Has TRON 3 been greenlit?

Well, according to the folks over at the TRON Sector, it has. A teaser for TRON 3 will be on the DVD/Blu of TRON: Legacy.
Not much in the way of details as of yet… so file this under “rumor” for the time being.

You can czech out the home page of the TRON sector, or go here for the discussion thread about it.

So far TRON: Legacy has made about $330 million worldwide since it’s release on December 17th.

UPDATE 1/23/2011:

There is a post over at AICN now, seemingly confirming this… along with a  set pic and description of scenes filmed. Here it is for your enjoyment in case you are too lazy to click on a link:

Almost as exciting as the details that I got from the footage that was shot BEFORE Thanksgiving of last year to be a teaser of the future, it seems.

I was contacted by someone that worked on the shoot for this DVD Extra.   That this person’s experience on set gave him, it will be made up of at least 3 scenes.

One includes Bruce Boxleitner (as Alan) and Dan Shor (as Ram).   Turns out that “Ram” was apparently running the FLYNN LIVES campaign and he’s frantically destroying all of that data and files, as Alan confronts him.   Dan apparently utters the line, “Why did Kevin give you the cool name” – which means to my way of thinking that after Flynn came out of the Grid, he sought out the human soul of Ram and befriended him and started calling him RAM – you know – some geek that wrote that Actuarial Program that helped people plan for the future.   I sorta love that.   And love that the kindness Flynn showed this lowly geek, apparently created a gung ho champion for the life and memory of Kevin Flynn.

Another has Quora showing up to ENCOM and getting acousted by the press because she’s riding Sam’s Ducati – and states that she just spoke with Kevin Flynn, yesterday!

The last scene that was shot in this mini-shoot involved text screens where you see the Father & Son…  The Dillingers stating that everything is going as planned.

That particular bit has me giddy beyond fucking words.

Now how do I know this is true?  I’ve got the call sheets, location maps…  oh, and these: (click to see the pictures of the “Flynn Lives HQ” set)

If this turns out to be true, it sounds great! I can’t wait to see Dan Shor as part of the TRON Universe again! I had heard previously that he was the voice of “Zack” during the “Flynn Lives” ARG Marketing, but this confirms it.

OK, I guess the pictures were pulled from AICN, so here they are for your peeping eyes:

  1. This isn’t a teaser for Tron 3 it’s bonus material from the Flynn Lives campaign that was produced exclusively for the DVD.

I suppose you have a better thought on the subject?
