The next TRON film will shoot in Canada a month earlier than originally planned, it is being reported.
One project that seems to have beaten the onset of the writers’ strike is the third film in the TRON series. After a decade of false dawns and stalled starts, it seems everything is finally in place, including a production date according to Collider which spotted the project’s appearance on the Film and Television Industry Alliance’s production list.
It looks like the film is set to begin shooting in July in Vancouver, Canada. We don’t know exactly what the movie will be about, or if it will even be connected to 2010’s TRON: Legacy, a flawed but underrated sequel to 1982’s TRON. We do know that the current title appears to be TRON: Ares and that Jared Leto is set to star.
The gap between Legacy and TRON: Ares will likely be around 15 years when the third film releases, still substantially less than the 28 year hiatus between the original TRON and its eventual sequel. Still, we wonder if Disney might have waited too long to pull the trigger on this one and given the internet’s general trolling of Morbius, the last big budget film that was marketed on Jared Leto’s shoulders, whether the company has made the right creative choices here.
By dithering for years, Disney has lost the undeniable positive of retaining TRON: Legacy director Jospeh Kosinski through its indecision, not to mention losing the talents of Daft Punk, composers of Legacy’s incredible score. Joachim Rønning is in to helm the film and time will tell if the third entry in the TRON can live up to its predecessors.
