Tron: Ascension has been Cancelled

Well this is rather disappointing news; I enjoyed Tron: Legacy and consider its music score by Daft Punk one of the all-time greats.

This movie would star Jason Statham, Mark Wahlberg, Edward Norton, Charlize Theron, Seth Green and Donald Sutherland.

The Transporter Trilogy made Jason Statham a household name with action fans; as I’ve said previously they came along during a quiet period for the genre. It was shortly after 9/11 and audiences were more interested in looking for an escape from grim realities and The Transporter hit the right spot. Sunny climates, fast cars, […]
