REPORT: Tron 3 In Development With Jared Leto, & Daft Punk To Score

It’s been 10 years since Tron: Legacy, seven years since we last heard new music from Daft Punk, but that could all be changing soon as @DRMovieNews1, a reputable source for movie news leaks, reports.

The movie news account claims that Disney has confirmed that ‘Tron 3’ is in development, info that comes from The Dis Insider. Jared Leto is also reportedly in talks to star, and the studio is “hopeful” that Legacy director Joseph Kosinski returns, as well as Daft Punk for the score.

Right now, however, everything about the film is muddled in rumors. The Legacy cast might return, Daft Punk might return, the director might return, it might be a rejuvenation of the cancelled ‘Tron: Ascension’ … nothing is set in stone.

But for a movie that pulled in $400 million at the box office and has had fans begging for a sequel ever since, it’s mindblowing there hasn’t been one yet. Let’s take this with a grain of salt, but we’re still on the edge of our seats.

MORE INFO via @TheDisInsider:

• More of a “sequel” than a “reboot”
• ‘Tron: Legacy’ cast could return
• COULD be a rejuvenation of the cancelled ‘Tron: Ascension’ which saw “The Grid invade the real world” & feature a rumored character named Ares pic.twitter.com/QMQWlTFWS2

Daft Punk Alive Pyramid Named Winner Of LEGO’s “Music to our ears” Contest

Last month, we reported that a father and son duo had entered LEGO’s “Music to Our Ears!” competition with their own imaginative redesign of Daft Punk’s Alive 2007 pyramid stage. Now, the winners have been announced and the pyramid stands on top.

With a total of 2109 fan votes, just 183 more than the second place finisher, Patrick Harboun & his son, who entered the contest under the name RobotRock, were named the winners.

All of the top 9 placers are currently going through Product Reviews. None of them were guaranteed an official design upon winning, but the review is the first step on that process. ”

“As you may already know, all of these 9 entries are currently going through a Product Review regardless of how many votes each entry got! We would love to update you, however we’re still working away and which of these entries (if any) are to be turned into an official product.”

Stay tuned to see if the Daft Punk stage becomes an official LEGO box set!

Dario Argento Insists He’s Still In Talks with Daft Punk to Score His Next Film

We may not be hearing from Daft Punk in their usual form anytime soon — but filmmaker Dario Argento insists he’s in negotiations with the iconic dance duo for an upcoming project.

Argento, known as the “Master of the Thrill” and the “Master of Horror,” recently revealed to Italian publication Repubblica that he hopes to enlist in Daft Punk for the score of his new film Occhiali Neri. While the project probably wouldn’t require the masked DJs to make a hit like “One More Time,” it would be fascinating to hear their perspective in collaboration with Argento.

However, following the news, the producers gave a not-so-optimistic statement — “There has been no agreement nor discussions between both parties.”

But, Argento is persistent — “They haven’t denied it. It was their record label, which I had not talked to. I only spoke to the Daft Punk, and they called me back.”

In another interview, he stated, “It will be up to the record label to decide whether to accept or not. Maybe they are thinking about money matters, I don’t know.”

According to IMDb, the film is in the pre-production stage.

We’ll see about all this…

Daft Punk’s Iconic Alive 2007 Stage Made In LEGO With Chance To Become Official Design

Universal Music Group and the Lego Group have announced a new partnership that will see a whole new suite of products launching next year. Along with the  “Music to Our Ears!” competition, where fans are encouraged to “show off your love of music using LEGO bricks,” certain fan-made designs have a chance to be made into official designs supported and sold by the company.

One father and son duo are taking their love of Daft Punk to the building block world with a full, and quite accurate, recreation of the iconic Alive 2007 stage design. The design is now one of the top 10 entries in the competition.

Patrick Harboun reached out to Your EDM to explain the inspiration behind the design.

To cheer up my 8 year old son during our isolation, we’ve entered a Lego competition about music. We’ve both big Daft Punk fans: I’ve spent my high school years listening to Homework on my Walkman. My son’s favourite song when he was 1 was Get Lucky (actually it was the only song he was willing to listen, although, to keep our sanity and be allowed to listen to other songs in our life, my wife and I eventually managed to extend his appreciation to the whole Daft Punk discography). So we’ve built a set looking like the Alive 2007 pyramid stage.

