Writer announced on muthereffin' TRON 3 YO!

Hey folks, Harry here and Hollywood Reporter has made my night.  Not only did the lovely Borys Kit just get off the phone with me, yeah, we're sweet on each other.  It goes back years.   Love his sis.   Meanwhile as he was talking to me, he was launching this juicy tale of geek euphoria.

Now, we here at AICN have known for quite some time that work was progressing on TRON 3.  Bruce Boxleitner had said so.   And when TRON says it will happen, we listen!

The Screenwriter is Jesse Wigutow.  Now that's not the greatest news to me.   He wrote on ERAGON - without credit which was one of the most exceptionally flaccid fantasy films to ever punish filmgoers.  Since then he's been at work on a host of things that we've yet to see. The most interesting is PETER AND THE STARCATCHERS for Gary Ross.  He's also written a script for the remake of THE CROW, which is being directed by F. Javier Gutierrez, who directed that amazing little indie for IFC, BEFORE THE FALL, which you should absolutely look out for.  As for TRON 3, I'm hoping for the best...   But I'm more enthused to see that Joseph Kosinski is officially back.   Now announce DAFT PUNK's return.      

Yes, TRON 3!   BNAT weeks always rule with movie news.   What next?

    Tron Legacy took too much flack...

    by captr53

    Just a great and solid film as a follow up to an original that was somewhat underwhelming. Any Sci-fi movie that the Mrs. will request to watch is thumbs up in my book.

  • Dense. Silly. Messianic. T2 was the supermodel of Sci-Fi films: beautiful body, no brain.

    I can't understand the love for Daft Punk's score.

    by Greggers

    One of the things the original TRON had going for it was Wendy Carlos' bizarre-as-fuck avant guarde score. Haven't heard anything like it short of a Scott Walker album; really did sound like music from another plane of reality. Daft Punk sounded like Hans Zimmer, a form of music all too common on THIS plane of reality.

  • Dec. 5, 2012, 9:38 p.m. CST

    Glad to hear TRON 3 is still underway...

    by bubcus

    Bit taken aback about the writing though... According to IMDB, his four credited titles are 2006 - The Prince (TV movie) 2003 - It Runs in the Family (written by) 2002 - Sweet Friggin' Daisies (short) 1999 - Ugly Naked People (short) I presume he has written way more than this because back when I was trying to get into screenwriting, it was said you might get one out of every ten scripts sold or produced. If Disney is going to hire this guy to take on a high financed film, I'll trust that this guy is in fact a great writer but that much of his work is still in development limbo... which is normal in this industry. Anyway, looking forward to the next film and crossing my fingers that it will be amazing.

  • Get real people. I appreciate the first films place in geekdom, but neither are good films in the least. Legacy in particular was complete shit.

    Why? Dear God...WHY???

    by Linguo_IS_Dead

    Is TRON so beloved a franchise that it needs to continue? They'd be better off just rebooting it as a kid's Saturday morning cartoon, then hoping it can gain popularity from there. This current arc is a waste.

  • Dec. 5, 2012, 10:15 p.m. CST

    loved tron 2

    by HerbSewell

    Tron 2 was awesome, saw it IMAX 3d and there is no other way to watch it. It had a Wizard of Oz vibe when he went from the real world to the computer world (and they catch him on the street), with Daft Punk's music kicking in, that 15 minutes was some of the best fantasy ever caught on film.

  • Dec. 5, 2012, 10:16 p.m. CST

    a writer?

    by Randin Graves

    Seems like they didn't bother with one of those on the last one.

  • Dec. 5, 2012, 10:19 p.m. CST

    Harry, have you actually read Wigutow's work?

    by Green

    It's one thing to pass judgment if you have. But if you haven't, then you are being incredibly irresponsible. Folks in the movie business read your blog. They listen to your opinions. Slamming a writer publicly has reverberations. If you want to gauge a screenwriter's talent, look at his/her scripts before they were tinkered with by the studio and other other writers.

    by GeorgieBoy

    Both TRON and TRON Legacy are misunderstood films. Yeah, they LOOK like nothing but an FX-feast, but dig a bit deeper and you'll see they have real meaning underneath. (I could do with a better actor in the lead though. Hedlund wasn't very good.)

  • Dec. 5, 2012, 10:35 p.m. CST


    by Green

    Wigutow didn't write Eragon; he wrote on it, without credit, which means there could be nothing of his work left in the movie. Don't judge a screenwriter until you've actually read his/her drafts.

