Since Brad Bird’s ‘Tomorrowland’ was announced, a massive shroud of mystery has surrounded it. The director and screenwriter Damon Lindelof have been extremely vague while discussing the project, but we do know for sure that it’s a sci-fi adventure starring George Clooney, Hugh Laurie, Raffey Cassidy, and Britt Robinson that is connected in some way to the Disneyland theme park. We also know that the viral marketing campaign for the film called The Optimist is probably the most intricate and interactive experience that Disney has ever rolled out to promote a movie. Aside from that, everything is still very much a secret, but chances are that we’ll be learning more soon since production has begun in Canada a few days ago according to this tweet from Lindelof:

Despite cameras preparing to roll, it appears that the casting process isn’t completely finished yet. Deadline is reporting that Judy Greer is currently in talks to join ‘Tomorrowland’ in an undisclosed role. If she does end up taking the job, this will be her third film with Clooney, who she appeared alongside in 1999’s ‘Three Kings’ and 2011’s ‘The Descendents’.
Though not confirmed by the studio or the filmmakers, here’s the rumored synopsis for the film:
“A teenage girl, a genius middle-aged man (who was kicked out of Tomorrowland) and a pre-pubescent girl robot attempt to get to and unravel what happened to Tomorrowland, which exists in an alternative dimension, in order to save Earth.”
‘Tomorrowland’ starring George Clooney, Hugh Laurie, Raffey Cassidy, Thomas Robinson, and Britt Robertson is scheduled for release on December 12, 2014.
