Olivia Wilde and Beau Garrett are the first actors to sign to star in the update/remake/reimagining of Walt Disney’s Tron 2.0 movie.

The new movie is acting as a “next chapter.” Plot details are being guarded closely, but Wilde will play a worker in the virtual world who tries to help fight Master Control Program, the villainous intelligence protocol that was the nemesis in the original film.

Garrett will play a siren in the virtual world.

The main lead actor has not been cast, although it is surprising that Jeff Bridges isn’t involved in some way.
