UNDER THE DOME Star Britt Robertson Lands Lead in Brad Bird’s TOMORROWLAND Opposite George Clooney

The female lead for director Brad Bird’s secretive upcoming film Tomorrowland has been found at last.  Disney has announced that Under the Dome and Delivery Man actress Britt Robertson has been cast in a lead role in the film, which centers on “a high school girl with an unconventional understanding of technology who is launched on a journey to reclaim her future.”  That’s about as vague a logline as can be, but I’m not complaining; it’s nice to not know every plot beat a year and a half before the movie even hits theaters.

Bird co-wrote Tomorrowland with Damon Lindelof and Jeff Jensen, and the cast also includes George Clooney as the male lead, Hugh Laurie as the antagonist, and supporting turns by Raffey Cassidy and Thomas Robinson.  Production begins very soon, so expect more casting announcements in the coming weeks.  Tomorrowland opens on December 12, 2014.
