This is barely a story as Tron 3 hasn't even been official greenlit by Disney, but, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Joseph Kosinski is officially attached to direct Tron 3, the follow-up to his own sequel, Tron: Legacy.
The studio is apparently eyeing Fall 2015 production date in Vancouver.
But what does this actually mean? Being attached to a project does not mean a contract has been signed by either party. Kosinski has likely been approached and confirmed interest in directing the next film if the right pe [Continued ...] »
Disney has brought Kosinski back into the fold for the science fiction sequel, which is rumoured to be shooting in Vancouver later this year.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the studio is yet to give Tron 3 the official green light.
Kosinski has previously said that the sequel will centre on Sam and Wilde's character Quorra outside the Grid.
"I think we will pick [up] with where Tron: Legacy left off with Quorra in the real world and what does that mean and the possibilities it opens up for the next chapter," he said.
"It's the relationship between the two of them that's the next step. »
Yesterday, it was widely reported that Tron 3 was moving forward, with shooting set to begin in Vancouver this fall. Now it is being confirmed that Tron: Legacy director Joseph Kosinski will also helm this follow-up. At this time, Garrett Hedlund, who played Sam Flynn, son of Jeff Bridges's Kevin Flynn, is the only actor said to be returning.
While it is now confirmed that Tron 3 will start shooting sometime in October, Disney has not yet officially green lit the second sequel to the 1982 cult hit Tron. It is said that studio operators in Vancouver are competing to land the production. No booking has been confirmed. Vancouver will also host another sci-fi tentpole sequel this year, with Star Trek 3 shooting sometime this spring.
After Tron Legacy, the long-awaited sequel to the 1982 classic Tron, debuted during the Christmas season in 2010, rumours have circulated that a third (and perhaps final) film would make its way to the big screen, with Legacy director Joseph Kosinski (Oblivion) continuously attached to the threequel without any concreate news or official confirmation from Disney, the franchise owners.
Well, yesterday Vancouver-based website VanCity Buzz reported that Tron 3 is going ahead, and that is it gearing up for a shoot this October in the city. Furthermore, both Koskinski and his Legacy star Garrett Hedlund are set to return, with Hedlund reprising his role as Sam Flynn, the son of Tron creator Kevin, played by Oscar winner Jeff Bridges in both films. There’s no word on whether Bridges will return in some form, or Olivia Wilde, who co-starred in Legacy as Quorra.
While never a massive box-office success, the original Tron »

Don’t ever say that Disney doesn’t like getting more green.
It seems like the House of Mouse will actually be moving forward with a sequel to 2010’s Tron Legacy, according to a report by Badass Digest on Tuesday. The film starred Garrett Hedlund, Olivia Wilde, and Jeff Bridges and was a continuation of the original Tron from 1982.
The original report came from Vancity Buzz out of Vancouver, which reported that Tron 3 would be filming in Vancouver this fall with Hedlund set to return. Badass Digest has since also confirmed that the movie is happening and that director Joseph Kosinski will be coming back also.
The question that many are posing with this movie is why Disney would want to move forward with it even though the other film didn’t make as much money. Tron: Legacy barely brought back its budget and the film wasn’t a »

Just yesterday, sources revealed that Tron 3 would begin production in Vancouver later this year. While not quite official confirmation from Disney, it was good enough for fans to get excited for the further adventures of the franchise. Now, sources are confirming that not only is Tron 3 in development but they go on to say that Tron: Legacy director Joseph Kosinski will return. The Wrap did not go as far as to confirm that filming will begin in October of this year, but it seems like the »

For a long time it seemed as though any chance of Tron: Legacy getting a sequel was non-existent. But according to a new report, that's not the case, and after some very quiet development, Disney is ready to shoot this Fall with the director returning. Come inside for a little more information!
Well this is interesting. According to some reports out of Vancouver, Joseph Kosinski (Tron: Legacy and Oblivion) is gearing up to film Tron 3 at that location this Fall...just a few months from now. What's crazy, is that from just about all we've heard until this point, was that Tron 3 was virtually dead, as Legacy had failed to perform as expected in the box office. While rumblings of a third Tron movie has popped up over the years since (including a writer being hired back in 2011 for it), nothing ever seem to come of it.

When Tron Legacy opened way back in 2010, it was wasn't met with the enthusiasm Disney were expecting from the sequel to the 1982 cult classic. It wasn't a terrible movie by nay stretch of the imagination, but its lacklustre box office performance definitely hurt plans director Joseph Kosinski had for a sequel, one that was hinted at heavily at the movie and the Flynn Lives short film found on the Blu-Ray. Tron 3 seemed to be on track in 2013 when Kosinski revealed to us in an interview that he was working on a script that would deliver on the promise of the end of Tron Legacy, but any news of the project seemed to dry up, and I think everyone just assumed that a second sequel to Tron was dead. Well, maybe not as dead as we thought, with a surprising announcement from news site VanCity Buzz that Disney has indeed »

Dust off your Led suit and get ready to go back to the Grid, because the word on the street is that "Tron 3" is filming this fall.
According to Vancouver's VancityBuzz blog, "Tron 3" will begin filming on October 5, 2015, with Garrett Hedlund attached to reprise his role as Sam Flynn. Badass Digest got confirmation from a trusted source in the industry that the movie is a go, with "Tron: Legacy" director Joseph Kosinski returning as well. During an interview for "Oblivion" in 2012, Kosinski said, "I've said it would have to be our 'Empire Strikes Back' for me to come back and for me to pull the whole team back together. I think we do have that idea. We do have the idea that feels big and really blows the doors off this franchise."
It makes sense that Kosinski would return for another run, but Hedlund's run of dramatic roles »

Tron 3 is reportedly set to begin filming this autumn.
According to Vancity Buzz, the follow-up to 2010's Tron: Legacy will shoot in Vancouver, Canada beginning October 5.
So far, only Garrett Hedlund has been confirmed to return to the cast as lead character Sam Flynn.
"I think we will pick [up] with where Tron Legacy left off with Quorra in the real world and what does that mean and the possibilities it opens up for the next chapter. It's the relationship between the two of them that's the next step," Kosinski said.

