Disney has hired Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, the LOST writers/executive producers who worked on Tron Legacy, to begin writing a sequel to the studio’s upcoming sci-fi film:
No deals have been made with “Legacy” director Joseph Kosinski or cast members to return, though options were placed in the original deals, and Disney surely would hope to reunite all the elements if “Legacy” proves to be a hit. Also needing to be figured out is who would produce a sequel. Sean Bailey, a producer on “Legacy,” is now Disney’s president of production.
Tron Legacy is scheduled to hit conventional, 3D and IMAX theaters on December 17, 2010.
