Confirmed: 'Tron 3' in Pre-Production at Disney, Starring Jared Leto With Oscar-Nominated Director

Confirmed: ‘Tron 3‘ in Pre-Production at Disney, Starring Jared Leto With Oscar-Nominated Director. In 2017 Jared Leto teased fans about working on a third Tron film with Disney, but the story was shelved after Disney couldn’t find an outlet for the film. Now, in 2020, the film is back on the grid and is now looking to Oscar-Nominated Director, Garth Davis, to take the helm.

“Now with Disney+, I think there’s opportunities to be creating content that we otherwise wouldn’t have been able to create,” shared Michael Leib, Disney music executive, earlier this year. “…So I had lunch with Paul Hahn to further a bit of a starting conversation that we’re looking at making a sequel to Tron now, we’re looking at Tron 3. And we’ve got a great script, I mean a really phenomenal script that we’re very excited about. Whereas the timing wasn’t right to have done it years ago, I think we feel like the timing is right now, and I feel like we’ve learned a lot of lessons from that last movie.”

“The right and first thing to do is to try and bring Daft Punk and would they want to,” Leib continued. “And the answer is they’re always open to anything and everything, but you gotta take it as it comes and see what the circumstances are. We don’t even know who would be directing it, I mean we’re hopeful Joe Kosinski would come back and do another one. A lot of things gotta fall into the right places, but certainly, there’s an open-mindedness to it.”

Joining the production team is writer Jesse Wigutow who penned the revamped script for the film. Rumored to return are Tron: Legacy stars, Garrett Hedlund, Olivia Wilde, and Jeff Bridges. Leto’s character was rumored to be named “Ares” in the original script, but may see a name change with the new story. It is currently unknown if the film will premiere in theaters or exclusively on Disney+. Be sure to check back here at Chip and Co. for updates and all things Disney!