  • Dec. 5, 2012, 10:37 p.m. CST

    the only problem with TR2N

    by Noddy93

    was that the kid had a PK Ripper that late in the 80s. and for fucks sake... Daft Punk is so saccharin. let us get music along the lines of Aphex Twin or µ-Ziq... maybe the two can make a sequel album as Mike & Rich for the soundtrack.

  • Keep DAFT PUNK on board, though.

    by Stereotypical Evil Archer

    by Glenn

    So I fell asleep during the middle 100 minutes, seriously. What happened? Cuz I didn't seem to miss much, and the end became what all those sci-fi movies became in the 80s, the big buildup to the lightshow and things collapsing and a big brouhaha that didn't quite make sense and... kinda felt like a big budget version of Watcher in the Woods or something. I was glad to see them bring Bette Davis back to life along with Jeff Bridges.

    Legacy was the best Daft Punk video ever

    by Phategod2

    It was a 1.30+ hour music video. Its the only soundtrack I have from the past 10 years they were robbed for best score. But the movie could have been alot better.

    Looking For More Stop/Start Stop/Start Stop/Start

    by DeckardB26354

    Amazing that they are giving the same hack that directed Legacy the chance to do more damage with the third one. One of the biggest flaws in Legacy was the directing (and plot) which turned the movie into a turgid sequence of exposition scenes. Now we are going to sit down and have a long, needlessly talking scene about exposition that we should just show you. Now we have a little bit of meaningless action.

    Why would you want Daft Punk again? Their score was outstanding, but why

    by Bedknobs and Boomsticks

    wouldn't you want to here a fresh take, rather than more of the same? Think out of the box. My vote, VNV Nation.

  • Dec. 6, 2012, 1:14 a.m. CST

    I would say How to Train Your Dragon was also robbed of best score.

    by Bedknobs and Boomsticks

  • Pretty aweome special effects overall, hot women, and some cool concepts- but weighed down by boring leads, plodding plots, and Attack Of The Clones echoes.

  • There was nothing innovative about it; in fact, it was pretty derivative, not only of their own work, but the work of other (movie) composers. It didn't create a unique sense of atmosphere. Close your eyes and it could have been the soundtrack to a Skinemax-type flick from the 80s. Daft Punk can make interesting music, but I think their work in Tron was pretty boring and not worthy of the love this message board is giving it.

    It's the exact opposite of what any person with the bankroll to make it happen should do - namely giving a kid empty praise about the book he's written and getting it into wide publishing distribution in hopes of it becoming the next big moneymaking franchise.

    from a daft punk superfan...

    by soup74

    tron 2 was misstep. as phategod2 said, legacy was a daft punk video, although it wasnt very good. actually it just wasnt very groundbreaking visually or aurally. (and it kind of needed to be). tron 3 needs no daft punk, and daft punk needs no tron 3.

  • The original Tron had little plot and character either, but I think it had incredible potential for a great film. The game is probably my favorite arcade game ever, and the overall aesthetics of Tron are truly amazing. The trailers, hype and potential of Legacy had my so excited, and the visuals really did end up delivering. Sadly, the story was horrible,the acting was mediocre, and nothing was memorable beyond the visuals and score. Sadly, it was like a beautiful girl who is painfully boring.

    Just in : Q*Bert and Harry Pitfall signed for Tron 3!

    by Gorgomel

  • Basically the idea of a human going into a detailed virtual world and living in there while his real body disappeared from the real world. It might have been better if it had not been tied into the whole Tron universe. Think of all the cool stuff a writer or filmmaker could explore with the idea of a world changing tech like the grid in the Tron films, especially the state of it in Tron Legacy. If such a technology existed, tons of people would choose to leave behind their flesh and enter a world where they can be nearly immortal and god-like. It would cause ripples in social, financial, and tech circles. Then of course the angle of Clu and his followers wanting to exert some control over the real world that exists beyond the grid was interesting. Now, I did enjoy Tron Legacy for what it was, however, I think it had much greater potential. Instead we got a kind of routine father-son Hollywood sci-fi/action flick with cool visuals and a Star Wars homage at the end. Actually, Tron Legacy felt like Star Wars crossed with The Matrix in the setting of the original Tron.

    by C0CKLES

    ... "one of the most exceptionally flaccid fantasy films to ever punish filmgoers" was exactly how I would describe Tron Legacy. I fell asleep 3/4 way through. Not exactly how I expected a movie I'd waited 20 years for to pan out. It made the same chronic mistake every reboot / sequel makes these days; "Let's be dark and edgy". Which in almost every case equals = boring bollocks.

