Looks like Tron:Legacy isn't the only sequel to arrive 27 years later. Tron opened in 1982 along with The Dark Crystal, and while Tron: Legacy will enter theaters first, Dark Crystal is also getting a second installment, also in 3-D.
Collider reports that The Jim Henson Company will head to Australia to shoot the sequel, Power of the Dark Crystal. The movie will be one of the biggest projects to be produced in the country. Stepping in for director Frank Oz will be Australian sibling directors Peter Spierig and Michael Spierig, whose most recent movie was the vampire flick Daybreakers. Another Australian, Craig Pearce (Moulin Rouge) wrote the screenplay based on an original script by Annette Duffy and David Odell. more details on the remake and its plot >>
