HOPE OF A SEQUEL
While the world is down and about in shambles, Hollywood sparks us with a ray of hope that will surely brighten up your day. For all the sci-fi film lovers, Tron: Legacy director, Joseph Kosinski has revealed in an interview that he is hopeful and optimistic that a third movie in the series will be made.
The first part of the franchise, Tron came out in 1982 and was directed by Steven Lisberger. Almost three decades later, in 2010, Joseph Kosinski directed the box office blockbuster Tron: Legacy and since then fans have been eagerly waiting for the third instalment of the hit franchise, which is likely to hit the box office soon.
During a recent interview, Joseph said, ''There's always been an interest since 'Legacy' (for a sequel). There have always been talks and murmuring of doing another and continuing the story.”
He further continued, “I still think it's a nice jewel in the crown for Disney IP and I feel there are fans and people petitioning and pushing to continue it inside the halls of Disney. So I think it could happen. I think there are enough ideas in the franchise, and the fact that it is so unique and nothing else looks or sounds like it. There is, I think, a future for the franchise and I hope they keep making them.''
Tron: Legacy saw Jeff Bridges reprising his role of Kevin Flynn, while Garrett Hedlund played the lead and Jeff’s son, Samuel "Sam" Flynn in the film. The film also starred Olivia Wilde, Bruce Boxleitner, Michael Sheen and James Frain in important roles.
Although much isn’t revealed about the storyline, cast or when the film will come to fruition, we are just glad that the makers of the film are finally willing to push the envelope!
