Actress Olivia Wilde spills the beans that in addition to scoring the music, the electronic music duo will also make an appearance in the 'Tron' sequel.
Daft Punk will contribute more than scoring the original music for "Tron Legacy" as their cameo appearance in the movie has been recently revealed. Bringing up the news to the surface was Olivia Wilde, who will be seen as Kevin's loyal confidant named Cora in the "Tron" sequel. To MTV News, she simply said, "They were in the movie."
Although revealing the cameo appearance, the depicter of Thirteen in "House M.D." didn't offer further details, especially on what role the duo known for their robot personas will take on. She did note, however, that Disney plans to feature them in future promotional efforts. She said, "There's some ideas in the works about how to incorporate them into a Comic-Con event."
Back in March, it was announced that Daft Punk have been signed to write the original music score for this movie. While both members, Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter, have worked in film before, this project will be their first complete feature film score.
"Tron Legacy" follows Sam Flynn as he investigates the disappearance of his father Kevin Flynn. Pulled into the same world of fierce programs and gladiatorial games where his father has been living for 25 years, he manages to find Kevin. Now, he has to join forces with Kevin and Cora on a life-and-death journey across a visually-stunning cyber universe that has become far more advanced and exceedingly dangerous.
Starring Jeff Bridges and Garrett Hedlund as the father and son duo, this sequel movie will be directed by Joseph Kosinski and supported by Beau Garrett and Bruce Boxleitner. The screenplay is written by Adam Horowitz, Richard Jefferies and Edward Kitsis. Walt Disney Pictures will unleash this movie in U.S. theaters on December 17, 2010.
