Disney Retitles Mysterious George Clooney-Brad Bird Film 'Tomorrowland'
The film, co-written by Damon Lindelof and director Brad Bird, initially was titled "1952" and is due for a 2014 release.
New details about Brad Bird's new Disney film only deepen its mystery.
Walt Disney Pictures announced Monday that the live-action sci-fi film known as 1952 has been retitled Tomorrowland, offering a potential hint at its subject matter. The film now shares a name with the section of Disneyland, which was part of the theme park's launch in 1955. George Clooney will star in the film, which was co-written by Bird and Damon Lindelof (Prometheus, Lost).
The film is slated for a Dec. 19, 2014, release.
Disney has long worked to create more films out of its iconic rides; Pirates of the Carribean, now heading to its fifth installment, has become a multi-billion dollar franchise, while Guillermo del Toro is working on a second version of the Haunted Mansion film, the first of which came out in 2003. In 2011, Disney moved forward with development on a film called The Hill, which is to be based on the Fantasyland mountain ride the Matterhorn, which opened in 1959.
