Hot Rumor: 'Tron 3' Will Start Filming This Fall With Garrett Hedlund
Dust off your LED suit and get ready to go back to the Grid, because the word on the street is that "Tron 3" is filming this fall.
According to Vancouver's VancityBuzz blog, "Tron 3" will begin filming on October 5, 2015, with Garrett Hedlund attached to reprise his role as Sam Flynn. Badass Digest got confirmation from a trusted source in the industry that the movie is a go, with "TRON: Legacy" director Joseph Kosinski returning as well. During an interview for "Oblivion" in 2012, Kosinski said, "I've said it would have to be our 'Empire Strikes Back' for me to come back and for me to pull the whole team back together. I think we do have that idea. We do have the idea that feels big and really blows the doors off this franchise."
It makes sense that Kosinski would return for another run, but Hedlund's run of dramatic roles in a range of films from "On the Road" to "Unbroken" is serving his career really well. He's got the William Monahan thriller "Mojave" coming out in April, Joe Wright's "Pan" in July, and he just signed on for Ang Lee's "Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk," although it's unclear when that will begin filming. Perhaps the lure of the Grid is all too real.
