Flynn Lives! Garrett Hedlund to Return for TRON: Legacy Sequel

Following word last week that Walt Disney has brought aboard screenwriter Jesse Wigutow to rewrite their next TRON film comes confirmation, via NextMovie, that TRON: Legacy leading man Garrett Hedlund will return as well.

In the 2010 film, Hedlund played Sam Flynn, the son of the original TRON‘s Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges). Hedlund, who soon stars as Dean Moriarty in Walter Salles’ On the Road, previously reprised the role for a brief short on the TRON: Legacy DVD and Blu-ray release.

Although a specific plot has not yet been revealed, the next chapter was said earlier this year to involve an exploration of life and death in the digital realm.

Previously drafted by David DiGilio, Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, the third TRON adventure will again be directed by Joseph Kosinski.
