Tron 3 is about to emerge from its imprisonment in the proverbial Grid of Disney’s backlog, as evidenced by the Mouse Home’s appointment of a director.
Garth Davis is now set to direct the long-gestating untitled third movie in the Tron franchise, reviews Deadline. Davis, an rising expertise identified for indie dramas, most just lately directed the 2018 Rooney Mara-starring Biblical epic, Mary Magdalene, and the Oscar-nominated 2016 Dev Patel-starring biographical piece, Lion, alongside with tv runs with High of the Lake (for which he shared an Emmy nod,) and Love My Method.

Furthermore, Leto can be set to function a producer, joined in that capability by Justin Springer and Emma Ludbrook. After all, the threequel has notably seen a number of begins and stops over the years.
