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 Damon Lindelof & Jeff Jensen and Brad Bird.
Jeff Jensen and John Walker (The Incredibles) will executive produce with Bernard Bellew (Les Miserables, 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.
