It’s Official Olivia Wilde is back for Tron 3, oh yeah, so are Garrett Hedlund and Joseph Kosinski

April 7th, 2015 by Marc Comments


Well, we’ve been following the progress of TRON 3 with great interest and finally we get confirmation that three of the five most important people are back…

Firstly, Joseph Kosinski is officially back as director which is great; we at FTN are big fans of him and his work and can’t wait to see him return to the Grid. Next up, Garrett Hedlund is back as Sam Flynn and  finally (for now) Olivia Wilde is back as Quorra.

Now we just need Bruce Boxleitner back as the titular TRON and Jeff Bridges as Kevin  Flynn – although he may have really died at the end of the last movie and, we suppose, Boxleitner could be done via CGI if he keeps the helmet on, but we’d love to see both actors back.

The movie films this fall and will be released sometime in 2016. Probably.

TRON lives.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
