The TRON: Legacy director, Joseph Kosinski, shares his thoughts on the upcoming TRON 3...

It's full steam ahead on the brand new TRON movie, with Disney ordering a fresh screenplay for TRON 3 just the other week, and Garrett Hedlund also confirming he was returning for the film. Furthermore, TRON: Legacy director Joseph Kosinski, currently hard at work on Oblivion (starring Tom Cruise), is also signing up again.

Chatting to MTV, Kosinski has given a brief update on the project too. "We've got an idea for the next movie that's really exciting to me", he revealed. "We have an idea and an approach and a way into it that I'm really excited about, and now it's about execution on the level of the script".

Work is ongoing on getting that screenplay right, and Kosinski revealed that "it's still the same plan in that TRON 3 would deliver on the promises set up at the end of Legacy in different ways. You look at what happened in the closing scenes of Legacy; I think it sets a clear direction for what could happen in the next chapter".

We're guessing that Kosinski will move onto the film once he's locked and promoted Oblivion (which is due out in April). We'll keep you posted.

I liked Tron: Legacy. Mainly because it was good to see Tron back on the screen. I'd like this one to actually focus on plot and get Daft Punk back!

Daft Punk soundtrack is a must!

Let's face it. Tron: Legacy wasn't that great of a movie, but it was an awesome Daft Punk music video. I hope they have some better ideas for Tron 3 because if Daft Punk isn't involved, I don't think they'll meet with the same success unless the movie is significantly better.

This will be a mistake to not get Daft Punk involved, they made Tron Legacy! Sure, the visuals were amazing but it is the score that made it great!

If young Kevin Flynn is set to return, they need to deliver a MUCH better CGI version of him. It was pretty much the only real flaw in the film. It was just too un-realistic.

They need to bring in the people who have just done the new Golum in The Hobbit. Its scary how much you think he is real and actually there. I know it's not a human, but the way the mouth moves with the speech is vital, and Tron Legacy did not cut it in that regards.

I look forward to seeing what they come up with!

Tron Legacy was a poor use of the ingredients available. It had a father with 2 sons (and a daughter), a son with 2 fathers, a character whose goal was to escape the confines of his world and another who for a prank wanted to release software to the world. Plus Dillinger Minor.

The potential is there for an incredible, and relevant story.

But they made Tron Legacy.

Yes, the obvious, yet perfect choice was bringing Daft Punk in for the score and, visually I think Kosinski did a great job though the 3D is, was, will be pointless.

That said, much like the original film, Tron Legacy is flawed but fun. Dumb and pretty but this time with no philosophical ambitions it makes me reach for The Matrix which actually stays with you after you've watched it.

I can't see the sequel doing anything better as they've jumped off from such an awkward point.

I have hopes. The first film was visually stunning (for the time) but with a dreadful story. The second film was visually and audibly stunning with an average story. I see a positive trend.

Bruce Boxleitner must return!! If the movie is called 'Tron' then TRON should be in it. Tron Legacy was awesome, but he was sorely missed by this fan.

This film will survive without Daft Punk.

In fact, they should go for someone else. Daft Punk have done their soundtrack, try someone else now.

They should go for 'Felix Da Housecat' or 'Kavinsky' (Drive).

Skrillex lol no it should be daft punk
