Tron Quits Tron

Tron quits tronThe namesake of the entire Tron franchise has quit Tron as Bruce Boxleitner says he’s out.

The actor told Slashfilm that he was done with the franchise:

“I don’t really care anymore,” Bradley said when I asked him if he thought TRON 3 might get revived down the road. “I’m done with it. I’ve moved on. I hate to say that but it’s been too up and down for me. I would rather not just keep going. I don’t want to repeat my career anymore. That’d be like, ‘Let’s reboot Scarecrow and Mrs. King.’ No, I’m not interested. Or Babylon 5.”

Following the box office bomb of Brad Bird’s Tomorrowland, Disney quickly abandoned plans to produce the third Tron movie that was to be subtitled Ascension. With the sure-hits of Star Wars and Marvel, it seems like Disney doesn’t want to risk a third Tron movie bombing the way Tomorrowland did.
