Sometimes you really want something. You wait and wait and wait for it to happen. And then one day, you realize that life is too short and say “fuck it.” This is where Bruce Boxleitner is right now with Tron 3.
A longtime champion of the Tron franchise, Boxleitner recently did an interview with /Film in which he had this to say:
“I don’t really care anymore,” Bradley said when I asked him if he thought TRON 3 might get revived down the road. “I’m done with it. I’ve moved on. I hate to say that but it’s been too up and down for me. I would rather not just keep going. I don’t want to repeat my career anymore. That’d be like, ‘Let’s reboot Scarecrow and Mrs. King.’ No, I’m not interested. Or Babylon 5."
Ouch. That is a bad sign. While we no longer have a Tron 3 in our future, if they ever did get another one on track, it would have to somehow survive without its number one most important element. And no one wants to see that.
Hollywood needs to take note. When you keep your actors dangling on the line too long, their hearts begin to grow cold and callused. How can you possibly sleep at night after robbing so many of their hopes and dreams?
