Disney movie bosses shelve Tron 3

Disney executives have reportedly shelved plans to develop a third Tron film.

Olivia Wilde and Garrett Hedlund signed on for a follow-up to 2010's Tron: Legacy earlier this year (15), while producers were also looking to recruit Jared Leto and Olivia Munn for Tron 3.

However, studio bosses have since decided to halt the project, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Tron 3 had been scheduled to begin production later this year (15) in Canada, with Joseph Kosinski returning as director.

Tron: Legacy was the sequel to 1982's Tron, about a computer game that comes to life.

The original was a flop at the cinema but became a cult movie; the sequel grossed $400 million worldwide.
