Just last week Jesse Wigutow was hired to pump out a new script for Tron 3, and today we've learned that Garrett Hedlund is set to reprise his role as Sam Flynn in the film. NextMovie caught up with the actor and asked him if he was coming back, his reply...
Yeah, Are we gonna break this now? Disney's very excited. That's about that. You know, yeah, I'm very excited, Disney's very excited.
Hell, I'm very excited as well! Regardless of the weak script, I really enjoyed Tron: Legacy. It was just such a wild ride. I'm happy that Joseph Kosinski will be back to direct it as well. He brought such an incredibly cool visible style to that world that I absolutely loved. This time around maybe they'll shoot it in 48fps, if any film deserves to be shot in a higher frame rate it is Tron. It's more suited for a film like this than it is a fantasy film like The Hobbit.
Hopefully Wigutow can pump out a solid script for this sequel. He previously wrote the fantasy film Eragon though, which doesn't spark a lot of confidence. But, he also wrote Disney's Peter and the Starcatchers, which the studio is obviously happy with otherwise they wouldn't have hired him, so I remain hopeful.
