Brad Bird’s 1952 Gets New Title: TOMORROWLAND

Director Brad Bird’s feature film collaboration with screenwriter Damon Lindelof has an intriguing new title.  Previously referred to as 1952, the project (which stars George Clooney) was hatched when Lindelof stumbled across a box in Walt Disney’s personal development lab with the label “1952.”  Lindelof and Bird tweeted pictures of the box’s contents last week, giving us a tease as to what the film’s plot may involve.  Rumors have swirled that the story may have something to do with the creation of a theme park, and that theory has been given a bit more credence today as Disney has announced that 1952 has been retitled Tomorrowland.

Nothing further was revealed, but my interest in this project seems to grow with each new revelation.  Lindelof and Bird are currently working on the script based on an idea by Lindelof and Jeff Jensen, with Bird set to direct and produce.  The two hope to begin production this year in anticipation of the film’s December 19, 2014 release date.