Since the release of Tron: Legacy back in 2010, there have been continual rumours and reports of a Tron 3. Director Joseph Kosinski - who's since made Oblivion, starring Tom Cruise - has continually declared his interest in making another Tron adventure, whilst Garrett Hedlund and Olivia Wilde would be expected to pick up where the last film left off.
Appreciating that Tron films are hardly cheap to make, the project seemed to have stalled at Disney. But a fresh report now suggests that Tron 3 will be filming in Vancouver, with production starting on October 5th.
Furthermore, the report - which appeared in Van City Buzz - says that Garrett Hedlund will indeed be back, reprising the role of Sam Flynn in the movie.
Disney hasn't confirmed the story, »
While the box office return on "Tron: Legacy" wasn't stellar — $400 million on a $170 million budget — it was enough to encourage Disney to keep the franchise going. In 2012, Jesse Wigutow ("It Runs In The Family," "The Crow" reboot) was hired to write the script, and Joseph Kosinski was attached to direct. And before the year was out, Garrett Hedlund himself confirmed he would be returning for the followup. And that was the last anyone heard for a couple of years, but it would appear things are ramping up. Local outlet Vancity Buzz is reporting that "Tron 3" will start shooting in Vancouver starting on October 5th, with Kosinski directing and Hedlund as the only confirmed cast member returning (for now). The green light has apparently already been given to the movie, and it hasn't taken long for more chatter to surface. Badass Digest has a source that also confirms the sequel »

Back in December 2012, two years after Tron: Legacy hit theaters, Garrett Hedlund confirmed that he will return to play Sam Flynn in Disney's Tron 3, but we haven't heard much about the sequel since then. Today, VanCity Buzz reports that production is scheduled to begin on October 5, with Garrett Hedlund currently the only confirmed star at this time. Sources from Badass Digest and /Film confirm the report, while adding that Joseph Kosinski is coming back to direct.
Joseph Kosinski revealed back in October 2013 that the script was still being written by Jesse Wigutow (The Crow reboot), who rewrote the original script by David Digilio (Eight Below). While the director insisted at the time that the project was still moving forward, this is the first we've heard about production getting under way this year. It remains to be seen if Jeff Bridges (Kevin Flynn), Olivia Wilde (Quorra) or Bruce Boxleitner (Alan Bradley »
It's been quite a long time since we last heard anything about Tron 3, the last piece of news dating back to 2012, but the project may be further along than we have been led to believe. That's because new reports are circulating saying that the sci-fi sequel is looking to start production this fall. This story comes to us from the Vancover-centric website Vancity Buzz, which claims that Tron 3 will be heading to the Canadian city before the end of the year. According to their source, Walt Disney Pictures has given the greenlight to the sequel, and have set the production to begin on October 5th. The details pretty much end there, as the article doesn't mention any filmmakers being attached to the project or any kind of confirmation from the studio. When we last heard about the next chapter in the Tron franchise, it was December of 2012 and »
Five years have passed since sci-fi sequel Tron: Legacy debuted in theaters, which means that now’s the perfect time to start production on its follow-up, right? Disney’s second jaunt into the Grid might have failed to ignite a positive response from critics or audiences, but that’s not going to stop the studio from pushing forward on a third entry in the Tron canon.
The news today hails from a non-movie-related source – local Canadian outlet VanCity Buzz. The outlet bagged the scoop from insiders, who leaked knowledge concerning the movie’s shoot. Tron 3 is expected to commence principal photography in Vancouver, B.C. this fall on October 5th. Whether or not either of this tidbit contains a scrap of truth is unknown, But, it’s worth bearing in mind that this info stems from a city-centric mag and not a movie blog.
That’s not all, either, »

Tron 3 seems to be happening, after a very quiet period of development from Disney. According to reports out of Vancouver, the film will shoot there starting in October, with Garrett Hedlund set to return to the role he played in Tron: Legacy. What’s more, we’re told that Joseph Kosinski is returning to direct. This […]

Joseph Kosinski has entered into early negotiations to direct Gran Turismo for Sony Pictures. The news comes almost a year and a half after the project was first announced back in June 2013, when Mike De Luca and Dana Brunetti (Fifty Shades of Grey) signed on to produce. The Hollywood Reporter's sources reveal that Joseph Kosinski is developing a new script with Sony
Alex Tse (Watchmen) wrote an early draft of the Gran Turismo screenplay. Back in 2013, when Alex Tse was writing the script, Kazunori Yamauchi, the lead designer on the Gran Turismo video games, said the movie plot will follow a video game player who turns into a racer. However, since Sony and Joseph Kosinski are working on a new script, it seems unlikely this plot element will be kept in place.
We started this website back in 2007, and since then, the names of some sequels seem to come up with reasonable regularity, albeit with no sign of the film itself. And in the time we've been going, yet more names have added themselves to the list of follow-ups that are seemingly stuck in development hell.
With the new Ghostbusters film set to escape and become a real thing in the next year or two, here's just a sample of the other projects struggling to get off the ground (with one or two edging closer to a greenlight than others...)
