was written to what we made. »
We’ve been talking Tron 3 ever since Tron: Legacy hit theaters back in December 2010, but it wasn’t until last month that it started to seem like a third installment would actually happen. First a rumor surfaced claiming that the film might go into production in the fall in Vancouver, then a Production Weekly tweet specified an early October start and then after that we found out that Garrett Hedlund and Olivia Wilde were expected to reprise their roles. All good news, but none of it has been confirmed by Disney or any of the folks involved, until now.

Vin Diesel is no doubt on cloud nine right now. Having only been released for less than a week, Diesel’s Fast & Furious 7 has already grossed over $400 million worldwide, paving the way for more high-speed car high-jinks in the coming years. But for now, the actor is stepping out of the driver’s seat and into something a little more mellow.
Deadline is reporting that Vin Diesel and comedy-actor Chris Tucker (Silver Linings Playbook) are set to join the already stellar cast for director Ang Lee’s (Life of Pi) newest project, Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk.
The film tells the story of 19-year-old soldier Billy Lynn and his squad, who survive an Iraq battle that is captured by embedded news cameras, causing them to become celebrated as heroes. They are brought home by the Us administration for a promotional tour that culminates at the halftime show of »

After several years of speculation and anticipation, it seems as though Tron 3 is finally moving forward. Per The Hollywood Reporter, Tron: Legacy actors Garrett Hedlund (Sam Flynn) and Olivia Wilde (Quorra), along with director Joseph Kosinski, have been reassembled by Disney to take audiences back to the Grid.
Mercifully, fans now won’t have to wait another 28 years for the franchise to continue (like last time), but years of fan dreaming and the series’ inherent limitless potential have ensured that the next chapter has no choice but to be bigger and bolder. The third film will undoubtedly continue to carry forward certain story threads left dangling by Legacy, such as Quorra’s existence outside the Grid, and retain a number of basic series staples, like disc wars and lightcycles, while offering audiences a fresh experience different from its predecessors.
Though it will have to keep moving the franchise in new directions, »

It's nearly five years since Tron: Legacy massaged our eyeballs, and Disney's still slowly putting together its sequel.
Legacy's director Joseph Kosinksi, who's since made the Tom Cruise sci-fi Oblivion, has been attached to Tron 3 for some time. Joining him, it's been revealed, will be Legacy's leads Olivia Wilde and Garrett Hedlund.
That Wilde and Hedlund are coming back isn't too much of a surprise, given how pivotal they were to the previous film, but it's a sign, at least, that Tron 3's still definitely happening. In fact, The Hollywood Reporter says that Tron 3 is likely to start filming in Vancouver in the autumn.
Alas, we didn't say the best part, but hopefully Daft Punk will be back, too

Great news for Tron fans! It looks like a third movie in the famous Disney franchise is in the works, and both Olivia Wilde and Garrett Hedlund will be reprising the roles of their characters from 2010's Tron: Legacy for the upcoming flick. The Hollywood Reporter was first to report that the sequel is underway, noting that the sci-fi film will be directed once again by Joseph Kosinski. While plot details have yet to be revealed, the report states production is slated to begin shooting this fall, likely in Vancouver, and Justin Springer will be involved as a producer. Legacy was the sequel to the 1982 sci-fi film starring Jeff Bridges and Bruce Boxleitner, which took place inside a computer world known »

A rumour floated our way last month that Tron 3 would be begin filming later this year. At the time, it was up in the air as to whether or not the sequel would be going ahead, but now it appears we have our answer, with The Hollywood Reporter confirming that the movie is indeed going ahead, and that Olivia Wilde will reprise her role as Quarra, alongside Garrett Hedlund's Sam Flynn. The publication also reports that Tron: Legacy's Joseph Kosinski will be back at the helm, with the movie set to begin shooting in the Autumn. There is no official word on the title (though rumours of Tron: Ascension has been doing the rounds for a while) or plot at this time, but I have a feeling we'll hear more over the coming weeks and months. »

Tron 3, which is rumored to be titled Tron Ascension, will indeed bring back Olivia Wilde as Quorra. She joins previously announced Tron: Legacy co-star Garrett Hedlund. Joseph Kosinski is also confirmed to be returning to direct this follow-up to his 2010 Disney sequel.
Tron: Legacy was the long-awaited continuation of the 1982 flop-turned-cult favorite Tron, which took its hero inside a computer world known as the Grid. Both the original and the sequel starred Jeff Bridges and Bruce Boxleitner, though neither actor is yet confirmed for this next movie. Tron: Legacy revealed that Jeff Bridges's character, computer programmer Kevin Flynn, had a son named Sam, played by Garrett Hedlund.
Sam jumps into the Grid to search for his long lost father. While there, he meets Olivia Wilde's character Quorra, an algorithm made flesh who escapes the world of the Grid at the end of Tron: Legacy and enters our reality. »
Chatter surrounding the forthcoming sci-fi sequel Tron 3 has exploded in recent weeks, following an innocent slip in a local Vancouver paper alerting residents to the movie’s production. However, the existence of a third Tron sequel wasn’t entirely unknown prior to that announcement. In 2011, voice star Bruce Boxleitner confidently assured fans that a follow-up to that year’s Tron: Legacy was definitely on the cards, and director Joseph Kosinski’s prep on the sequel was so far along in 2013 that he went on the record comparing it to The Empire Strikes Back. To sum up the evidence, it’s been a long time coming, but Tron 3 is on the way.
And, if you needed even further confirmation on that, a new report from The Hollywood Reporter has two returning stars locked in. Olivia Wilde, who played Quorra in Legacy, and Garrett Hedlund, who tackled the part of Jeff Bridges son Sam Flynn, »

Back in March, reports surfaced that Tron 3, the sequel to 2010's anticipated Tron: Legacy, was gearing up to start shooting this fall in Vancouver. Shortly thereafter it was confirmed that star Garrett Hedlund and director Joseph Kosinski were going to be back for the sequel, which has been rumored to be title Tron: Ascension. Now word comes from THR that Olivia Wilde will be reprising her role as Quorra, an algorithm turned sentient human who left the grid with Sam (Hedlund), son of Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges), at the conclusions of Legacy. However, we still don't know what the sequel will focus on this time. Read on! Also unknown is whether or not Jeff Bridges or the title program himself, played by Bruce Boxleitner, will be back for this sequel. However, perhaps the most important element of this film's cool factor, beyond the breathtaking visuals, would be the return »
