Actor Bruce Boxleitner talks sequel . . .

Despite there being no official green light from Disney, actor Bruce Boxleitner (who played Tron and Alan Bradley) had the following to say in a recent interview about Tron 3:

 “It’s in the works. Anything could happen, but all I can say is, it’s in its formative stages. [Joseph] Kosinski, who is slated for it, he’s shooting another movie now, and then they’ll get around to doing that. I think somewhere around 2014, maybe. I’m talking way out of school here, but they can’t shoot me because I’m Tron!”

Tron: Legacy made $400,062,763 worldwide despite the original 1982 movie being a flop in its own time (it gained cult status on home video).  So perhaps it isn’t too far-fetched that Disney might go for a third Tron movie.  Then again, maybe they’re punch weary after the dismal box performance of John Carter and Mars Needs Moms before that when it comes to big-budget special effects blockbusters.

One thing is sure though: a new Tron movie definitely won’t be set on Mars . . .

(Incidentally Tron: Legacy director Kosinski is working on an as-yet-untitled science fiction project based on his Oblivion graphic novel with Tom Cruise right now.)
