When I made Tron: Legacy, Disney didn’t own Marvel or Star Wars. We were the option for a fantasy story and science fiction. When you get those other franchises, it makes sense to put money where it’s safest and not the weird art school kid sitting in the back with black fingernails. And that was Tron. But it’s okay.
Kosinski also revealed that the feature already had a script ready and even finished storyboards, practically ready to shoot. the provisional title Tron: Ascension it was also used in news from years ago.
