Giorgio Moroder — Scarface composer extraordinaire — has revealed that there’s a new Tron videogame on the way, and that he’ll be writing the soundtrack with Electronic Dance Music heavy hitter Skrillex. But does that mean there could finally be another movie on the way?
In a recent interview with Clash Music, the famed music composer revealed that he’d been asked to write the soundtrack for a new videogame for Disney’s Tron. Here’s what he said:
“I'm going to meet Skrillex next week when I'm back. I'm doing the music for a game for Disney's 'Tron'. We have about five themes, electronic stuff and let's see if he's interested in remixing or re-working one of the songs.”
The last time we had a new Tron videogame was five years ago, in 2010, when Tron: Evolution and Tron: Evolution - Battle Grids were released alongside Disney's Tron: Legacy movie, the long-awaited sequel to the 1982 sci-fi classic.
Since we’ve been hearing rumors of a third Tron movie ever since Legacy hit theaters (despite a lukewarm reception from critics), could the fact that Moroder is working on a new soundtrack for a Tron videogame mean that Disney is finally getting ready to start work on the eagerly anticipated sequel? According to Den of Geek, star Bruce Boxleitner said last year that the Tron sequel would be finally moving forward in 2015, but Disney has remained inexplicably mum on the whole subject, leaving fans wanting more.
What do you think of Giorgio Moroder working on the soundtrack for a new Tron videogame? What could it actually mean for a possible third Tron movie?
