Late last year there was a rumor 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.
