Tron Animated Uprising

Olivia says the movie is dead, really?

Bad news for us TRON fans. The third movie appears to be on the backburner. End of line.

The third film, which would feature the return of Garrett Hedlund, Olivia Wilde and director Joseph Kosinski, is dead in the water. Despite all of its preproduction movement, Disney's opted not to move forward with Tron 3.

According to The Hollywood ReporterTron 3 never received an official green light. But in spite of that, major castings and crew hirings were made. They'd already begun prepping for the shoot that was slated to begin this fall. The original Tron was released in 1982 and starred Jeff Bridges and Bruce Boxleitner. It grossed $33 million. In 2010, Disney produced the followup, Tron Legacy, in which Hedlund played the estranged son of Bridges' character. The sequel grossed more than $400 million worldwide.
