Gunn took to Facebook to quell a theory that has been spreading online, after he posted a picture of himself and his friend Jimmy Urine (lead singer of the electropunk band Mindless Self Indulgence) posing on a lifesize Tron lightcycle.
“[O]ver the past few days I have been getting more and more messages and tweets asking if I am involved in a Tron sequel,” begins the Facebook message. He then went on to debunk website Moviepilot’s statement that he’d once discussed working on such a project during a Facebook Live session “which never was, and never happened.”
“I was simply taking a photo with a cool prop,” he adds, before enumerating several sequel projects in which he has no involvement despite tangential evidence.
“And, so I don’t fail to mention it, in 2007 I attended a party where Pauly Shore was, and am also not attached to Encino Man 2,” Gunn informs us, before concluding, “Have a wonderful evening, all.”
Written and Directed by James Gunn, “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” opens May 5, 2017, and stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Glenn Close, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki and Kurt Russell.
