One of our favourite movies here at FTN HQ is TRON and it’s sequel TRON: Legacy actually managed to pip it in many ways, so the news that a third movie is coming has us all excited…

Sure, we knew it was planned in 2010 when the second movie came out, but it was starting to look like it wasn’t going to happen. And after the fantastic TRON: Uprising animated series was cancelled, we were kinda worried.

But needlessly so, it seems.

The third movie, according to Vancitybuzz, is set to start shooting in Vancouver on October 5th after Disney gave it the go ahead.

Garrett Hedlund has reportedly been confirmed to return as Sam Flynn, son of Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges), the main character in the 1982 original, and  director Joeseph Kosinski is back on helping duties.

No word on Bridges’ return or Olivia Wilde who played Quorra in the sequel.

Now, if we can just get Daft Punk back on soundtrack duties and the rest of TRON: Uprising, everyone can go home happy…

Well, we’re excited… what about you guys?

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….
