3rd ‘Tron’ Movie May Star Jared Leto

Disney pulled the plug on a TRON: Legacy sequel in 2015 after a stop-start developmental process, but are reportedly bringing the franchise back in a new guise with Suicide Squad star and Oscar winning actor Jared Leto their choice of lead.

The proposed third film is still far from confirmed and is yet to have acquired a writer, but the movie would be produced by Leto himself as well as his producing partner Emma Ludbrook and Legacy’s co-producer Justin Springer, with the core story moments from the original pitch for the third movie working as a base outline for whomever is brought in to script the film.

Both TRON (1982) and TRON: Legacy (2010) struggled to surpass their original budgets at the Box Office, but earned a lot of money in subsequent home releases with TRON long being considered a cult classic.

Jared Leto was recently confirmed as the director for an upcoming Paramount project titled ’77’ and was most recently seen in Suicide Squad last summer.
