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.

Thanks to Auric at TRON-Sector for the news.

    For fans of the artwork in Tron....

    PictureBox is pleased to announce a new book on airbrush art:

    Overspray: Riding High With the Kings of California Airbrush Art
    by Norman Hathaway

    Overspray is the conclusive account of the rise of airbrush art, and of the equally bright and
    glossy Los Angeles culture alongside which it came to prominence in the 1970s. Inspired by
    surf graphics, psychadelia and the slick shine of Hollywood, a generation of young artists
    began to make every lip and palm tree glisten, and every record cover shine. Fueled by a
    combination of intense demand, sleepless nights and brutal competition, the four men at the
    center of L.A.’s airbrush art market–Charles E. White III, Peter Palombi, Dave Willardson and
    Peter Lloyd–embarked on careers encompassing work for Playboy, Levi’s, the Rolling Stones,
    Rod Stewart and major studio films including American Graffiti and Tron. Together, their work
    came to define the look of illustrative graphics for a generation of viewers. This book tells the
    story of these four artists for the first time through hundreds of images of the artists’ best and
    best-known work, unseen production roughs, documentary photographs and other ephemera.
    Viewed now, their surreal, funny and utterly slick imagery seems all the more fantastic–
    combining technical precision with wild flights of imagination that bring to mind the work of
    some of today’s top artists. Compiled and designed by Norman Hathaway. Essay by Mike Salisbury, acclaimed designer
    of everything from Disney logos to Jurassic Park ad campaigns to Sassy magazine.
