It’s taken 25 years, but Disney’s classic TRON looks like it’s a go for sequel. Rather than joining the rest of the internerd in giddy shrieking, I have an honest-to-god question: Has anyone played that TRON 2.0 first person shooter? I heard varying things about it, but I wouldn’t mind taking it out for a spin.
When making the original, in order to convince the studio to take a chance on a first-time director, Lisberger shot a test reel, financed by the studio, involving the deadly Frisbee battle. In a case of historical synchronicity, sources said one of the things Kosinski will be doing is working on a sequence involving the movie’s Light Cycles to work out his vision for the movie. Sources also said visual effects personnel, for many of whom “Tron” was an inspiration to enter the business, already are jockeying for pole position to work on the sequence.
