Tron Sequel to Get Frost-ed
05.05.09 by Ryan
Michael Sheen, the actor who portrayed the first half of Frost/Nixon, may be playing the villain in the upcoming Tron sequel. SlashFilm reports that Sheen subtly revealed his casting via his Twitter account where he mentioned that he would be acting in a "mystery film" where he would play a character that is "in fact not a person at all." Then Sheen asked his 7,000+ followers to vote on their favorite Jeff Bridges movie and remarked that he was "personally very happy to see so many Tron fans."
Next, Sheen said he was off to Vancouver, coincidentally the shooting site of the Tron sequel (production photos have been popping up since last month). When someone pointed this out to Sheen, he responded that "without giving too much away, I already knew."
Did we say "subtle" earlier? We take it back.
The Tron sequel arrives in theaters in 2011, and will also be available in digital 3D.
Michael Sheen will also star as one of the vampires in this little movie called New Moon, opening in November.
