Brad Bird‘s Tomorrowland has been the subject of all sorts of rumor and speculation since it was first announced a while back under the title 1952. Heck, for a time, there was even a wild theory going around that it was secretly Star Wars Episode VII. But now the film’s about to take a more concrete shape as production gets under way this week.
And as those cameras prepare to roll, Bird’s rounded up another name for the starry cast. Judy Greer is in negotiations for the mysterious sci-fi pic, which also features George Clooney, Hugh Laurie, Raffey Cassidy, and Britt Robinson. Hit the jump for the latest updates on the project.

A few film creators are working overtime to ensure that their upcoming projects stay as secret as possible. Christopher Nolan and his cinematographer/protege director Wally Pfister are one such team, and JJ Abrams and Damon Lindelof are another. Accordingly, Brad Bird‘s next film, Tomorrowland, co-scripted by Lindelof (with Jeff Jensen), is a project about which we know relatively little.
We know that Tomorrowland is inspired in part by artifacts and ideas from Walt Disney. And we’ve heard that it has some similarity, if only in tone, to Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Lindelof has said that aliens aren’t a big factor, and we know that George Clooney plays the lead and Hugh Laurie the antagonist. And we had heard a plot description that may or may not have been true.
Now, a bit of casting news seems to confirm the plot.
The news is that Raffey Cassidy, the actress who played a young Snow White in Snow White and the Huntsman, has been cast in an important Tomorrowland role. The specifics of that role give away something big about the film, however, and so we’ll run down the details after the break. Potential spoilers follow. Read More »
