‘Tron 2′ Gets New Cast Members

(New writer alert! Hey folks, just a quick note to let you know we’ve brought a new writer on board: Ross Miller. Go easy on him, will ya? simple smile Tron 2 Gets New Cast Members – Vic)

We all know the sequel to Tron is on the verge of being made, with a Spring 2009 shoot being eyed. Sadly, though, the release isn’t until 2011 so we have over two years to mull over the inevitable slew of news and images that will get released between now and then. On the casting news side of things (after Jeff Bridges confirmed he will be in it) we have news that two actresses have signed on.

They are Olivia Wilde (who you may know from the TV show House) and Beau Garrett (who, at a stretch, you may recognize from her small role in Fantastic Four 2), who will both play characters within the virtual computer world. Both of them are relative newcomers with their biggest claim to fame (at least in the movie world) being that they both appeared in the terrible horror film from 2006 called Turistas.

The plot details of the this are being kept very hush-hush and one can only assume, since a detail was released revealing that it will be “the next chapter,” that it will involve Jeff Bridges’ character. Here’s the only plot synopsis we’ve seen so far:

“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.”

I think it’s a film ripe for a sequel, considering what they can do with visual effects nowadays and I actually think it could do pretty well. It’ll definitely get all of those folks’ money who remember the first one, who still cherish it from their younger years. Of course, that’s always the point of a sequel/remake, isn’t it?

Let’s just hope they keep the essence of it, the neon look in particular is absolutely essential.

    (srry i had to)

    the comicon teaser was cool.
    i think after the end of tron 1,
    that Jeff’s character
    (who has became the head of the company) has become corrupt with power andwith his nolage of the mainframe and what it can do, and has become the power hungry
    “Bad guy” for the sequal.

    thats just a theory that poped in to my head.

    How can you say it is ruined and it hasn’t even been made and there are barely any details of the movie out?? I hardly think that TRON was a classic film; it was a pretty good popcorn flick in it’s day. I’m interested to see what they make of it.

  3. why why why why why?
    This film does NOT belong in this day and age! Another classic, ruined :(

  4. i think its awesome they’re making a sequal. I love olivia wilde so this will be interesting.

  5. Loved Tron. A remake could be very good due to the superior tech, and great to know Bridges is in too.
    Hope it is done right. If so, great, if not, uhoh.

  6. Thank God they are making a sequel….I mean, C’mon…..the original didn’t even BOTHER to put in the token supermodels, like this one is.

    Can’t wait to see it!

  7. Tron, in my mind, is classic. i also think that Tron 2 is a great idea. unlike other sequels like terminator, star wars, and anything that involves tom cruise.

    looking forward to 2011.

    Well, I’m not a big fan of late sequels. It just gives me the idea they just can’t think of new and fresh ideas anymore. Just leave the past where it is, Tron was part of the culture back then. It would be like bringing back the Goonies in a “MP3 and laptop”-age, it just doesn’t fit. (Oh wait, they are bringing back the Goonies…)

    Most of the movies that are out there, do not need a sequel, even after a year or two. Hollywood needs to know when to stop.
