The original Tron – annoyingly squeezed
Last week I passed along the Comic-Yawn report about footage to a sequel to Tron that I had never heard anything about. You didn’t care, but after thinking about it a little, the 5th grader inside of me got a bit excited, especially over word Jeff Bridges was in the footage.
Jim Hill Media has some additional information including the fact that the man behind the sequel is none other than Pixar’s John Lasseter. Writing the script are Eddie Kitsis and Adam Horowitz (TV’s Lost). Joseph Kosinski (Saab, Nike and X-Box commercials) will be directing.
Original director Steve Lisberger, who had spent five years developing a script for a sequel, is off the creative end of the project (he’ll still get a co-producer credit). Sucks to be him, but apparently Lasseter wasn’t a fan of the original movie’s story anyway.
