There were earlier rumors that the sequel to TRON Legacy might have begun filming in 2014, which turned out not to be true. Now, a new rumor suggests TRON 3 might finally begin filming in October 2015.
The source of the rumor, started here:
I've archived the tweet, just in case it gets deleted. But I won't get too excited, until this is confirmed by an official source.
The possible sequel title may be TRON: Ascension.
Search this page for it (has also been archived in case of deletion):
Thanks to ProfPumpkin and spillwaybrain on Reddit for the tips.
March 10th, 2015 UPDATE: The site Van City Buzz has posted an article about the possibility of TRON Ascension filming in October 2015.
While this lends a bit of further credibility to the rumor with the site likely thinking they have a strong case that justifies publishing the story the source quoted in this article is Lindsay Barker, who is the same person that wrote the earlier tweet, which started all this speculation.

However, we also have an article from the site Badass Digest, where the author claims to have a "trusted source" that TRON 3 has been greenlit and Joseph Kosinski is indeed returning as director.
Thanks to @Employee_427 (aka Neo) on Twitter for sending me the news about the Badass Digest story.
And now Slashfilm has posted an article, seemingly corroborating Badass Digest's "source" that TRON 3 is a go, and Kosinski is returning. They also mention that they're reaching out to Disney for an official statement.
Thanks to Auric on TRON-Sector for the news!
I received an interesting tweet from actor @Alex_Sanon on Twitter, suggesting he will be in the rumored TRON 3, based on his Twitter account's history of tweets. I've archived his tweet, just in case it gets deleted.
March 14th, 2015 UPDATE: Both Bruce Boxleitner TRON himself and The Hollywood Reporter, state that TRON 3 aka TRON Ascension has still not officially been greenlit.
I also suggest everyone reads spillwaybrain's article for some more in-depth analysis on the rumor, and why it should be treated with cautious optimism.
