Almost 27 years after the original, Tron 2 will soon be upon us. Jeff Bridges will reprise the role of Flynn with co-stars Bruce Boxleitner, John Hurt, Karl Urban and relative newcomers Olivia Wilde and Garrett Hedlund. The plot-line will include scenes of Flynn either interacting or watching over his younger self (see Comic-Con teaser footage below).
To accomplish this, Disney has started the process of digitization of Bridges by plaster casting and 3D modeling. This is the similar process that was used to make Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart look 20 years younger in X-Men: The Last Stand. Production and principle photography is scheduled to begin this spring for a 2011 release.
