Do We Really Need ‘Tron 2’?

tron-movieAfter months of rumors, Jeff Bridges himself has confirmed that Hollywood is going try and cash in on generational nostalgia. In an interview with cinemablend.com, Bridges not only said a sequel of the 1982 sci-fi hit Tron is in the works but that he’s considering taking part in the film. When I heard about the possibility of a sequel, my eyes rolled at the thought of studio executives trying to cash in on the emotional ties of the 30 something demographics increasing spending power. Do such motivations ever result in decent films? Don’t worry about this pollution taking your money yet, the project is in the early stages and won’t see screens any time before 2010.

    If Jeff Bridges is interested in being in this sequel, then there’s a good chance the film will be at least entertaining. He’s one of the best actors out there and I can’t think of single bad film he’s starred in over the past ten years. Barbara Streisand’s craptacular “The Mirror Has Two Faces” doesn’t count because that was 1996 and thus eleven years ago.
    “Tron” was an interesting concept, so I’ll be interested in seeing what direction they would take the sequel. However, if Bridges doesn’t like the script and isn’t involved, then my interest level will plummet.
