A third Tron movie has been rumored for some time, and in August, it was reported that it’s finally happening. Tron 3 will follow 1982’s cult sci-fi adventure Tron and 2010’s Tron: Legacy, and is set to star Jared Leto (Blade Runner 2049, Suicide Squad). Leto is now in training for the role and has posted a picture on Instagram and Twitter of him “starting the Tron workout.”
The image shows Leto in a sleeveless shirt looking very intense. Of course, the Tron 3 workout probably isn’t very different from any other kind of workout, and frankly it’s hard to find a photo of Leto where he doesn’t look intense. But fans of the inventive sci-fi series will be excited that things are finally happening with the next movie. Check the picture out below.
While it’s very early days for Tron 3, we know that it’ll be directed by Australian filmmaker Garth Davis, who previously helmed 2016’s Oscar-nominated drama Lion. Leto is co-producing the movie, and Jesse Wigutow (It Runs in the Family) has reportedly written the most recent draft of the script. The film has not been given a release date yet.
The original Tron starred Jeff Bridges as a computer programmer who goes inside the software world of a mainframe computer where he interacts with programs in his attempt to escape. The movie was groundbreaking in its use of early CGI, and while it wasn’t a box office hit at the time, it has gained a devoted fanbase over the years.
As for Leto, he’ll next be seen in the Spider-Man spin-off Morbius. The film was set to be released in June, but has been delayed to March next year. For more, check out GameSpot’s guide to all the upcoming movies in Sony’s Spider-verse.
