Garrett Hedlund to Return for Tron: Legacy Sequel

Garrett Hedlund has told NextMovie,com that he’s set to reprise his role as Sam Flynn in the sequel to Tron: Legacy.

Following the news last week that Disney had hired screenwriter Jesse (Eragon*) Wigutow to rewrite Tron 3, NextMovie pressed Hedlund about his involvement at the press junket for On The Road.

“Yeah,” said Hedlund. “Are we gonna break this now? Disney’s very excited. That’s about that. You know, yeah, I’m very excited, Disney’s very excited.”

No details have the plot have yet been revealed, but film is not expected to start shooting until 2014. Oblivion director Joseph Kosinski is once again expected to call the shots.

(* Don’t blame him – the book is terrible and he was onto a loser from the start.)
