Tron 3 was on its way to a screen near you, but there has been a huge issue, that will delay the release date.
What is it?
The “Tron” franchise is a science fiction series that began with the original film released in 1982. It has since expanded to include additional movies, television series, and other media.
What is the problem with Tron 3 ?
‘Tron 3’ Director has said that over 150 crew members have been laid off as the on-going strikes have shut down production.
Director Joachim Rønning said: “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-AFTRA 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.”
“Tron: Ares,” is set to star Jared Leto, Evan Peters, Greta Lee and Jodie Turner-Smith.
