I’ve been quietly tracking the upcoming Ryan Reynolds/Jeff Bridges movies, R.I.P.D. and the latest trailers featuring James Hong and Marisa Miller have me rolling.
Disney has announced Garrett Hedlund will star as the lead character in the update to the 1982 film Tron.Â Hedlund has appeared in Troy, Friday Night Lights, Four Brothers, Eragon, and Georgia Rule. Hedlund will play the lead, a man who finds himself pulled into the world of a computer and retracing the steps of a character from the original movie named Kevin Flynn. Hedlund joins Olivia Wilde, Beau Garrett, and Jeff Bridges, who is reprising his role as Flynn. via THR
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. via THR
I really get the distinct impression that Paul Dini has a collection of favorite Batman characters; Zatanna, Batman, and the Riddler, as this issue features another appearance by the criminal turned good guy trying to out smart one of the most brilliant minds in the DCU.
