Cameron Monaghan Joins ‘Tron: Ares’

Cameron Monaghan is leaving a galaxy far, far, away for the Grid!

According to Deadline, the Gotham and Jedi Fallen Survivor star has signed on to Disney’s newest Tron movie, Tron: Ares. Details regarding who Monaghan will be playing are being kept under wraps.

Also leading the cast is Jared Leto (Morbius) Evan Peters (WandaVision) as the film’s villain, Greta Lee (Past Lives), and Jodi Turner-Smith (Queen & Slim).

While the first two Tron movies were largely set inside the world of computers and programs, the script for Ares, written by Jesse Wigutow and Jack Thorne, is said to focus on the emergence of a sentient program that crosses over into the human world that is not ready for contact.

Leto, who has been attached to the project for a few years already, is Ares, the manifestation of the program, with Lee starring as a video game programmer and tech company CEO who has to go on the run in order to protect her world-changing technology.

Joachim Running, who is no stranger to Disney, having directed Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, is on board to direct. While Ares is a sequel to Tron: Legacy, it is unknown if any characters from that film will return any capacity.
