    Default Tron 2.0

    Jeff Bridges & Bruce Boxleitner will reprise their roles in Tron 2.0 which is set for 2011 release date - 29 years after the first film. No word yet if Cindy Morgan will make an appearance (she played Lora/Yori)

    Original Tron boasted ground-breaking special effects involving gladiatorial battles involving motor bikes set “inside” a computer making it probably the first virtual reality movie ever. 1982 film cost a fortune to make, but bombed at the box office. In the interim, it's grown in cult status, particularly amongst ageing thirtysomethingers who were impressed with it as kids. The plot involved a hacker (Bridges) who is “swallowed” into a virtual reality world and has to battle a rogue computer entity with the help of another entity.

    The new $150 million effects-intensive feature film is being pushed as a “sequel” and not a remake, which will make it probably the most belated sequel in Hollywood history. Tron 2.0 will be filmed using stop motion capture and directed by Joseph Kosinski. It is reportedly being envisioned as a showcase for the Disney Digital 3D process.

    Garrett Hedlund will play the lead, a man who finds himself pulled into the world of a computer, retracing the steps of a character from the original movie named Kevin Flynn. Olivia Wilde will play a worker in the virtual world who tries to help fight Master Control Program. Beau Garrett will play a siren in the virtual world. Sean Bailey is producing along with Steven Lisberger, who co-wrote and directed the original film, and Jeff Silver. The movie is eyeing a spring shoot in Vancouver.

    Anyone remember that lame Tron ride at Disneyland back in the 80's?

    This was just on the other day on VH1! I watched it for a few and laughed. I'm sure my son will be bugging me to see Tron 2.0.

    uh no, it's just called 'motion capture'. Stop motion was back in the Harryhausen days!

    A movie ahead of its time! Loved it and can't wait for the sequel for us old farts. What was amusing is that supposedly the video game version actually outgrossed the movie, that game also rocked.
