Jeff Bridges talks ‘Tron 3’ teasing a virtual reality film, a return to the Marvel film universe, ‘Big Lebowski’ sequel

Jeff Bridges may not be in many sequels, but will be joining the Kingsman series for next month’s sequel Kingsman: The Golden Circle and recently spoke out about the possibility of Tron 3, a Starman sequel or a follow up to The Big Lebowski.

In a new interview with Uproxx, Bridges explained that he expected to do Starman 2 but the movie continued as a TV series instead and he had no idea The Big Lebowski was spinning off without him into the upcoming movie Going Places.

On reprising his role as that iconic title character: “You know, there’s so many rumors about Lebowski, that they’re going to remake him, and so I hear those like everybody else. I get excited, but they all turn out to be rumors. I don’t think the [Coen] brothers are going to make another one. Who knows? You never know, though.”

For Marvel fans, Bridges says he would have loved to have returned for more Iron Man movies or other installments in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He tells Uproxx that he didn’t expect his villainous character, Obadiah Stane, to die in the first Iron Man because his script hinted otherwise:

“In the script, the script that I hired onto, my character lives! They open my suit up and I’m gone…But then when we got to shoot that scene, they didn’t open my suit up! I said, ‘Aren’t you going to open my suit up?’ They said, ‘No.’ I said, ‘You’re going to kill my guy?’ And they say, ‘Well, it’s a comic book. You could come back. Who knows?’ You know? But anyway….Who knows? They might bring him back, maybe they’re right. It’s a comic book and anything in comic book land can happen. So who knows?”

Bridges teased an update on the status of Tron 3 in an interview for Entertainment Weekly’s Sirius XM radio show, carefully dodging specifics.

“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?”

After many rumors and delays, it’s been seven years since the release of Joseph Kosinski’s Tron: Legacy, though that doesn’t matter since that sequel arrived 28 years after the original Tron. The latest rumor was that Jared Leto was joining the project.

Fans were excited to hear that Disney is bringing a Tron themed ride to Magic Kingdom – more HERE
