Disney Casts Lead in Insanely Overbudgeted 'Tron' SequelS

After flirting with actors like Ryan Gosling and Chris Pine, Disney has cast Four Brothers star Garrett Hedlund as the lead in Tron, the sequel to...Tron.

"Hedlund has been considered one of those actors that is on the cusp within the industry, though without much of a profile in middle America," said THR in their casting scoop. "Starring in a $150 million effects-intensive feature could change that." Yes, WHAT? $150 million dollars for Tron, the sequel to Tron? We're assuming that $80 million of that is going toward the actual movie, and the other $70 million will be set aside to buy each moviegoer a Madball and Commodore 64. [THR]
