TRON 3 is Happening! Thoughts on the Latest News.

What fans can expect from TRON 3 is a different story direction than what’s implied from the last film, and that’s okay given the time that’s elapsed since that release.

Tron Legacy IMAX PosterWhatever the reasons were for delaying the making of Tron 3, I’m simply glad it’s happening! News has been dropping fast and furious concerning what’s been changed since Joseph Kosinski’s original plans back in 2015.

Although we’re not getting the continuation with what he fashioned after Tron Legacy, the concept is still there. According to, the film is due to begin shooting in Vancouver come August, and on, Jodie Turner-Smith is the latest star announced to appear in this film. She will be joining Jared Leto, Evan Peters and Greta Lee.

Joachim Rønning (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales) is the director this time round. He’s a very competant director to handle this property after having more than a few films made for Disney under his belt. And the talents tapped to pen this instalment add Jesse Wigutow and Jack Thorne to the mix. Series creator Steven Lisberger is no doubt the lead of this writing team.

* Spoiler Alert

Suicide Squad is definitely a lot of fun with Deadshot (Will Smith) commanding this team! Technically, it’s Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman) but if this individual is going to be the good guy to take care of the bad guys, he certainly needs to learn from Deadshot in how to rile and rouse a team into action. More could have been done in the tale to show these two have a battle of wills and decide who is the most righteous. But instead, the story weaves in and out of identifying who will make up this team and why they are brought together.

The plot felt inspired by Ghostbusters I and II. Certain set pieces were definitely very familiar — where the team has to go into the heart of where the commotion is taking place in a ravaged city. Just who caused the destruction was never revealed in the trailers. It could have been terrorists, another meta-human gone postal or even be an alien invasion. A major reveal follows:
