Plot Synopsis Revealed for Brad Bird's TOMORROWLAND!

 

Hey guys! Horrorella here...

After a long wait and much speculation (including a mysterious panel at D23), we finally have some official info about Brad Bird's (THE IRON GIANT, THE INCREDIBLES, MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: GHOST PROTOCOL) new film, TOMORROWLAND.

 

 

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.”

Production is officially underway in Vancouver. Bird co-wrote the screenplay with Damon Lindelof, and will be directing the film. George Clooney will star as the inventor, and Britt Robertson (UNDER THE DOME) will play the role of the teen, with Hugh Laurie cast in the role of the film's villain.

The full press release is below. TOMORROWLAND is filming now, and is slated for release December 12th, 2014. I will be interested to learn more about the film as production continues - it sounds like it could be interesting. What do you guys think?