    Loved Tron Legacy...

    by Darkness

    and was surprised by it right from the start. Saw it in IMAX - My first experience with the format. Not being an advocator of all things three dimensional, i was pretty taken with this movie - that to some degree was conflicted with style and substance - but ultimately gave is a good ride...And also good to see that that Jeff Bridges was not so inadvertantly ignorant to a fantasy picture - that, like the original - could have deflated himself as an actor, and that you never want to revisit (Tom Cruise from the underrated "Legend" comes to mind). I think personally Tron has already had it's duration, so a third act might be a struggle. The possibilty of Bridges returning, and the dance inspired tweakings of Daft Punk might be a defunct possibility to some degree.

  • It wasnt a bad movie though, the action sequences were fun and the creepy CG Jeff bridges made an effective villain (mainly because "photo realistic" CG people are very easy to dislike). Having said that, Im not all that excited about a new tron movie .

  • Disney should make a new willow movie ! The first movie was very self contained so they can expand its universe and characters in a sequel without alienating anyone who hasnt seen the first one . Also, sword and scorcery fantasy is still a big draw - the succsess of skyrim, game of thrones and the money that the hobbit will inevitably make , is proof of that . Additionally, warwick davis needs to be in more movies - this mother fucker has more charisma and geek cred than taylor kitch will ever have. Make it happen, disney!

  • ... a non-Tron Daft Punk album, and a Tron Legacy WENDY CARLOS soundtrack, as it was supposed to be.

  • Dec. 6, 2012, 10:43 a.m. CST

    I'm probably in the minority here,

    by el-guappo

    Wendy Carlos is a fucking bitch.

    by Fries Against

  • Hearing that Joseph Kosinski is back directing is a big WIN for the sequel. The guy is a former architect and assistant professor and it shows. His use of colors, sets, visual effects and designs is outstanding. That's why he should be directing a Star Wars film someday soon. If you hate Tron Legacy without admitting it has some breathtaking visuals, art designs and action sequences, you're just a completely full of shit troll. Tron Legacy over Avengers ANY day of the week.

  • I should remind you all that the look of Tron Legacy is a direct copy of the original movie. So they streamlined the designs of the suits a little, but that's not that difficult to do. I actually preferred the original outfits myself. The fact of the matter is that the original film was PIONEERING. Say what you want about the movie but at the least it was breaking all kinds of grounds with that they did. Now fast forward to Tron Legacy, WHAT did they do that was pioneering? The opportunity was there. They could've done an amazing job on the young Jeff Bridges, but instead we got a substandered CG shitfest.

  • Dec. 6, 2012, 12:53 p.m. CST

    Eragon was based on a lame fantasy written by a kid anyway.


    So was anyone surprised the film was shit.

  • People on these boards say the soundtrack sucked, the designs sucked and the movie is "the worst ever" etc etc. But I've learned that talkbackers are the worst group to discuss a movie with. Most are very young kids that come on here just to stir up shit.

    original that was somewhat underwhelming

    by Keith

    If you think the first Tron was underwhelming, you probably do not understand it. In particular, you do not understand its importance as both a narrative and technical milestone. The second is possibly understood reasonably well. The first is not, because Tron was so hugely influential that it can seem unimpressive when judged by the standards of the world it helped create. In short, Tron is the very first depiction of cyberspace. First depiction of an online virtual world. The word 'user' for a computer operator is cemented in popular culture by Tron. It features neat side-alleys of users as gods, and there's a through-line of time dilation that can easily be missed. It's the first cinema story to feature a data weapon as a plot point, i.e. a virus or trojan. It depicts artificial life (albeit anthropomorphically). Tron was so ahead of its time, just like its 1982 contemporary Blade Runner. To repeat, people who are underwhelmed by it probably do not realize just how many new things were in it, because they are so used to the world that was left in its wake.

    I thought it was flawed, and flabby, but had a lot of good things in it. It is first and foremost a visual and auditory spectacle. (I love the soundtrack.) I felt that the Rinzler storyline was bodged, and that there was too much pedestrian exposition rather than exposition built into the fabric of the story. (Is the story explained on the move while other things are happening, or by people sitting down while nothing else is happening? In Legacy, it's mainly the latter.)

