New ‘Tron 3’ rumor: production beginning in October after ‘Star Trek 3’ start

A new report suggests that a sequel to Tron: LegacyTron 3, is on its way sooner than later, shooting in Vancouver, late this year. Disney has been quiet on the new Tron film, will scattered updates from creator Joseph Kosinski and this update only mentions star Garrett Hedlund, leaving out Olivia Wilde and Kosinski.

“The sequel to 2010’s Tron: Legacy will be filmed in Vancouver beginning this fall. Walt Disney Pictures has green lighted the third film in the Tron series, sources tell Vancity Buzz entertainment contributor Lindsay Barker. Filming is scheduled to begin on October 5, 2015.”

What is most surprising is the sudden production move, October is quickly approaching and there has been no real news or announcements. Vancity adds that Star Trek 3 will also be filming in Vancouver, beginning June 1, but the film already has a production team and is expected in theaters in 2016.

Badass Digest confirmed the news, saying Tron 3 is definitely shooting this fall in Vancouver, with Legacy director Joseph Kosinski returning to direct, but offered no other updates.

Bruce Boxleitner’s update that the film would land in 2016 may prove to be accurate.

“All I know is, they don’t tell me anything, but they want to do it I would say probably the end of this year, for 2015 maybe,” Boxleitner said in 2014. “They don’t have any dates but I’m thinking from the scuttlebutt I’m hearing that’s it, but I don’t know anything for sure other than they do have a script they love, they’re still tweaking.”

Kosinski said the new film will follow the same characters, Sam and Quorra, hinting about Dillinger being key. More on that, also from 2014, click here

Expect an announcement anytime if this is legit.
