TRON Sequel Inching Closer To Reality?

By TronFAQ on Thursday, November 15, 2007 at 4:18 PM

The site Collider.com has an article featuring an interview with TRON star Jeff Bridges (who played Kevin Flynn in the film), where Bridges sounds upbeat and enthusiastic about doing a sequel.
"But the reasons to do it and the reason I did that one (the original TRON) was because it was so innovative and I understand that they’ve got a whole new batch of stuff like that . . . innovations that they want to use on this so that could be kind of fun." - Jeff Bridges

Bridges is also quoted as saying "I hear they’re going to pitch me one (the sequel) pretty soon so . . .", but the tone of his speech indicates that he was joking when he said this. Or was he?

An MP3 of the interview that you can listen to, is available from the site. The interviewer asks Bridges about a TRON sequel, at approximately the 7:45 mark.

I noticed that the interviewer misinterpreted Bridges as saying "dancebell". What he actually said, was "dancebelt". Bridges was referring to the belts the actors had to wear, that were part of their "electronic world" costumes. The belts were uncomfortable for the actors, and Bridges was joking about them as perhaps being a reason not to do a sequel.

TRON Comic Issue 5 Preview

By TronFAQ on Wednesday, November 14, 2007 at 4:02 PM
TRON: The Ghost In the Machine co-writer Landry Walker has recently been posting quite a bit of preview artwork for issue #5 of the comic, if you know where to look.


A number of people seem to be confused about the status of the comic, so let me take this opportunity to clear things up.

There will be six issues. Four have been released, so far. Issue #4 came out in July. The release date for #5 is unknown at this time. According to the latest schedule update on SLG Publishing's site: it will not be out by January 2008. However, this could very well change. If the date becomes known, I'll post an update.

UPDATE: According to Landry, issue #5 may be released in December.

You can expect both issues #5 and #6 to be released by August of 2008, because that's when SLG's license for their Disney comics expires.

As some of you may have noticed, I still haven't written my review of issue #4 yet. Well, it's still to come. I haven't forgotten. :)

Site Upgrade Complete

Well, almost.

It's taken a lot longer, and been a bit more difficult, than I expected. But the upgrade for this site is very close to being complete. I'll be fixing any other minor problems that remain, over the next few days.

Hope you like the new look and features.

Note that the site looks a lot better in Firefox and Opera, than it does in Internet Explorer. I'll try my best to improve the appearance in IE, but no guarantees. I'd recommend switching to Firefox or Opera, anyway. :)

He discusses how even today, when he mentions that he worked on TRON: people's eyes light up at the mention. Bonifer also remarks that revealing he worked on TRON has become "a special badge of honor".
