THEY SAY

Sean Flynn, the tech-savvy 27-year-old son of Kevin Flynn, looks into his father's disappearance and finds himself pulled into the same world of fierce programs and gladiatorial games where his father has been living for 25 years. Along with Kevin's loyal confidant, father and son embark on a life-and-death journey across a visually-stunning cyber universe that has become far more advanced and exceedingly dangerous.

WE SAY

Tron Legacy, as Tron 2 is now title is set for a 2010 release date - 28 years after the first film!

Released in 1981 the original Tron boasted some ground-breaking special effects involving gladiatorial battles featuring, amongst others, motorbikes set “inside” a computer making it probably the first virtual reality movie ever. However the film cost a fortune to make and bombed at the box office. In the interim it has however grown in cult status, particularly amongst ageing thirtysomethingers who were impressed with it as kids.

The plot involved a hacker (Bridges) who is “swallowed” into a virtual reality world and has to battle a rogue computer entity with the help of another entity. Incidentally Jeff Bridges was seen most recently as the bad guy in Iron Man and Bruce Boxleitner went on to play Sheridan in the epic Babylon 5 TV series.

The film is being pushed as a “sequel” and not a remake, which will make it one of the most belated sequels in Hollywood history . . .  (The winner by all counts is Return to Oz, made 46 years after the original Wizard of Oz! Still, that one didn't star the same actors. If you can think of an even more belated sequel – one made a much longer time after the original starring the same actors – then let me know at scifimoviepage@yahoo.com.)

Tron Legacy will be filmed using stop-motion capture and will be directed by commercials director Joseph Kosinski who is currently also set to helm the Black Hole remake . . .
