Elijah Wood is joining the Tron franchise after signing up to voice a character in an animated TV spin-off.
The 1982 science fiction classic was rebooted with a big screen sequel, with the original film's star Jeff Bridges reprising his role as the software engineer who created the arcade game universe.
Tron: Legacy has proved popular with film fans, grossing more than $165 million worldwide since its release earlier this month, and now it has been revealed the sequel will be followed by a TV show featuring the voice of Wood.
Tron: Legacy screenwriter Adam Horowitz tells Boxofficemagazine.com, "There's a 10-part micro series that will premiere next summer... We've hired an incredible team... We hesitate to tell too much just yet, but it will fill in the blanks of some things, and also explore some new areas as well... Bruce Boxleitner is in it, Elijah Wood, Linda Moore, Paul Reubens, Lance Henriksen. I mean, we've got a really cool group of actors."
