    Yep

    The Grapevine says, Disney is about to Green Light a TRON LEGACY sequel...

    Published on: Jan 13, 2011 12:54:00 CST

    Hey folks, Harry here...

    And this was the happy word I received today on the Grapevine of Industry Insiders. TRON LEGACY, a film that many people loved, and a lot of people wanted more from, and that a very vocal minority incessantly b**** about... is getting close, incredibly close to having its SEQUEL announced!

    As TRON LEGACY is set to cross $300 million worldwide, the film has proved, beyond a doubt that there is an audience that buys this science fiction fantasy. And as DAFT PUNK's blisteringly awesome TRON LEGACY score continues to power the geek work force of the nation to plow through mindnumbing task after task... Disney is beginning to realize, TRON could be a franchise.

    As kids around the country pulled out wall crawling light trail leaving Tron LIGHT CYCLES from under their Christmas trees, Disney has been counting the receipts - and I'm told... it's about to hit the tipping point.

    Now the real question is... Where does TRON go from here? There is a plan, but it is being closely guarded. There's a TV show in the works to keep the brand popping till the next Theatrical run, but it looks like us TRON geeks won't be having to sit around for 28 years hanging onto this last one, like we did the first one.

    I just want glowing TRON shoes in Adult sizes. Yeah, I'm crazy that way. I have had the old Adidas TRON shoes long before TRON LEGACY was announced as happening, and my Hallmark TRON ornament desperately wants a glowy RECOGNIZER ornament next year!

    So... if you've been stalling revisiting the game grid again, after watching THE GREEN HORNET this weekend, take another trip.​

    I think in this one they should show about 5-10 minutes of action sequence and sit around and talk about geeky metaphorical universes in the rest of the film.


    OH. WAIT.














    (yes, i'm trolling Tron.)

    I am one of the ones who thought it was dreadful. Not the acting, not the directing, not the world, not the 'universe' they created. Plain and simple, the writing was worse than bad.

    Iso's? The most important concept they came up with, and you see 'them' for a grand total of maybe 10 seconds, and never understand at all why they are supposed to be so important? All except Olivia of course, but how she was 'different', who knows? Except that she was unusually perky and friendly? She wasn't even a badass like Leelu.

    I am all for taking good advantage of this world, this universe, it COULD end up being something as cool and signifigant as something like Matrix, but Good God get a good writer this time!

    The most thoughtful review of this movie that I read...and I think it hits on what your issue is, too:

    "even more enmeshed than its predecessor with questions of human-computer interaction and philosophical conundrums...but these questions become so dense and filled with shorthand mumbo-jumbo that they cease to capture the imagination by the third reel."

    I was fine with it. Visually it was impressive, and I thought the action pieces (particularly the early ones) were very well done. I had no problem with the pacing of the action. The ISOs thing doesn't bother me, and there are definitely issues with the script, but overall I felt entertained when it was over.

    Also, Daft Punk's score kicked ass.

    Bring on the sequel.

    i agree that the isos story needed a bit more explanation. I get that they were spawned on their own without users. I tend to think that they were something like an AI type thing. Maybe touching on the idea that a advanced computer system left on it's own will have spontaneously create a kind of AI...but that's just my guess/

    either way, it could/should have been explained more. But let's be realistic...it's tron and the entire premise to begin with is silly.

    Still, the movie was entertaining and i'd see another one.

    I think the biggest thing for me is that if there is a sequel, I want to see more of the grid. I was a little underwhelmed but how little of it we saw.

    And bring back Cillian Murphy to be the villain!

    Tron Legacy was a total disaster with terrible writing, directing with no creativity behind it. I can't believe they totally they blew it since there are so much to can do with this kind of genre and theme.

    Hopefully they start from scratch with someone who understand the concept of what a cyberpunk movie should be like by learning from the Matrix, Inception, Ghost in The Shell and a few others that I can't recall at the moment.

    Speaking of cyberpunk, I would love to see someone attempt to make Snow Crash into a movie..

    Until studio green lights it, it's just fan talk.

    I'm still wondering why Jeff Bridges agreed to do this tron. It's not a movie worth watching more than once because some of the writing is terrible at times. I.e. when Quorra is telling Sam how she ended up with his Dad.
    The cgi they did was amazing though.

    I think a sequel has potential to add in a lot more depth to the iso storyline but unless the dialogue improves it's going to be dull and corny as heck.

    Harry Knowles is as in the loop as it gets.

    Jeff Bridges isn't a snooty actor by any means. He's doing Hyundai voice-overs.

    I'd prefer Diamond Age if they did any Stephenson book.

    I guessed I might check out Snow Crash. Haven't read a science fiction novels in years.

    I've lost touch with the sci-fi genre so if anyone who knows an outstanding cyberpunk novels fill free to add.

    There are so many good novels out there to make into good movies but sadly hollywood and their producers are a bunch or morons.
