Olivia Wilde details ‘Tron 3’, the story, bringing Quorra back

Garrett Hedlund and Olivia Wilde are back with writer/director Joseph Kosinski for Tron 3 and now Wilde talks about the film at Tribeca Film Festival, confirming that she’s also heard that the movie will begin shooting in Vancouver in October.

“You know, I’ve heard the same,” Wilde says of the shoot beginning in the fall.

“I think there’s a lot of people really excited to make it happen within Disney and in the world, and we’ve been dreaming of making it since we finished Legacy so I would be thrilled.”

It hasn’t been anything else. There’s never been a time where we wanted to go and then schedules got in the way. It’s only been like, ‘That’s not the right story.’ So, in the past year, the right story kind of came together and we felt, ‘Oh, this actually – this might be the right one to tell.’ And, you know, there’s still a lot to be done before it could actually happen, but the fact that there’s a goal of this year to start is really exciting.”

At the end of Legacy, Sam and Quorra leave the grid and wind up in the real world.

“I love this character of Quorra so much and I’ve built her with Joe Kosinski and we took her such a long way from what was written to what we made. I mean, I fought for her to be this kind of androgynous child and that’s so not what you typically see in these movies, so I’m so grateful that the producers let me play with her and make her this strange little being. And I’m really excited to see what happens to that character when put into the real world. I think it’s an interesting concept. I’m fascinated by all discussions of AI, and especially now today and now with virtual reality becoming something that’s like a personal device, I think it’s the time to tell this story.”

Disney has yet to confirm that the film is actually happening, but Wilde certainly makes it seem like the studio and everyone involved is eager to get going.
