Unless they’re privy to some knowledge of glorious re-naming for the sequel to “Tron”, The Hollywood Reporter has wrongly titled the sequel as “Tron 2.0” as opposed to its current, horrible name “TR2N”. In case you were wondering why Disney has chosen the terrible name over the good one, it’s because they wasted the good one on the 2003 videogame “Tron 2.0”. Thus, we are currently stuck with “TR2N”.
Also stuck with “TR2N” are actresses Olivia Wilde and Beau Garrett. THR also incorrectly lists the two actresses as the first to sign on to the project when it was pretty clear from the trailer at Comic-Con that Jeff Bridges is returning and on board for the sequel. But hey, don’t allow my facts and two seconds of research to get in the way of your press release. You were saying?
Plot details are being kept scarce but Wilde will play a worker in the virtual world who tries to help fight Master Control Program, the villainous intelligence protocol that was the nemesis in the original film. Garrett will play a siren in the virtual world and I’m assuming that’s an Odyssian-siren and not a whoo-whoo-siren.
“TR2N” is schedule for a spring shoot but isn’t set to be released until 2011 because you have to get those light-cycle effects just right. Garrett and Wilde previously starred together in “Turistas” where they were asked to, according to the poster, “Go home.”
