Everything You Know About Tron 2 Is Wrong

It's never a good sign when the name of your movie reads like a LOLcat. Rumors have it that TR2N (or Tron 2, as the rest of the world has been calling it) is renaming itself to the even more ghastly TRZ. And there are some new rumors about what happens in the Jeff Bridges-starring sequel.


Production Weekly has a supposed synopsis from the new Tron, but I'm going to take it was a massive grain of salt, since it's still pretty early:

“After being transported into the surreal landscape of a mainframe computer to destroy an intruder, a programmer finds himself allied with the leader of a rebellion against a corrupt cyber-entity.”

If you read between the lines, it sounds like they're bringing in a programmer to save an endangered computer, in a cyber-war scenario and maybe, just maybe, Bridges is the bad guy. I think this would actually work, as he was sporting a big time bad guy beard in the special teaser trailer aired at Comic Con. Sounds interesting, but the most important thing Disney needs to do is to hook new audience members and I don't know if this film is going to do it with a title like TRZ.

I really hope this is just an unfounded rumor. TRZ is a terrible, terrible rename. And just because Bridges sports a beard doesn't mean he's gotta be evil. I mean, evil-bearded villain is such a bad cliche, that I'd hope the sequel to one of the most commendable movies of all time is above.
