Tron 3 Title Revealed Then Deleted by Jared Leto

There was little movement on the project after that, until earlier this summer, when more rumors about a Jared Leto Tron started hitting the Grid - excuse me, the internet.

Plans for Tron 3 have been in the works for years.

On Leto'sTwitter now sits a nice boilerplate message about his excitement to star in Tron 3, saying, "I'm struck with such gratitude for the opportunity to bring this movie to life, especially as both the original video game and the film affected me so deeply as a young child".

That fact aside, you can't keep a science fiction franchise like Tron down for long, and whatever the title may end up being, it looks like this upcoming sequel involving Jared Leto is the real deal. Speaking on Light the Fuse podcast, Leib has also confirmed development on TRON 3 is still moving forward by revealing that the studio has already found a script they really like for the long-awaited project. For all we know this could be a project title. On the one hand, that's great. I am so very excited and proud to confirm that YES - I will be starring in TRON.

I rewatched Tron: Legacy in late 2019, and felt pretty much the same way I did when it came out: That it's a great-looking, great-sounding bad movie. The original TRON underperformed at the box office, but it nonetheless managed to find an important place in pop culture over the next few decades.

The original "Tron" was a box office disappointment when it opened in the summer of 1982, but its groundbreaking use of computer graphic imagery - to capture the story of a programmer (Jeff Bridges) who gets zapped inside a CPU mainframe - helped earn the film a cult following.

Almost 30 years after Disney brought the virtual world back to life with the Joseph Kosinski-helmed sequel Tron: Legacy which featured the return of Jeff Bridges' Kevin Flynn after 28 years since the first film. That could imply the reboot is still part of the same universe as the previous two films, but it's unclear if characters like Garrett Hedlund's Sam Flynn or Olivia Wilde's Quorra will return.
