Next “Tron” Film Gets “Eight Below” Scribe

David DiGilio (“Eight Below,” “Traveler”) is set to write the sequel to “Tron: Legacy” for Disney Pictures says The Hollywood Reporter. Original scribes Adam Horowitz and Adam Kitsis were slated to return but their commitments to ABC’s “Once Upon a Time” have prevented it.

The fate of this potential third “Tron” film is currently in flux, the $400 million worldwide gross sits on the uncomfortable borderline – enough to show there’s an interest out there, but not enough to guarantee a sequel.

A lot will depend upon the performance of the animated show “Tron Uprising” next year, and if the studio can find ways to ensure the sequel would be considerably cheaper to shoot.
