Bad news as Tron 3 starts filming.....

The long anticipated next film in the Tron franchise was announced with Jared Leto in a lead role but director Joachim Rønning announced on his instagram bad news as Tron 3 starts filming whcih reads as follows….

Today was supposed to be our first day of principal photography on TRON: ARES (a movie subsequently about AI and what it means, and takes, to be human). Instead, we are shut down with over a hundred and fifty people laid off. It’s indefinite, which makes it exponentially harder for everyone. The AMPTP, SAG_AFTAR and WGA need to speed up the negotiating process and not leave the table until it’s done. This is Hollywood. We close deals for breakfast. Why do we suddenly have all the time in the world when every day is so precious? These tactics are extremely frustrating. It’s time for diplomacy so we can get back to work – under conditions that are fair to everybody.

An early synopsis for the film says Tron 3 “showcases Ares, Leto’s computer program, on a journey from the digital world to the human one.” with  the new film purportedly spending more time in the real world. With a script by  Jesse Wigutow and Jack Thorne sources have suggested that the film features a sentient program that crosses over into the human world that is not ready for contact.

That the bad news as Tron 3 starts filming is devastating for so many freelance workers who are now without work for the foreseeable future and its not the only film to shut down production with Gladiator 2 probably being the most high profile but a new Mortal Kombat film has gone the same way as as the film adaptation of Wicked which only had 10 days of its shoot left
