It’s been just shy of seven years now since TRON: Legacy arrived in cinemas. It did good business, but it was such an expensive film to make, that Disney dithered over making a third movie. Still, it didn’t completely pull the plug until relatively recently, in the aftermath of filling its slate with Star Wars and Marvel movies.
However, there was talk earlier in the year that a new TRON film may still be viable, with Jared Leto linked with playing the lead in the new project. And according to Leto, there’s still a flicker of hope that that’s the case.
Chatting to Collider, he confesses his love of TRON, saying “it was a huge movie for me as well and I do think there’s so much potential in that world, there’s so much left to be said”.
He also said that he’d be keen to help bring a new TRON film to life in any way possible, adding that “it’s something that we’re in discussions about and very much looking forward to bringing to reality. It’s very early days though”.
“It’s alive”, he confirmed. But it’s going to take some time yet to get going.
We’ll keep you posted…