Not only does the set feature an accurate portrayal of the stage in blocks, it also features functional lights thanks to LEGO Night Mode. The whole design is comprised of 2000 blocks.

The cool part about all this is that UMG also happens to be the label on which Daft Punk released their first three studio albums.

On the partnership, LEGO Group CMO, Julia Goldin says, “We know music is a huge passion for so many children, it has an incredible ability to engage and unite children and their families, just like the LEGO brick. This partnership will see us celebrate the power of merging music and the LEGO System in Play, providing children with a whole new way to creatively express themselves by bringing to life music in their own world, their own way.”

A New Daft Punk Film Score Is Confirmed On The Way

Daft Punk are providing the score to Dario Argento’s new film, Occhiali neri (translated as Black Glasses), confirms the director himself.

Argent, whose films include the widely acclaimed Suspiria and Inferno, spoke to Italian publication La Repubblica and said that the French duo have been longtime fans of his work. They apparently reached out to him when they found out he was working on a new film and said, “We want to work with you.”

Daft Punk famously scored the Tron: Legacy soundtrack in 2010, then released their 2013 album Random Access Memories, and have been quiet ever since, despite many rumors.

The first songs for the score will apparently be sent to Argento “soon,” and he hopes shooting will start in September, given the COVID-19 pandemic.

Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” snags #4 spot on most played songs of the 2010s

You thought we were done with the ‘Top’ lists for the last decade? Think again. BBC Radio 2 just counted down their top 40 most-played songs of the last decade and we bet you can guess at least a few of them with your eyes closed (metaphorically, of course).

“The top 40 most-played songs are the sounds that radio producers and broadcasters have consistently played throughout the last decade and will evoke many memories for all of us,” said Peter Leathem, boss of the music licensing company which compiled the chart.

Six of the songs on the list actually remained from the ’90s including Natalie Imbruglia’s “Torn.” But coming in at #4 is our own electronic darlings Daft Punk with their massive hit, “Get Lucky.”

“Get Lucky” finds itself in good company, sandwiched between Maroon 5 ft. Christina Aguilera, “Moves Like Jagger” at #3 and Justin Timberlake, “Can’t Stop The Feeling!” at #5.

See the top 10 below.

Top 10 most played songs of the 2010s

1. Pharrell Williams, ‘Happy’
2. Adele, ‘Rolling In The Deep’
3. Maroon 5 ft. Christina Aguilera, ‘Moves Like Jagger’
4. Daft Punk ft. Pharrell Williams and Nile Rogers, ‘Get Lucky’

The Weeknd – I Feel It Coming

feat. Daft Punk

Tell me what you really like
Baby I can take my time
We don’t ever have to fight
Just take it step-by-step
I can see it in your eyes
Cause they never tell me lies
I can feel that body shake
And the heat between your legs

You’ve been scared of love and what it did to you
You don’t have to run, I know what you’ve been through
Just a simple touch and it can set you free
We don’t have to rush when you’re alone with me

I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe
I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe
I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe
I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe

You are not the single type
So baby, this the perfect time
I’m just trying to get you high
And faded off this touch
You don’t need a lonely night
So baby, I can make it right
You just got to let me try
To give you what you want

You’ve been scared of love and what it did to you
You don’t have to run, I know what you’ve been through
Just a simple touch and it can set you free
We don’t have to rush when you’re alone with me

I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe
I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe
I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe
I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe
I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe
I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe
I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe
I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe

You’ve been scared of love
And what it did to you
You don’t have to run
I know what you’ve been through
Just a simple touch
And it can set you free
We don’t have to rush
When you’re alone with me

I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe
I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe
I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe
I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe
I know what you feel right now
I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe
I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe
I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe
I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe
I know what you say right now, babe
I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe
I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe
I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe
I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe
I know what you say right now, babe
I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe
I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe
I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe
I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe

I feel it coming, babe
I feel it coming, babe
I feel it coming, babe
I feel it coming, babe
