Plans to film a sequel for Tron: Legacy have been abandoned, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Earlier this year, there were indications that Disney was moving forward with the third instalment of Tron and that the production would return to Vancouver in October. However, plans for the sequel fell apart, despite being years in development.
It was originally reported that Garrett Hedlund had signed on to return to the cast.
In the previous film, Hedlund starred as Sam Flynn, the son of the 1982 film’s original character Kevin Flynn (played by Jeff Bridges) who became stuck in the Grid’s digital world for two decades. The character Quorra, a skilled Grid warrior and confidante to Kevin, was portrayed by Olivia Wilde.
A majority of Tron: Legacy was shot at Canadian Motion Picture Park in Burnaby while some ‘real world’ scenes were filmed at the Shangri-La Vancouver Hotel (ENCOM headquarters), the Lions Gate Bridge (final escape scene) and neighbourhoods in East Vancouver.
The 2010 film attained $400 million in the box office with a $170 million budget.
