There was a very long wait for the fans who were old enough to have enjoyed the original TRON movie on the big screen. That groundbreaking 1982 hit, starring Jeff Bridges, had to wait an incredible 28 years before it finally received its highly anticipated sequel.
However, such was the success of TRON: Legacy at the box office that TRON 3 is likely to happen and Joseph Kosinski, the director of TRON: Legacy, has hinted at what could happen in the sequel. It is believed that the third instalment will continue where TRON: Legacy left off, with Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund) and Quorra (Olivia Wilde) in the real world.
However, Kosinski has revealed that we could see some other familiar faces. He explained, “Dillinger [David Warner] was a really important part of the first [TRON] and felt like an easy way to continue that storyline and thread to have his son (Cillian Murphy) in [TRON: Legacy].”
He added, “That way you have people ask those questions of what the Dillinger legacy is in the world of TRON. We didn’t want to ignore it completely and it leaves a really nice springboard for some intertwining development for the next film.” TRON 3 is expected to be released in 2014.
