Tron: Legacy was supposed to be a really cool movie, innovative, sleek and damn entertaining, unfortunately it wasn't. Legacy seemed to have a good movie in there somewhere but with a script that just did not seem finished it didn't stand a chance. Disney did make back its reported $170 million budget in the United States and took in around $400 million worldwide, still not close to what they hoped for ..but apparently enough to bring on the sequel. Hit the jump for the details.
In an interview with AssignmentX, Legacy director Joseph Kosinski has revealed that a story for the sequel is currently being developed. "Once we get a script we’re all really happy with, we’ll take it to the powers that be and see if we can go back to the grid," The director went further and gave us some juicy info on the direction of the project: "I think we will pick with where Tron: Legacy left off with Quorra in the real world and what does that mean and the possibilities it opens up for the next chapter. It’s that relationship between the two of them that’s the next step."
Interestingly he revealed that the son of Dillinger, [Cillian Murphy], would play a big role: "Dillinger was a really important part of the first film and felt like an easy way to continue that storyline and thread to have his son in the new movie. That way you have people ask those questions of what the Dillinger legacy is in the world of TRON. We didn’t want to ignore it completely and it leaves a really nice springboard for some intertwining development for the next film."
Also according to the site the working title appears to be TR3N.
