Tron: Legacy, while not taking in as much as predicted is still doing ok numbers, but still has a long way to go before it’s out of the red. It is an understatement to say, "The problem with Tron: Legacy is ..." because, in due fairness, Joseph Kosinksi's 3D behemoth doesn't have any obvious single flaw. It's got them plural. Its debut weekend box office take was $44 million, which is not actually that great. The reviews have been best described as mixed but there are already Tron Legacy sequel rumors flying around and today producer Sean Bailey has added to them.
Bailey has today admitted that they have got some ideas for a sequel but haven’t yet decided whether they’ll push forward. “We’ve talked about a sequel and we have some beginning thoughts, but we didn’t hold anything back for this film,” said Bailey, in an interview with THR. “It’s really hard to make a good movie, and we put everything we had into this one.”“I think Tron has the potential to become a real franchise,” said Bob Iger, the CEO of Disney. “Right now the focus is on launching a great movie and a great video game, and then hoping that the people out there agree with us. If they do, we have the ability as a company to basically turn something that’s successful in one medium or two into a true franchise. And we’re fully prepared to do that with Tron.” In other words, you’ll definitely see more Tron, it just may not necessarily be in the form of a film.
