Tron was released in 1982 on a $17 million budget and almost doubled its return in box offices receipts. Tron: Legacy came out 28-years later to lack luster reviews and box office return in 2010. If this trend continues, we will see Tron 3 in 23 years. UGH!
The star of Tron: Legacy Garrett Hedlund was out promoting his latest film Pan, he plays pre-captain Hook with two hands. While talking with comicbook.com Hedlund talked about the future of Tron and the chances that fans will see Tron 3 anytime soon.
“I haven’t been told it’s totally dead. Ever since we did Legacy, we knew that to have another story follow it up, it had to be concrete and exciting. Disney needed to have the right story to go forward. I think it was going to introduce some things that were as exciting as Legacy was and then some, though,” said Hedlund.
“Who knows, maybe it’ll be like Legacy was to the first Tron, it’ll be 30 years, and I’ll have my young Flynn CGI face, who knows? But they could do it anytime from now, and I would of course jump back in. Something like that could be quite fun, though,” said Hedlund.
