Is “Tron 3” going to happen? From what I’m reading, it sounds optimistic.
Well, I would say we are writing. We have an idea we’ve been formulating for a few years now. We are very close to being finished with the first draft of the script. The writer, Jesse Wigutow, is working on it as we speak. And I’m excited about the overall idea, but it’s very early. I wouldn’t say that it’s absolutely going to happen, but I would say that the idea we have is the right one to go back to that world. And it would be fun to go back as long as we have the right version.
Tron is the title character, but he’s never a main part of either “Tron” movie. Selfishly, I want more of Tron himself.
I’ve heard people say that! Yeah, there’s an affinity for this character. And, yeah, he’s the title character, but he’s always been more of a secondary — even in the first “Tron.” It’s the story of Kevin Flynn, really. And then, in our case, it was him and his son. But, yeah, Tron is a character. But, for me, when people talk about “Tron,” they’re really talking about the world, I think. Like, when people talk about “Tron,” they’re not talking about that specific character. It is a world. It is an aesthetic. That being said, it would be hard to imagine how we could make another one without at least addressing the character of Tron.
But for those who grew up on “Scarecrow and Mrs. King,” those people might be talking about Tron himself.
That’s absolutely true. And Bruce Boxleitner is a great guy, I loved working with him and he will always be Tron to me.
Hopefully Tron won’t have to wear the helmet the whole movie next time.
It will be like the KISS album, we’ll call it “Tron: Unmasked.
I am going to write this guy a letter explaining all this in drawings because he’s just not getting it.
