Tron Sequel Gets Its Director

You certainly are persistent, Tron.

Break out your glowing Frisbees, everyone — the Tron sequel has a director!

Well, almost. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Joseph Kosinski — who will be directing the Logan’s Run remake, and is best known for the award-winning commercials he’s directed for Nike, Apple, and Nintendo — is “in final negotiations to develop and direct” the new Tron. Steven Lisberger, who wrote and directed the 1982 original, will be one of the sequel’s producers.

Storyline details are being kept under wraps for now, but Disney is referring to the new installment — apparently also titled Tron — as “the next chapter” in the original’s story. According to the report, Lost writers Eddie Kitsis and Adam Horowitz are at work on the script.

That all sounds fine. But here’s the news Tron fans are looking for:

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.

Odds are high that this will all be sort of lame, but as long as Light Cycles are involved, we’ll be there.
