Jodie Turner-Smith and Greta Lee has joined the cast of 'Tron: Ares', alongside Jared Leto, Evan Peters and Greta Lee.
Joachim Ronning will direct the third 'Tron' instalment from a script by Jesse Wigutow and Jack Thorne.
Jared Leto will play Ares, the manifestation of a programme that becomes sentient and crosses over into the human world, with Lee as a video game programmer and tech company CEO who aims to protect her world-changing technology.
Additional plot details, including specifics of Turner-Smith's role, are being kept under wraps. Production on the film is set for August.
Jodie Turner-Smith will next be seen in "Bad Monkey", appearing opposite Vince Vaughn in the Apple TV+ series based on Carl Hiaasen’s 2013 novel, and recently wrapped production on "Star Wars: The Acolyte" for Disney+.
Turner-Smith joins the "Tron" franchise as the long-running sci-fi adventure’s legacy continues. The original film, starring Jeff Bridges, debuted in 1982 and flopped at the box office despite its groundbreaking innovations in digital visual effects. Over time, "Tron" developed a cult following, leading to the 2010 sequel "Tron: Legacy", starring Bridges, Garrett Hedlund and Olivia Wilde and helmed by Joseph Kosinski ("Top Gun: Maverick") in his directorial debut.
