Cameron Monaghan, known for his dual Joker-esque roles in Gotham, has joined Jared Leto in the cast of Tron: Ares.
The cast of Disney’s third Tron movie, titled Tron: Ares, is quickly filling out. Leto is playing the lead role. Also starring are Evan Peters, Greta Lee and Jodie Turner-Smith.
Cameron Monaghan has recently joined the cast. He’s known both for his roles in DC television series Gotham and for being the motion capture actor for Cal Kestis, the main character of EA’s recent Star Wars games – Jedi: Fallen Order and Jedi: Survivor.
Yellowjackets’ Sarah Desjardins has also signed on to the film.
We don’t have any details of what kind of character Monaghan will be playing in Tron: Ares, but we know the plot revolves around Leto’s titular character, called Ares, as he journeys from the digital world to the human world.
Joachim Rønning is directing the movie, and it’s not his first foray into making films for Disney. He helmed Pirates Of The Carribean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and Maleficent: Mistress Of Evil.
Production was due to start on the film next month, but with SAG-AFTRA gearing up for a potential strike it’s unclear how those plans will be affected.
More on this as we hear it.
