Director Joseph Kosinski talks ‘Tron 3’

Director Joseph Kosinski while discussing the Tron: Legacy DVD and Blu-ray release, the director spoke to ASSIGNMENT X about the status of the next sequel Tron 3 (nicknamed by fans as TR3N).

“We’re working on the story right now,” Kosinski tells AX. “Once we get a script we’re all really happy with, we’ll take it to the powers that be and see if we can go back to the grid.”

‘Tron 3″ in the works?

As for the storyline, Kosinski says the film will continue the adventures of Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund)

“I think we will pick with where Tron: Legacy left off,” he says, “with Quorra (played by Olivia Wilde) in the real world and what does that mean and the possibilities it opens up for the next chapter. It’s that relationship between the two of them that’s the next step.”

Fans are hopeful that Cillain Murphy’s role as the son of Dillinger could be expanded for the new film after Murphy made a brief appearance in Legacy.

“Dillinger was a really important part of the first film and felt like an easy way to continue that storyline and thread to have his son in the new movie,” says Kosinski.

“That way you have people ask those questions of what the Dillinger legacy is in the world of Tron. We didn’t want to ignore it completely and it leaves a really nice springboard for some intertwining development for the next film.”

As for coming aboard officially as a director for Tron 3, Kosinski says he’s game, but fans will have to wait has he is scheduled to direct the Disney reboot of The Black Hole and a science fiction action flick titled Oblivion, which is currently shopping for a new studio.

“That’s my intent,” says Kosinski. “We’re developing it now. It’s all about getting a script and story and making sure we can get the same team back together.”
