Looks like Disney is wasting no time getting the cast and production team for the upcoming Tron sequel. In addition to the news that Jesse Wigutow had been tapped to write the project, Next Movie is reporting that Tron: Legacy's Garrett Hedlund has confirmed he will reprise his role as Sam Flynn in the upcoming film. 

"Disney's very excited," he said at a press conference to promote his new film, On the Road. "That's about that. You know, yeah, I'm very excited, Disney's very excited." So, there's that. Not much is really known about the plot of the film, and we'll probably have to wait a long while before we know anything: Production should begin some time in 2014.

Unless the world ends next week, in which case we'll never know. Dark thoughts.
