Jeff Bridges Gets Digitally Scanned/Cloned For Tron Sequel

io9 has gotten word that Jeff Bridges has been sent up to Canada to get digitized so that the Disney can create a younger digital clone of the actor for Tron 2. According to the source, the high resolution scan picks up every little detail, and Disney will use the digital scans to make Bridges look younger in post, and even possibly implant the younger likeness on Bridges on a body double.

I'm not so sure the digital scan is for the film itself as digital scanning is also a common practice in video game development. The Los Angeles Times Tech blog reported a rumor earlier this week that Disney Interactive is also working on a new video game with the same title to accompany the 2011 film release.
