‘Pan’ star Garrett Hedlund says ‘Tron 3’ has ‘gripping story,’ not totally dead

Disney may have pulled the plug on Tron 3 earlier this year, but Garrett Hedlund has said that film isn’t “totally dead” praising the planned script. While promoting Pan, Hedlund spoke with ComicBook.com about the science fiction film.

“I haven’t been told it’s totally dead,” Hedlund said. “Ever since we did Legacy, we knew that to have another story follow it up, it had to be concrete and exciting,” he added.

Hedlund starred as Sam Flynn in Tron: Legacy and was set to return for the new film with co-star Olivia Wilde.

“Disney needed to have the right story to go forward. I think it was going to introduce some things that were as exciting as Legacy was and then some, though.”

Preparations for filming were already underway in Vancouver before Disney decided not to go ahead with Tron 3 back in May.

2010’s Tron: Legacy brought the franchise to a new generation of fans, taking roughly $400 million worldwide and spawned the animated series Tron: Uprising, which aired from 2012 to 2013 on Disney XD.

“While sources say the project was never officially greenlit, earlier this year it seemed that things were moving ahead with Tron:Legacy helmer Joseph Kosinski returning to direct and stars Olivia Wilde and Garrett Hedlund reprising their roles,” the report stated in May.

This came after the box office disappointment of Tomorrowland, a big-budget live action sci-fi film that has earned only $53 million at this writing on a reported budget of $190 million.

“Disney’s live-action tentpole calendar is pretty full for the next few years,” the THR also added.
