PRESS RELEASE: Brad Bird's TOMORROWLAND Begins Shooting; New Plot Synopsis Released

Brad Bird won't be back to helm the follow-up to Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, but his next movie is easily as - if not more - exciting! Tomorrowland has started filming in Vancouver today and we have a new plot synopsis along with the official press release. Check it out!

Principal photography has begun on Disney’s mystery adventure “Tomorrowland,” starring two-time Academy AwardÒ winner George Clooney (“Michael Clayton,” “Syriana”), Hugh Laurie (“Monsters vs. Aliens,” “Arthur Christmas”), Britt Robertson (“Under The Dome”), Raffey Cassidy (“Dark Shadows,” “Snow White and the Huntsman”) and Thomas Robinson (“The Switch”). The film is directed, produced and co-written by two-time Oscar® winner Brad Bird (“Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol,” “The Incredibles”). Damon Lindelof (“Star Trek Into Darkness,” “Prometheus”) and Jeffrey Chernov (“Star Trek,” “Star Trek Into Darkness,” “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol”) are also producers. The screenplay is written by Brad Bird and Damon Lindelof from a story by Lindelof & Jeff Jensen and Brad Bird.

Jeff Jensen and John Walker (“The Incredibles”) will executive produce with Bernard Bellew (“Les Misérables,” “28 Weeks Later”) and Tom Peitzman, VFX producer (“Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol,” “Alice in Wonderland”) serving as co-producers.

Bound by a shared destiny, a bright, optimistic teen bursting with scientific curiosity and a former boy-genius inventor jaded by disillusionment 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.”

Bird has gathered a great team behind the lens with Oscar® winning director of photography Claudio Miranda (“Life of Pi,” “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”), production designer Scott Chambliss (“Star Trek,” “Star Trek Into Darkness,” “Cowboys & Aliens”), Oscar® nominated costume designer Jeffrey Kurland (“Inception,” “Ocean’s Eleven”) and Academy Award®-winning editor Walter Murch (“The English Patient,” “Cold Mountain”).

“Tomorrowland” will be released through Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures on December 12, 2014.

Still not as horrid as the new Divergent trailer.

This or interstellar?

I say Nolan
Chewtoy - 8/26/2013, 10:50 AM
Brad Bird is a far better story teller than Nolan. I'm not entirely sure what that's an issue here though, as I really don't get a connection between the two projects.

Incredibles 2 puh-leeeeaaaaasssee!?
Chaplin - 8/26/2013, 10:54 AM
Sounds like Star Trek Meets LOST. I love it!

@Omarvls Do you enjoy the taste of Nolan's dick that much that you'll just randomly bring up Interstellar for no reason? Piss off

I can't wait for this. Brad Bird has made some amazing animations and MI4 was great.

I'm sorry, story and writing by Damon Lindelof? I will definitely pass on this. Everything that guy touches turns to shit.
fettastic - 8/26/2013, 11:20 AM
This doesn't do anything to entice me. The speculation that appears now to be completely off sounded more interesting.
pintoman - 8/26/2013, 11:25 AM
Yea, having Damon Lindelof makes me want to just forget this. Plus, I don't want a back story for Disneyland's Tomorrowland. I just want walking into the land to feel like the future again. Instead of the Jules Verne era.

But...Brad Bird is involved. So hopefully he'll know when to tell Lindelof to shut up.
thewonderer - 8/26/2013, 11:29 AM
If you pass on anything Brad Bird, you're a [frick]ing moron.

Ethan Kruger could be writing and I couldnt care less.

It's Brad Bird, your missing a masterpiece

@thalidomide according to legends, the M in MTV stood for music. Scientists to this day have no clue as to what caused the extinction.

I can see this being as shitty as that Journey to the Center of the Earth movie with Brendan Fraser.
wcwpoet - 8/26/2013, 12:10 PM
With Bird & Clooney involved that's worth checking out.

I like a lot of Bird's work, but Damon Lindelof is writing. Either Bird is the world's best turd polisher or this will suck.

Brad Bird is amazing. He needs to do a DCCU.
