Joseph Kosinski gör just nu segervarv runt jorden tillsammans med sin senaste film Top Gun: Maverick, men backar vi bandet en handfull år så var han djupt inne i produktionen av Tron 3. Uppföljaren till det audiovisuella kalaset Tron Legacy. Den tredje delen i sagan om Flynn, Quorra och de andra var fullt färdigskriven och storyboardad innan den obarmhärtigt blev skrotad av Disney. Detta avslöjade regissören själv i en intervju som han nyligen gjorde med Vulture. Under intervjun sa han följande om situationen.
"I got so close. I really tried. I got close in 2015, and Disney pulled the plug on it. I hadn't built anything, but I had the whole movie storyboarded and written. I was really excited because it was inverting the idea: It was all that stuff coming into our world, and it was about the blending of the two. But it was a different Disney by 2015. When I made Tron: Legacy, they didn't own Marvel; they didn't own Star Wars. We were the play for fantasy and science fiction. And once you've got those other things under your umbrella, it makes sense that you're going to put your money into a known property and not the weird art student with black fingernails in the corner — that was Tron. And that's okay. Had I made Tron: Ascension, I wouldn't have made Only the Brave, and I wouldn't have made the movies I made. But remember, the first Tron was not a hit when it came out. It's a cult classic. And if Tron: Legacy's becoming the same thing, I couldn't be more thrilled."
Kosinski berättade även om vad Quorra skulle kunna göra i den verkliga världen.
"I don't see them having superpowers. I don't see them being able to shoot lasers from their eyes or do what I would consider to be a superhero-type movie. But in her DNA itself, her being the first digital-human hybrid, there's something in her being that allows objects from inside the Grid to exist in the real world and makes them permanent, so that was the idea. So I think the idea is strong, it's just a matter of the right time and the right place and the stars aligning as they have to do for movies."
Vi önskar inget mer än att Tron 3 skall bli verklighet någon dag och detta är riktigt tråkiga nyheter att höra. Men vem vet vad som händer i framtiden. Vill du se en tredje Tron-film?
