Olivia Wilde Likely To Make Out with Someone in Tr2n


The Fox Network’s resident bisexual, Olivia Wilde (“House,” “The OC”) has joined Disney’s sequel to the 1982 original Tron. Variety reports Wilde will be co-starring alongside Jeff Bridges, who should probably get back into the weight room if he’s going to be participating in a futuristic gladiator tournament (he was chubby and bald in Iron Man–still badass–but LARGE ass, nonetheless).

The plot to the sequel, titled Tr2n, has not been released, but the movie is not expected to be in theaters until 2011 so there’s no rush for a plot. Karl Urban and John Hurt are also rumored to be a part of the cast. The film is being directed by Joseph Kosinski who is also working on a Logan’s Run remake for 2010. Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis (two contributing writers for “Lost”) are working the screenplay with original Tron scribe Steven Lisberger. Jeff Bridges was involved in the original Tron and is returning for the sequel.

I know that since it’s Disney it’ll be a heavily CGI-ed affair, but I’d like to urge Kosinski to keep that pale faced, blacklight quality to the character’s costumes. The cheesy special effects in Tron is what made it so fun to watch, and even though we’ve progressed lightyears since, it’s important to keep a cohesive quality, especially since they’re billing this as a sequel, not a remake. Hopefully they’ll try to make the story and effects work together and not just make a sloppy mish-mash on screen, like we saw this year with Speed Racer.

Again, Tr2n (also known as plainly Tron 2) is due out in theaters 2011.
