According to a news story over at Variety.com, Disney has decided not to go ahead with the anticipated third Tron film.
So I guess this means we’ll never find out what happens next with Sam, or what the ramifications of Quorra being able to manifest outside of the computer are. And Cillian Murphy’s casting as Dillinger, Jr. will remain just a cool cameo, and not pay off in any was as hoped.
The reason for the cancelation is somewhat sad, too. Apparently, it was because Disney is making so many films that it doesn’t know when it would fit Tron 3 into its schedule. But the examples that Variety gives as some of the other product clogging Disney’s release slate seems questionable. I ask you, would you rather have Tron 3, or Tim Burton’s Dumbo?
