Good news, programs! Disney has finally started running Tron3movie.exe, to the delight of me and about 500 other Tron nerds. From The Hollywood Reporter:

The sequel to the 2010 reboot Tron: Legacy - called Tron 3 in some quarters - is moving a step forward with Disney in negotiations to hire Jesse Wigutow to pen the latest draft of the script.

Joseph Kosinski, who directed Legacy, is attached to helm this installment, which is being developed with a renewed purpose under Alan Horn, who took the reigns of Disney Studios in June.

Some considered the dark and trippy Legacy - which teamed newcomer Garrett Hedlund with Jeff Bridges, star of the 1982 original Tron - a lukewarm performer when it opened in December 2010. But the film grossed $400 million worldwide, good enough to spark interest in prolonging the franchise. With that foundation and a strong brand, Disney believes it can really go for broke with a new movie.

I'm going to assume "go for broke" means "actually having Tron show up in this one."
