Tron 2 Gets New Name and Late 2010 Release

Walt Disney Pictures announced today that the Tron follow-up will be called Tron Legacy and is currently set for a late 2010 release. The Joseph Kosinski-directed film stars Garrett Hedlund, Jeff Bridges, Bruce Boxleitner, Olivia Wilde and Beau Garrett.

Tron Legacy is a 3D high-tech adventure set in a digital world that's unlike anything ever captured on the big screen. Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund), the tech-savvy 27-year-old son of Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges), looks into his father's disappearance and finds himself pulled into the same world of fierce programs and gladiatorial games where his father has been living for 25 years. Along with Kevin's loyal confidant (Olivia Wilde), father and son embark on a life-and-death journey across a visually-stunning cyber universe that has become far more advanced and exceedingly dangerous.

Sounds kind of mediocre and it would have been better if it was just called Tron 2. I'm still anxious to see this even though the first one wasn't that good. The first films technology was pretty groundbreaking at the time of its release. I'm very curious to see if the sequel will deliver on this part too.
