    Olivia Wilde, Beau Garrett Join Tron 2.0 - Sequel to 1982 Disney flick [an error occurred while processing this directive]

    Actresses Olivia Wilde and Beau Garrett have signed on to star in Tron 2.0, the much-anticipated sequel to Tron, the 1982 cult classic, video game-themed film from Disney.

    Joseph Kosinski is directing the sequel, which is being touted as the story's "next chapter." The original film is about a programmer who physically enters a computer and is forced to fight in the games that he helped create. The film was well-known for its then-groundbreaking special effects and its sci-fi battles.

    Disney hasn't revealed any specific plot details, although it has been said that Wilde will play a virtual world employee who fights the Master Control Program, the intelligence agency nemesis in the original. Producers are currently screentesting actors for the male lead. A spring shoot is being planned.
