Disney to make “Tomorrowland” movie starring George Clooney, previously known as “1952”

in Disney, Movies

The Walt Disney Studios has announced that its live-action release previously known as “1952” will be titled “Tomorrowland.” The film will be released domestically on December 19, 2014. George Clooney (The Descendants) is set to star.

“Tomorrowland” is written by Damon Lindelof and Brad 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.

It’s not clear how much the upcoming film will relate, if at all, to the Tomorrowland of Disney theme parks worldwide, but Bird and Lindelof did recently tweet photos of a box dated “1952” full of retro items that reportedly inspired the film, including photos of Walt Disney:

From this Disney Parks Blog post, it’s clear the “box” is just the beginning of an elaborate promotional marketing scheme surrounding this film, stated as being linked to Walt Disney Imagineering, but hinting at more details to come.

UPDATE (2/4/13): D23: The Official Disney Fan Club called upon the Walt Disney Archives’ director Becky Cline to examine the box’s contents, adding a few more details about each of the items in the box – but not much else about the film itself.

    Wait a second wasn’t 1952 when Walt Disney first proposed Disneyland, so could this movie be about Walt building Disneyland?

      Does anyone know if Imagineering, WDI or Retlaw (Walter spelled backwards) plays into this film?
      “Tomorrow’s Realm” is mentioned here:

    Chris, that’s certainly what I’m hoping for!

    Does this mean George will be sporting a ‘stache? Haven’t seen that since “O Brother, Where Art Thou.”
