Disney tweeted that Michael Sheen will have a role in Tron Legacy.

Speaking of Tron Legacy, director Joseph Kosinski is developing Oblivion, based on his own concept, set in a post-apocalyptic Earth where civilization lives above the clouds and scavengers illegally collect artifacts from the polluted and destroyed surface below, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Producers Marti Noxon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Dawn Parouse Olmstead (Prison Break) are working with director Guillermo del Toro and author Chuck Hogan on a TV adaptation of their vampire book trilogy The Strain, Variety reported.
