Now that Tron: Legacy star Garrett Hedlund is nearly a lock for the Kenanda role, Twitch is reporting that Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight) has been offered the role of Colonel while Helena Bonham Carter (Dark Shadows) has been offered Lady Miyako.
To be clear, an offer can be refused by the stars and their representatives. We’ll report back with anything officially signed.
“Set in New Manhattan, the cyberpunk sci-fi epic follows the leader of a biker gang who must save his friend, discovered with potentially destructive psychokinetic abilities, from government medical experiments.”
After a series of false starts Jaume Collet-Serra (House of Wax, Orphan, Unknown) will direct. Pictured: Helena Bonham-Carter
