Tim McGraw Returning to Big Screen in Disney's 'Tomorrowland'
Starring George Clooney and directed by Brad Bird ("The Iron Giant," "Ratatouille"), the movie marks the country singer's ninth major role.
Tim McGraw, no stranger to the movie camera, will begin shooting a new film in the coming days.
Billboard has learned that the Big Machine recording artist will be a part of the upcoming Disney production Tomorrowland. Starring George Clooney and directed by Brad Bird ("The Iron Giant," "Ratatouille"), the movie is tentatively scheduled to hit theaters in late 2014.
According to Disney, the film centers on a bright teen (Britt Robertson) and a "former boy-genius inventor" (Clooney) as they 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."
The film, which begins shooting next week in Vancouver, will be McGraw’s ninth. He first went before the big screen cameras in 2004 with Black Cloud, as well as Friday Night Lights, for which he won rave reviews for the role of Charles Billingsley. Other film highlights for the singer include The Blind Side, Four Christmases and Country Strong. His most recent foray into making movies was 2011’s Dirty Girl, starring Juno Temple and featuring fellow country singer-turned-actor Dwight Yoakam.
McGraw is currently No. 12 on the Hot Country Songs chart with his single "Southern Girl."
