‘Tron 3’ stuck again with Jared Leto still attached, nicknamed ‘Tron: Ascension’

Tron: Legacy director Joseph Kosinksi is still hopeful about a third Tron film, Tron 3, or as Kosinski has stated,  tentatively titled Tron: Ascension.

In fact, the director talked about Jared Leto’s near role in Tron: Legacy and the delays on the new film.

Kosinski confirmed that Tron: Ascension has finally moved beyond the ideas stage and gone on to the scripting stage. But that’s as far as it has gone for now for Ascension, which is a semi-sequel and reboot of the Tron franchise that was “being built out of the source code of the deleted Tron 3 script.”

There’s also Leto himself, who Kosinski said was initially going to appear in Tron: Legacy in 2009: “Jared and I had actually been talking about Tron since Tron: Legacy back in 2009. We almost put him in that movie, actually in [the End of Line club scene]! So Jared’s a huge fan and we actually batted around ideas and I was talking to him about that role in Ascension, but we only got to the script stage on that. We never really moved beyond that and that’s sort of where it sits for now.”

Tron: Ascension, which Leto teased last week is something he’s still in “discussions about and very much looking forward to bringing to reality.” He continued: “[Tron] was a huge movie for me as well and I do think there’s so much potential in that world, there so much left to be said. I’m absolutely game to try to help in any way that I can bring that to life.”

While there have been no rumors to add Jeff Bridges, he sounds hopeful: “I hope that happens. I think Joe [Kosinski]’s got the script and everything, you know. Yeah, I don’t know that I’m supposed to talk about it or not. I don’t know. It should be the first virtual reality movie, you know? Wouldn’t that be cool…to see Tron in that world?”

Disney may try to sync the new film with the roll-out of the Tron ride at Magic Kingdom in Orlando in 2021.
