In welcome news for fans of pondering philosophical techno-babble interspersed with the occasional neon Frisbee thrown at their face, Disney has made another serious stride toward producing a sequel to 2010's Tron: Legacy by hiring another new writer, Jesse Wigutow. A third film in the reinvigorated, if still slightly drowsy franchise has been discussed since before Tron: Legacy even premiered, while its "Insert-NewWriter" subroutine has been running ever since. Most recently, Eight Below writer David DiGilio was hired to turn his "Paul Walker in a frozen wasteland" story-crafting skills toward putting another action sort-of-star adrift in a cold and unforgiving landscape, and now it's Wigutow's turn to find a way to further Garrett Hedlund's journey through circuit city.

With his work on remakes of The Crow and The Osterman Weekend¬†as well as Disney's¬†Peter And The Starcatchers, Wigutow is definitely familiar with mining older franchises for acceptably new angles, making him a logical studio choice to draft a new program to run its various merchandising variables. Earlier this year, Tron: Legacy writers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis said that Tron 3‚ÄĒas it's currently being referred to, because Threeon¬†sounds silly‚ÄĒwill explore "the definition of life and death in the digital realm," shortly before throwing a neon Frisbee in your face.
