Garrett Hedlund and Olivia Wilde to Return for TRON 3

Roughly a month ago Disney made the announcement that they were going t move ahead with third TRON film.  TRON: Legacy wasn’t a huge hit domestically, but did ultimately pull in $400 million worldwide.  Now The Hollywood Reporter is stating that Garrett Hedlund and Olivia Wilde will be reprising their roles as Sam Flynn and Quorra in the new film.  There is no statement yet whether Jeff Bridges will be back, but it’s difficult to picture the series continuing without his involvement in some capacity.  Joseph Kosinski is returning to direct with David DiGilio and Jesse Wigutow writing the script.
