Olivia Wilde thinks that you will be blown away by Disney’s Tron 2.0. And she would know, since she’s in the movie. But don’t ask her what the name of her character is, or any story information, because she’s not going to tell you. Sci-Fi Wire caught up with the actress, and was able to get her to spill some advance hype for the much anticipated sequel.
Bruce Boxleitner has signed on to return in TRON 2.0, according to ComingSoon. Boxleitner played Alan Bradley, aka TRON, in the original 1982 Disney film Tron, and will reprise his role in the sequel. Previously announced, Jeff Bridges will reprise the role of Kevin Flynn, Olivia Wilde and Beau Garrett have also joined the cast. You might also notice that I called the film TRON 2.0, and not TR2N. Both the trades and IMDb have now adopted the new title, which makes me believe that Disney has finally come to their senses and have decided to return to the more logical sequel title.
In the original film, Bridges and Boxleitner joined forces to outmaneuver the master control program that held them captive in the virtual computer game. Not much is known about the story of the sequel, but some have speculated that Bridge’s character is no longer fighting the good fight.
