It's been awhile since we've heard anything from the TRON camp. Last we heard was that pre-production on the third installment to the franchise had stopped last fall and that Disney wasn't returning to The Grid anytime soon. That bummed a lot of people out, but I'm not going to assume anything. There could've been a number of reasons this happened. Allow me to throw this out there. Director Joseph Kosinski wanted to bring Jared Leto on for the third installment, but no deal was actually inked. I'm not going to say Jared wasn't interested, but in my humble opinion, he was more psyched to play the Joker in the new DC film Suicide Squad than he was to get digitized, and who could blame him? The Joker is the role of a lifetime!
Another idea is that Joseph is moving forward with his Black Hole movie (owned by Disney) that he had been talking about doing for quite sometime. What I'm getting at is there's no way Disney is going to turn it's back on a film that grossed 400 million worldwide. Then there's this trailer for a new TRON game that's being released by Disney Games, which lets me further know, that this franchise is just being reworked and in no way shape or form has it been shelved.
Now about this trailer!
It's a runner game and seems to follow a "program" running along The Grid trying to escape adversaries, mainly other players, since I here this will be a multiplayer game. The trailer shows the "program" utilizing a ton of the new vehicles we saw in TRON:LEGACY! No word yet if Daft Punk lent thier talents to the soundtrack of this game. The game will run on Steam, XBOX ONE and PLAYSTATION 4 and is gearing up for a February 16 release. It's a visually stunning trailer here's to hoping the story is equally enjoyable!! See you on The Grid program!
