Tron Legacy

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Disney wants to push ahead with its sequel to Tron: Legacy and has hired screenwriter Jesse Wigutow (who worked on the forthcoming Crow remake and an adaptation of “Peter and the Starcatchers”) to create another draft of the script. There’s no word yet on what the plot might look like, or how much of David DiGilio’s first draft will be kept, but the last installment ended with Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund) giving control of ENCOM to Alan (Bruce Boxleitner) before hopping on a motorcycle with former program Quorra (Olivia Wilde) and riding off into the sunrise.

There’s a way to criticize the film for underperforming financially (at $400m worldwide), but the real criticism is that the second film in the franchise was all filler and no killer. Was it beautiful? Absolutely. Stunning. And it had a solid soundtrack.

But those elements alone don’t make for a worthy two-hour ride, and that kind of hollow disappointment is most likely why it didn’t get the kind of word of mouth that gigantic films absolutely, without question have to have in order to break records and return money. It didn’t connect with audiences outside of becoming a new club mix. Hopefully this is the lesson the studio took away and will, with Wigutow, be instilling in the story for Tron 3.