    Fuck you, AICN

    by Keith

    What I wrote was: The Light Sailer is one of my favourite cinematic cues of all time. By turns, it suggests mystery, beauty, something coming to life, and triumphant escape.

    I agree with you, the soundtrack by Daft Punk was very inspired and possibly the best thing about the movie. They got the look right but what they didn't do and it's a huge missed opportunity is that they didn't pioneer or break new ground with. Hell even the 3D was SOOOOOO substandered, it's embarrassing..!

    It isn't a good movie when you're glad it is over with

    Tron was flawed...

    by fauns_bass_1

    ...but it was cool... even just visually Legacy just did the same thing as the first, flawed but cool. I love the fact that the new films are not prequels or re-imaginings. What the fuck do people want from this? It's a far fetched fantasy which represents the virtual world, it never made sense.

  • That movie was purely absurd, full of terrible acting. The ONLY thing that movie had going for it was the light cycle scene.

    Daft Punk were channelling Philip Glass

    No, we can not agree. Because what you have said is 100% crap.

    People posting an opinion on the original Tron should qualify it by posting their age. Unless you lived through that era, you probably have little chance of understanding just how groundbreaking Tron compare it with modern movies made in the era that followed Tron (and followed its lead). misterdarcy 38

    Flynn: He’s our Eric Von Stroheim and I adore him.

    by The_Cellarrat

  • so full of mystery in 1982 that you got chills. Nobody knew what computers were truly capable of but they had seen the magic produced by them in the form of games. It was as event picture as it gets. You speak and it's words and sounds. You need to attach understanding to those mouth noises.

  • I'd like to see a sequel where the story shifts to Tron and Alan with little bits of Flynn here and there if Jeff Bridges is up for it. Tron is the Spartacus of the Grid. His name is in the title. He should be the hero and 3 years later with Disney now OWNING ILM I'm pretty sure CGI Boxleitner as Tron will probably be improved over what they did with CLU.

    Tron 3... Is gonna be awesome.

    by Norman Colson

    I loved tron legacy and it gets massive replay on my blu-ray this movie was made for hi-def and surround sound. I just hope the plot is revolutionary and it follows sam flynn and quorra outside and the cillian murphy character. I mean why introduce him as a high ranking programmer if he's not gonna be in this one. I suspect he is and he's gonna find out about the grid and snatches the chip and brings it to the web and chaos ensues. Sam and quorra has to fix it from the inside. And Kevin is not dead...

    My life was on track....

    by harper54

    I had a good job, a wife and a kid with another on the way. I had been working late a lot as I was bucking for a promotion and a raise so I could get that house out in the suburbs my wife and I had always dreamed of. p^ Then, I saw Tron Legacy and everything changed....I almost immedietely starting trolling movie news sites to complain about how awful it was and how it was only hollow CGI. I was so obsessed with how robbed I was that the sequel to a mediocre genre flick in the 80's would spawn something in the same vein but with a larger budget. p^ My work began to suffer. My wife moved out and took the kid after suffering a stress induced miscarriage. I commiserated with some of the trolls on AICN but that did little to stem my downward spiral. I just couldn’t understand how I could be so bothered about something that truthfully meant so little to me. After much soul searching in the bottom of a bottle and at the end of used needle, it finally dawned on me that I was a soulless, artless, talentless drone consuming media packets that sometimes come in repeating flavors. I then killed myself before submitting this to the site.

    Harper, how's the w-fi in the afterlife?

    by I_Snake_Plissken

  • The gaming sequences (which let’s face it are the only thing that made the original Tron fun) were well done. The visuals were great, and Olivia Wilde was a smoking hot piece of eye candy. But, the overall story was flat, and the whole thing was brought down by Lebowski Flynn. Flynn was a cocky, strong-willed SOB in the original, his mellowing just didn’t work….man.

    LOL! @ Harper... that all happened in Tron 3

    by T

    What really would have been a hell of an ending was all those friggen Programs breaching "our" world with Flynn's son(whashisname) & Tron trapped on the otherside...

    Great idea. Legacy also lacked an awesome villian, bad-Flynn was no MCP or Zark.

  • Disagree. The very concept itself is the where the fun lies.
