More exciting news from Disney: Olivia Wilde and Garrett Hedlund, the two headliners from 2010's TRON: Legacy, will be teaming up once again to star in the yet-to-be-officially-named TRON 3according to The Hollywood Reporter.

TRON: Legacy  was Disney's follow-up to their cult-classic 1982 film TRON, which also starred veteran actor Jeff Bridges. At the time, TRON  had only grossed around $33 million in the domestic box office.

In contrast, Legacy  earned over $172 million domestically as well as $228 million overseas, highlighting the movie's huge image in popular culture and art. TRON 3 easily taps into this market and appears to be a safe bet for a considerably high box office, especially with the news that Wilde and Hedlund will return.

Also set to return is Legacy director Joseph Kosinsky and producer Justin Springer.

Disney has reportedly been planning TRON 3  since shortly after the release of Legacy. The movie is slated for a 2017 premiere.

Hopefully Daft Punk comes back, too.
