After sitting in stasis for years, TRON 3 is moving forward at full speed. Joseph Kosinski is returning to direct, and we reported a couple weeks ago that the film was planning to shoot in Vancouver starting in October.
THR is now reporting that TRON Legacy stars Garrett Hedlund and Olivia Wilde are returning to play Sam Flynn and Quorra respectively. For those who don’t remember (and I completely understand if that’s the case), Sam is the son of Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges) and Quorra was an ISO, a naturally occurring algorithm from inside the Grid. At the end of the film, Sam and Quorra leave the grid, and the film reaches its most interesting moment, which is that something from the Grid can enter our world.
We’re hearing that the plot will involve more entities leaving the Grid and coming into the real world, and that’s where the “Ascension” part of the rumored title comes from. They are “ascending” into our plane of existence where they will discover that our bikes are less shiny, our clothes aren’t skin tight, and information is not stored on Frisbees.
