Exciting news from Disney, and for once it has nothing to do with a Pixar movie. The long rumored sequel to Tron is go. DH says Disney has Tron 2 slated for a Spring 2011 release, which means work should begin in earnest on it soon.
It’s not yet known whether any of the original cast will return, though Jeff Bridges as recently as December confirmed that there was a part for him in it, and that he was reading the script, examining the project, and trying to decide whether or not he’d be in it. It was Bridges who first understood the potential in Tron and it was his name that got most of the rest of the cast involved. If he signs up and gives Tron 2 his seal of approval, then there’s every reason to think this thing might actually be good. If not… be afraid.
