Here's Jeff "The Dude" Bridges, fresh off his Oscar nominated role in Crazy Heart, and now appearing as a white-robed, disc-wearing Flynn (we assume?) in a new image from Disney's upcoming Tron: Legacy. It's obviously meant to be the same stark, white set that we saw in the concept footage from Comic-Con two years ago, but what's up with that disc on his back? And boy, what would 1982's Flynn say about all that hair? He'd probably call him a corporate old-dude and steal his password.
We received absolutely no details with this new image. Is he a prisoner? Is he in self-imposed exile? Is he running the show from upstairs? Is he just visiting Magneto in his plastic prison from X2: X-Men United? Whatever the case, it has us on pins and needles for the movie, which will probably be the one of the most anticipated sequels with a 28-year gap between installments ever. Tron: Legacy hits theaters on December 10th, 2010.
For those who aren't as familiar with the original, is this film on your radar? Do you think the gaming technology will connect with the younger generations regardless of whether they know or watched or heard about the original film. Curious to hear what you all think ...
