Brad Bird’s Tomorrowland is coming together, with George Clooney and Hugh Laurie already set to star, and now THR has revealed another lead role, which has gone to young Raffey Cassidy, who was seen last years as the young Snow White in Snow White and the Huntsman.
The previously rumoured plot description suggested the film is about a teenage girl, a genius middle-aged man and a pre-pubescent girl robot who attempt to get to and unravel what happened to Tomorrowland, which exists in an alternative dimension, in order to save Earth.
THR confirms that Cassidy will play ‘a young girl robot who has been around for decades. Also a key factor: she knows several fighting styles. She has a previous relationship with Clooney’s character, a bitter inventor.’
Hugh Laurie is set to play the villain, who seemingly once threw Clooney’s character out of Tomorrowland. There’s still a lot of secrecy around the project, so expect it to remain fairly mysterious for a while yet.
