The upcoming part will be directed by Joachim Ronning and fronted by Jared Leto.

"I'm heading off this Saturday to play a part in the third installment of the 'Tron' story. Jared Leto is the star of this third one. I'm really anxious to work with him. I've admired his work," Bridges said.

When reached by Variety, a representative for "The Big Lebowski" star said Bridges taped the episode "a while ago" and had completed his work on "Tron: Ares".

The "Tron" franchise started with the eponymous 1982 film, starring Bridges as Kevin Flynn, a computer programmer and video game developer who is transported inside the software world of a mainframe computer where he interacts with programs in his attempt to escape. The movie was directed by Steven Lisberger.

In 2010, Joseph Kosinski directed the sequel "Tron: Legacy" with Bridges returning as Flynn and also featuring in the role of Clu, his digitally de-aged double in a video game. Garrett Hedlund and Olivia Wilde were the new additions to the cast.

"Tron: Ares" will feature Oscar winner Leto as Ares, the manifestation of a program that becomes sentient and crosses over into the human world.

It's not known whether Bridges will reprise any of his previous "Tron" roles.

The upcoming movie also features Evan Peters, Greta Lee, Gillian Anderson, Jodie Turner-Smith, Hasan Minhaj, Arturo Castro, Cameron Monaghan and Sarah Desjardins.
