Garrett Hedlund (“Troy,” “Four Brothers”) is set to star in the “Tron” sequel for Walt Disney Pictures says The Hollywood Reporter.
Hedlund will play the lead, a man who finds himself pulled into the world of a computer and retracing the steps of a character from the original movie named Kevin Flynn.
Jeff Bridges is reprising the role of Flynn from the 1982 cult classic, while Bruce Boxleitner, who played the title character, is returning as well.
Olivia Wilde and Beau Garrett have also been cast in the project, the former telling Sci-Fi Wire that much of the sets will be built for real, not green-screened.
The project starts shooting this April in Vancouver.
