But, before anyone gets too excited, it is best if you remember that this is just a rumor at this point...an awesome rumor, but a rumor nonetheless. So even though it may not be the most reliable source, Upcoming Film Scores has announced that the French electronica duo have signed to write and perform the score for the follow-up to the sci-fi classic.
So it would seem that Tron 2 is finally kicking into high gear, now that we finally have more to go on than a few rumored cameos, and various casting announcements. Yesterday, Elisabeth managed to score some plot points from AICN as well as news of yet another title change for the sequel, and I have to tell you; I am right there with Elisabeth when I say that anything would be better than TR2N.
Daft Punk has taken a shot at film scores before, having provided most of the music for an Interstella 5555 anime, and they even directed a film before. Although the film was the nonsensical Electroma, and it didn't feature any of their music, so maybe that one is a wash. But if you are familiar with Daft Punk, then you already know that the guys have a fetish for all things robotic and sci-fi, not to mention that their score just might drag Tron out of the 80's and into the 21st Century.
I'll be keeping my fingers crossed on this one, so stay tuned to Cinematical for the official word.
