First things first: 'Tron Legacy' and 'Oblivion' director Joseph Kosinski isn't helming 'Star Wars Episode VII,' but according to an interview with MTV, he's flattered that so many people are asking him about it. Although he claims that he won't be journeying to a galaxy far, far away any time soon, he did confirm the recent scuttlebutt that a 'Tron 3' is in the works and that he is attached to direct.
It wasn't too long ago that work on a 'Tron 3,' the sequel to 2010's Disney action flick 'Tron: Legacy,' was announced with 'Eragon' writer Jesse Wigutow whipping up a script treatment. Considering how poor the Joseph Kosinski-directed movie performed, it wasn't that big of a surprise that the studio decided to swap out their writing team, but there is one person from 'Legacy' Disney will definitely be sticking with, and that's Garrett Hedlund, aka Sam Flynn himself.
'Tron: Legacy,' like 'Tron' before it, was hyped and hoped to be the next big thing. With 'Legacy,' Disney spent years prepping audiences for the return of the light cycle and deadly discs to the big screen, even though the first film was viewed as a cult hit that tried and failed to be the next 'Star Wars.' But even though 'Tron: Legacy' was not the runaway success hoped for, Disney may be going back for more.
