Last year, Tron: Legacy star Garrett Hedlund told Comicbook.com that there was some hope for Tron 3, and that he hadn't "been told it’s totally dead." The actor had even had some story discussions, and said of what he'd read, "I think it was going to introduce some things that were as exciting as Legacy was and then some, though." While the film has been basically dead since the middle of last year, producer Brigham Taylor is now echoing the idea that there could still be hope.
"I'm always hoping for that," Taylor told Screenrant about a possible Tron revival. "I just had a wonderful visit to Shanghai, where they have an amazing attraction based on Tron Legacy. The designers just did such an amazing job creating the feeling of stepping onto The Grid, and that indelible visual world that Lisberger created and Kosinski explored… and I think there’s a real stickiness to that that I hope can grow into a film or whatever else."
That new ride is the centerpiece of Shanghai Disneyland's version of Tomorrowland, where parkgoers can ride on a Tron lightcycle through an exciting indoor and outdoor track that races directly above the crowds. Of course, Taylor also hedged his bets and remained cautious about giving too much fuel to Tron fans' excitement.
"So I don’t know what I’d 'hint' at other than that I hope for that, and that there’s obviously been conversations," he said.
During our chat with Hedlund, he joked, "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 he did say that "they could do it anytime from now, and I would of course jump back in," so if Taylor is able to get it going, he has one star ready to rock.
