Tron 3 is now back in action with two intriguing announcements made a few days apart for the franchise's fans.
The director of the third sci-fi movie, Joachim Rønning, claimed in a recent post that filming for the sequel has begun.
Furthermore, a number of publications earlier today announced that Gillian Anderson has joined the cast of Tron 3, joining a star-studded ensemble that already included the likes of Greta Lee, Evan Peters, Jared Leto, and Jodie Turner-Smith.
The official logo for the third film, which is a smart parody of the previous design, was also leaked in Joachim Rønning's post.
The third movie in the series, dubbed Tron: Ares, might come out in late 2025, though that hasn't been confirmed yet.
The most well-known role of Gillian Anderson is perhaps that of FBI Special Agent Dana Scully from The X-Files. She played the same part in follow-up television shows and feature films.
More recently, Anderson gained recognition for her portrayal of the s*x therapist Jean Milburn in the comedy-drama Sex Education on Netflix, where she starred in all four seasons as a key character.
She also made an appearance in the fourth season of the Netflix drama The Crown, playing British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.
A seasoned professional, Anderson began his career with a cameo appearance on Class of '96 and has since gone on to win two Primetime Emmy Awards, two Golden Globe Awards, four Screen Actors Guild Awards, and numerous other honours.
She had already gained a lot of popularity and praise from reviewers on the theatre scene prior to that.
She went on to have a prosperous career in television and movies.
Among her other pieces are Johnny English Reborn, The Turning, Viceroy's House, I'll Follow You Down, Playing by Heart, and How to Lose Friends & Alienate People.
