Actor and Thirty Seconds To Mars frontman Jared Leto says he's still in talks to do Tron 3, the sequel to 2010's Tron: Legacy that was previously reported as canceled by Disney. (So far, there's been no comment from Tron Guy!)
Uncertainty has followed a third Tron installment since Disney canned the film back in 2015. After Tron: Legacy updated the science fiction franchise established by the original 1982 Tron, another sequel was reportedly in the works—with Leto tabbed as the lead—before lingering in development hell and subsequently getting the ol' Hollywood ax. However, the Blade Runner 2049 actor now claims that Tron 3 back in the (very early) works.
“It's something that we're in discussions about and very much looking forward to bringing to reality,” Leto recently told Collider about a future Tron movie.
“It's very early days, though,” the actor admits of any Tron 3 development, before praising the cinematic universe. “It was a huge movie for me, as well, and I do think there's so much potential in that world, there's so much left to be said. I'm absolutely game to try to help in any way that I can bring that to life.”
According to NME, Tron: Legacy director Joseph Kosinski (who may or may not direct the new film) says, “Tron 3 is in cryogenic freeze. So, it's there. It's not dead. It's alive, but it's sitting there, waiting for the right time to move forward.”
