Tux Machines (TM)-specific
Tron - quite possibly the best example of a movie that could benefit from a legitimate sequel - is finally getting one. And who knew? A few dedicated - and better informed - film buffs maybe. But for the rest of us sci-fi supporters, certainly on this side of the Pond, it remained a secret.
It is being directed by Joseph Kosinski, a little known director currently working on a remake of Logan's Run. He replaced Steve Lisberger, director of the original, but Lisberger is staying on as a co-writer for the sequel.
The screenplay is being written by Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis - both co-executive producers of Lost.
With a working title of TR2N, Jeff Bridges is confirmed to be taking the role of Kevin Flynn once again and John Hurt and Karl Urban are rumoured to have major roles.
