Disney is slowly putting together its cast for the upcoming third “Tron” film called, “Tron: Ares”, which will star Jared Leto, Evan Peters, Jodie Turner-Smith and Greta Lee.
With just a few hours until the actor’s strike deadline looming, two new actors were revealed for the film. According to Deadline, Sarah Desjardins and Cameron Monaghan have joined the cast of the new film. No details have been revealed about what characters they both will be playing.
Sarah Desjardins has previously starred in Showtimes “Yellowjacket” and Netflix’s “The Night Agent”. She has also appeared in the FX series, “Under The Banner Of Heaven”.
Cameron Monaghan has previously starred in the DC series, “Gotham” and “Shameless”, plus has appeared in both “Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order” video games.
The “Tron” franchise began back in the 1980s and told the story of a software programmer called Kevin, who is dragged into the virtual world where he is pitted against malevolent software. He takes the help of Tron, a security programme that helps him defeat the villain. The film was followed up in 2010 by a sequel called “Tron: Legacy”, which told the story of Sam, who misses his father, a virtual world designer, and enters a virtual space that has become much more dangerous than his father intended. Now, both father and son embark upon a life-and-death journey. The new film will tell the story of Ares, who is a computer program, on a journey from the digital world to that of humans.
Joachim Rønning will direct the third film, and if the actor’s strike doesn’t happen, filming is due to begin in Vancouver in August.
“Tron: Ares” will be executive produced by Sean Bailey and Sam Dickerman. It’s going to be produced by Justin Springer (Tron: Legacy), Leto and his Paradox partner Emma Ludbrook, and Jeffrey Silver.
Both “Tron” movies and the animated series are available to stream on Disney+ now.
