There has been a lot of talk recently with Disney moving ahead with the sequel to ‘TRON: Legacy’. We recently got word that Garrett Hedlund (Troy and Four Brothers) has been confirmed to return in this third film installment. Director Joseph Kosinski (Oblivion) recently sat down with Collider and spoke a bit about the next TRON film.

When talking about the sequel, Kosinski says that they have an idea that’s worth pursuing;

“Well the only reason to go back, for me and I think for anyone involved would be if we could do something truly spectacular. We’ve been talking about it for a couple years and there’s always been this idea, a big idea, in the back of my head that we’ve been talking about. The idea itself, the notion of what the next Tron could be, is exciting enough that it would be worth going back to do it. Obviously we hinted some things at the end of Legacy, it’s kind of there for people to see what that potential is. So we just want to make sure that we have a script that delivers on that promise on an epic scale.”

Kosinski teased a bit about bringing in some new designs instead of rehashing material from ‘TRON: Legacy';

“I don’t want to say too much about it but the goal would not be to simply re-use. We’re not going to re-use the assets from Legacy, that’s no fun. If we’re going to do to it we’re going to reinvent all over again and it’s going to be a whole new generation for reasons that are very story-driven. That’s all I can say.”

When asked if Daft Punk will be doing the score for the third movie Kosinski seems hopeful;

“When it comes to building the team up for soundtrack they would absolutely be my first call. As to whether or not they would do it, it depends on what they’re doing at the time. They are very methodical in how they pick their next project, and they would only do it if they felt that they could dedicate themselves a hundred percent to that. I know they have another album coming out, I’m sure that’s going to be their next big project, which I assume is going to be followed by a massive tour. So, you know, hopefully if they’ve got the time and the creative willingness to dive back in.”

He also notes that there is still plenty of tracks there were unused in ‘TRON: Legacy’ that they already have a head start in that regard;

“Remember, there are a lot of tracks that they created that I still have that I wasn’t able to fit into TRON: Legacy. So we’ve already got a head start on some great tracks for the future, which I’m really excited about. Like I said, they would be my first call.”
