SIf you had told me that someone really was making a sequel to compu-nerd classic—and greatest arcade game ever—Tron, I would have told you stop lying, liar! But, whoa, here is Jeff Bridges saying it's happening and he's part of it and he's psyched! "Yeah, that's another unique, wild experience that was too good to turn down," he says. "Engaging in that world again feels just like it did all that time ago. Basically, I'm still a child, I love being childlike, and here was another chance to play with these crazy toys. And the cutting-edge technology makes it exciting. Doing the teaser trailer for Comic-Con, I had my first experience of motion capture. And that's turning the industry on its head. It's amazing being part of that." There's such a retro love for Tron. How do you bring it up to date? Well, when we made Tron there was no internet, no cellphones. But now we have motion capture, so I think we'll get a far more successful version of the story, which is someone literally getting sucked into a video game. When we did King Kong in the 70s, one minute you'd have a shot of Rick Baker in this big suit and then you'd cut to this 80ft stiff model, and they looked nothing alike. Compare to that Peter Jackson's King Kong the technology is there and they did a wonderful job. I thought they created a beautiful Kong. So I hope that'll be the same for Tron. I am freaking there!
