Tron: Legacy Sequel: The on-again, off-again sequel to Tron: Legacy is once again a go. Questions arose after the 2010 reboot disappointed at the box office, at least in comparison to its production and marketing costs. But, ultimately, grossing $400 million worldwide was good enough for Disney, which is now in talks to hire Jesse Wigutow to write a new draft. Joseph Kosinski is still attached to direct.

Now Casey Affleck wants to make a new version; he’s sold a pitch titled Boston Strangler to Warner Bros. and hopes to star in the movie himself as one of the detectives investigating the murders.
