"Tron: Legacy" Producer Holds Out Hope For Sequel

There still may be hope for a return trip to the Grid.

"Tron: Legacy" Executive Producer Brigham Taylor remains optimistic that a sequel to the 2010 film could make its way to the screen, despite its cancellation last year by Disney.

"I've always hope for that," he told Screen Rant. "I just had a wonderful visit to Shanghai, where they have an amazing attraction based on 'Tron: Legacy.' The designers just did such an amazing job creating the feeling of stepping onto The Grid. ... I think there's a real stickiness to that that I hope can grow into a film or whatever else. So I don’t know what I’d "hint" at other than that I hope for that, and that there's obviously been conversations."

"Tron: Legacy" director Joseph Kosinski and stars Garrett Hedlund and Olivia Wilde were set to return for the sequel, which reportedly had targeted a fall 2015 production date. However, the studio abruptly pulled the plug in late May.

The sequel to the 1982 cult classic, "Tron: Legacy" grossed $400 million worldwide on a reported $170 million production budget.
