“Tron Legacy”, the highly anticipated follow-up to the 80’s sci-fi classic “Tron”, has been set for a December 17th 2010 release through Disney Pictures.
In the Joseph Kosinski-helmed 3D adventure, Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund), the tech-savvy 27-year-old son of Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges), looks into his father’s disappearance and finds himself pulled into the same world of fierce programs and gladiatorial games where his father has been living for 25 years.
Along with Kevin’s loyal confidant (Olivia Wilde), father and son embark on a life-and-death journey across a visually-stunning cyber universe that has become far more advanced and exceedingly dangerous. Bruce Boxleitner, James Frain, Beau Garrett and Michael Sheen also star.
Sony presently has both “The Green Hornet” and “The Smurfs” opening the same date, though ‘Smurfs’ is expected to move to 2011 shortly.
