‘Tron’ Sequel Getting a New Name?
Slash Film is reporting that Disney continues to toy with the name for their sequel to Tron. For months now, the project has been known not as Tron 2 or Tron 2.0 but as Tr2n. Now, defying all reason, it may be altered to TRZ.
The news comes from Production Weekly although the studio has yet to officially name the project or provide a release date despite teaser images being made available since the summer.
The industry newsletter has the following synopsis “After being transported into the surreal landscape of a mainframe computer to destroy an intruder, a programmer finds himself allied with the leader of a rebellion against a corrupt cyber-entity.”
Jeff Bridges reprises his role as a programmer named Flynn with Karl Urban and John Hurt also said to be part of the cast. The new film has been written by Adam Horowitz (Lost) and Edward Kitsis (Lost) with Joseph Kosinski making his directorial debut. A 2011 release date is anticipated given the effects-heavy work required.
