Garrett Hedlund has confirmed that he will be making a return trip to the world inside a computer in TRON 3. That’s probably not a big surprise, though, considering that when he signed on for the role of Sam Flynn for 2010’s TRON: Legacy there was probably a contract clause covering potential sequels.
The sequel just recently gained a screenwriter in Jesse Wigutow and it is looking as if the project goes forward it will be in front of cameras sometime in 2014. TRON: Legacy director Joseph Kosinski is currently set to return to direct the new sequel.
In the 2010 film Hedlund played Sam Flynn, the son of the original 1982 TRON‘s hero Kevin Flynn, played by Jeff Bridges. Legacy ended with Sam escaping from the cyberworld inside a computer system, bringing the anthropomorphized computer program Quora (Olivia Wilde) with him back to the real world. Presumably the new film will pick up from this point and explore the ramifications of that.
