TRON 3 Officially Moving Forward With Jared Leto Set To Star

We thought this one might be dead in the water, but the trades are reporting that a third Tron movie is officially moving forward at Disney with Jared Leto set to star...

After years of languishing in development hell, a third Tron movie is finally moving forward at Disney.

Officially titled Tron: Ares, the threequel will star Jared Leto (Morbius, Suicide Squad), who's been attached to the project since 2017.

We actually got word that the movie was on track back in 2020 with Garth Davis (Lion, Mary Magdalene) set to helm, but THR is now reporting that Joachim Rønning has taken over as director. Jesse Wigutow penned the latest draft of the script.

Ares follows 2010's Tron: Legacy, but we don't know if it'll be a direct sequel or more of a relaunch of the franchise. Joseph Kosinski's movie was not particularly successful at the box office and drew mixed reviews from critics, but it developed a loyal following over the years, and fans have been Clamouring for a third film for quite some time.

Previous reports have indicated that some or all of the cast of Legacy (Jeff Bridges, Garrett Hedlund, Olivia Wilde) might reprise their roles, but there's no mention of that here.

Rønning previously directed Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, and co-directed Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales with Espen Sandberg. He recently completed filming on the Daisy Ridley feature Young Woman and the Sea.
