Brad Bird's 1952 is Now Tomorrowland

by SuperHeroHype

January 28, 2013

It was rumored late last year that George Clooney was in talks to headline Brad Bird's mysterious Walt Disney Pictures sci-fi project, known only as 1952. Today, the studio has confirmed that Clooney is set to star and they've revealed the official title: Tomorrowland!

Tomorrowland is written by Damon Lindelof and Bird from a concept by Lindelof and Jeff Jensen. Lindelof (Star Trek, "LOST," Prometheus) will produce and Bird (The Incredibles, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol) will produce and direct.

Tomorrowland is set for release on December 19, 2014. Although there's not yet an official synopsis, Bird teased the project with the below photo last week on his Twitter account:

Source: ComingSoon

February 13, 2013

Hugh Laurie ("House M.D.") is in talks to play the villain in director Brad Bird and co-writer Damon Lindelof's Tomorrowland (previously 1952), says The Hollywood Reporter.

He would be joining George Clooney in the secretive project at Disney. The plot of the movie has been kept under wraps but is described "as being in the vein of Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Steven Spielberg’s 1978 movie about a man searching for extra-terrestrials on Earth."

Tomorrowland is scheduled for a December 19, 2014 release. Lindelof (Prometheus, "LOST") wrote the script with Jeff Jensen.

Bird's directing credits include Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, Ratatouille, The Incredibles and The Iron Giant.

by SuperHeroHype

October 04, 2013

Though director Brad Bird says production on his new movie Tomorrowland has been threatened by the US government shutdown (presumably because of the NASA site closings), there's been a new addition to the cast anyway. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kathryn Hahn of Anchorman and Step Brothers fame, has been cast in the film as "Ursula" who is described as a "funny, scene-stealing role."

Currently filming in Vancouver, Tomorrowland stars George Clooney, Hugh Laurie, Britt Robertson, Raffey Cassidy and Thomas Robinson. Bird co-wrote the screenplay with Damon Lindelof.

George Clooney Talks Brad Bird’s Tomorrowland

SuperHeroHype

Jan 28, 2014

Little is still known about Brad Bird's upcoming film Tomorrowland. Even with the various set photos and viral websites it's a difficult puzzle to piece together, and it doesn't help that no one is talking. Taking part in an AMA on Reddit, George Clooney, one of the stars of the film, was asked about working on the project and offered a few more clues.

"I literally have a harness on and I’ve been hanging from 30 ft from 4 different blue screens and literally as we are talking they are all staring at me because I had to get down to do this. I have all these wire hanging off of me….Brad is a really good guy with a wild imagination. If I don’t screw it up it will be a great film. You have to be careful what you say because everything is top secret, so I don't want to ruin it by telling you that everyone dies in the end."

Set to hit theaters on May 22, 2015, the Disney mystery adventure also stars Hugh Laurie, Britt Robertson, Raffey Cassidy, Thomas Robinson and Kathryn Hahn. Bound by a shared destiny, a bright, optimistic teen bursting with scientific curiosity and a former boy-genius inventor jaded by disillusionment embark on a danger-filled mission to unearth the secrets of an enigmatic place somewhere in time and space that exists in their collective memory as "Tomorrowland."
