"Yeah," Hedlund said when we pressed him for details on his "Tron" participation while doing press in New York ahead of the U.S. release of "On the Road." "Are we gonna break this now?"
"Disney's very excited," he said of the project. "That's about that. You know, yeah, I'm very excited, Disney's very excited."
