According to the Hollywood Reporter, Disney is in final talks with commercial director Joseph Kosinski to develop and direct the next chapter of Tron.  Yep, this Tron.  If you're not excited, you're not retarded.  No word on whether "Tron Man" here will be in any way involved. 

The original, about a computer programr thrust into a computer and forced to fight in games he helped create, is remembered for its sci-fi gladiator-style battles and groundbreaking special effects. It was the first movie to use computer-generated images instead of models and other optical effects in conjunction with live action.

In the new version George Lucas finds out that Jar-Jar Binks has come to life and is banging his daughter.  Okay, I made that up, but who wants to bet it's less stupid than whatever these assholes come up with? This dude is getting work based on stuff like this.
