Brad Bird’s upcoming movie for Disney, Tomorrowland, starts shooting next week, but they’re still finalising the cast, with Deadline reporting that Judy Greer has signed up to star alongside George Clooney, Hugh Laurie, Britt Robertson, and Raffey Cassidy in the movie.
The movie is about a young woman who approaches a cranky inventor named Frank (George Clooney) to unravel the mystery behind Tomorrowland, a world that exists in a parallel dimension to ours. Hugh Laurie has been cast as the villain, with Raffey Cassidy playing a child robot who joins Casey and Frank on their journey. Unfortunately there absolutely no news on how Greer will fit into the movie.
Damon Lindelof (Lost, Prometheus) came up with the script, which is said to be similar in tone to Steven Spielberg’s Close Encounters of the Third Kind, and a December 12th, 2014 release has already been set.
