Disney Taps Familiar Face To Direct 'Tron 3'

Joseph Kosinski's back at the helm.

Walt Disney Pictures' 'Tron 3' has a director: Joseph Kosinski.

Although multiple sources report that Garrett Hedlund will return as Sam Flynn, no stars are attached to the film yet. But with Kosinski, who also helmed 2010's "Tron: Legacy," the visually stunning movie franchise's storyline and cinematography should be seamless moving forward.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the studio has plans to start production for the sequel in Vancouver this fall.

The third installment of "Tron" has been in development since the last project pulled in $400 million at the box office on a $170 million budget.
