The news drifting in from Walt Disney Pictures today is that Bruce Boxleitner is returning as Alan Bradley in their upcoming sequel to 1982's Tron entitled TR2N. The actor is reportedly at work, reprising his role alongside original cast member Jeff Bridges and new cast members Beau Garrett and Olivia Wilde.

At this time, the plot of TR2N (also known as Tron 2.0), is being kept under wraps. It is known that the film will be a direct sequel to the original, catching up with the original characters some twenty-eight years after Kevin Flynn was sucked into a video game. It is not known at this time how significant a role Boxleitner will play in the new film.
