TRON 3 sans Daft Punk



TRON: Legacy left critics and many fans cold, which reflected in the movie's worldwide box office. However, its saving grace was sumptuous IMAX visuals underscored by Daft Punk's lauded soundtrack.

Disney, undaunted, is apparently preparing a second sequel to TRON and will begin production, in Canada, this Fall. Director Joseph Kosinski will be back at the helm, but Daft Punk won't be reprising soundtrack chores and will make way for Skrillex.

"Tron 3 delivers on the promise of Tron: Legacy, particularly its final scenes," Kosinski promised back in 2013 while promoting Oblivion. "There's a big clue there as to where we'll go with the next one. There are also some characters we establish at the beginning of Tron: Legacy who have a much larger role in Tron 3." Oblivion was much improved and there's reason for hope.

Local Vancouver newspaper Vancity Buzz got the scoop, which has since been backed up by Badass Digest.
