Nothing too earth shattering here, but interesting all the same.
We've known for a while know that a third TRON film was in the works, given the reasonable success of TRON LEGACY and the presumed success of Disney XD's forthcoming TRON UPRISING cartoon show.
Nonetheless, it's been a while since we've heard anything about this new picture's status. So AICN reader Chris caught up with Bruce Boxleitner (Tron/Alan Bradley in the first two films) at the recent D23 and asked him about it.
Here's what Bruce had to say:
SPOILER RE: TRON LEGACY:
Hopefully we'll get to see some Tron the next time around. I "get" the concept of not seeing him too much in the recent movie, especially given the film's "LEGACY" subtitle, but I think it was a complete cop-out to only hear his voice and never to show his face once we learned the character was still around. A few minutes of ass-kicking (obvious) Tron wouldn't have hurt anything, and would've only served to elevate the picture's Geek factor.
