Tron: Legacy Sequel On The Way!

I’ve been saying that there would be a sequel to Tron: Legacy for the longest time–despite the fact that the Joseph Kosinski-directed sequel to 1979’s Tron was pretty uneven and didn’t actually make all that much money, relatively speaking.

It earned $400 million on a $170 million budget, which isn’t by any means a failure, but hardly Transformers money.  Then again, it must have been enough, because we’re getting a sequel!

Supposedly, the title is going to be Tron: Ascension, and while at the moment it remains hidden who’s going to be doing the ascending, I think it works much, much better than the title of the prior filming the series.

Though what I hope it brings back–besides Wendy Carlos–is the sense of innovation that the original film possessed.

And speaking of the original, it was a remarkable film in many ways, though like its sequel it had a storyline that was not nearly as interesting as its special effects.

Here’s to hoping that the third time around is the charm.
