Tron: Ares casting

According to reports from The Hollywood Reporter and Variety, Greta Lee and Jodie Turner-Smith have been confirmed as the newest additions to the cast of Disney’s highly anticipated film, “Tron: Ares.” They will join Jared Leto and recently announced Evan Peters in leading roles. While the specifics of Turner-Smith’s character are yet to be revealed, it is known that Lee will portray a tech CEO and video game designer who goes on the run to protect her groundbreaking technology.

Greta Lee comes to the project following her remarkable performance in this year’s blockbuster romantic film, “Past Lives,” which has garnered critical acclaim. Jodie Turner-Smith rose to fame with her breakout role in 2019’s “Queen and Slim,” establishing herself as a rising star in Hollywood. She is also set to appear in the upcoming Star Wars series, “The Acolyte,” alongside Amandla Stenberg and Lee Jung-jae. Turner-Smith has recently been involved in notable projects such as “Murder Mystery 2,” A24’s “After Yang,” “White Noise,” and received an NAACP Image Award nomination for her portrayal of Anne Boleyn in the AMC miniseries.

“Tron: Ares” aims to continue the legacy of the Tron franchise, which began in 1982 with the original film featuring Jeff Bridges as Kevin Flynn, a computer engineer who is transported into the digital world he created and teams up with Tron (Bruce Boxleitner). Initially receiving a lukewarm reception, the film gained a cult following and later experienced success with “Tron Legacy,” where Bridges returned alongside Garrett Hedlund and Olivia Wilde. The plot details for this third installment are currently being kept under wraps.

The production of “Tron: Ares” has faced challenges, but with the addition of more cast members, the project is gaining momentum. Filming is scheduled to commence soon, pending any potential SAG-AFTRA strike. Joachim Rønning, known for directing “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil,” has been tapped to helm the film, while Jesse Wigutow is writing the screenplay. In addition to his starring role, Jared Leto will also serve as a producer.

At present, “Tron: Ares” does not have a confirmed release date. Stay tuned to FilmSweep for further updates on this long-awaited film. In the meantime, check out one of our previous interviews with Jodie Turner-Smith below.
