‘Tomorrowland’ Eyes Britt Robertson and Naomi Scott for the Female Lead

Britt Robertson is one of the finalists for the lead in TomorrowlandBritt Robertson (The Secret Circle, Under the Dome) and Naomi Scott (Terra Nova) are the two finalists for the lead role in Tomorrowland. The studio has reportedly spent months searching for the right actress, with Shailene Woodley considered as an early candidate.

Both actresses will undergo a full hair and makeup test in Vancouver next month for the role of Casey Newton, described as a rebellious teenage girl 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. The Casey Newton part has been described as a "star-making" opportunity, for whoever is chosen. Hugh Laurie has already been cast as the villain, with Raffey Cassidy playing a child robot who joins Casey and Frank on their journey.

Brad Bird is directing Tomorrowland from a screenplay by Damon Lindelof and Jeff Jensen. It isn't known when production may begin, but Disney has already set a December 12, 2014 release date.

Tomorrowland was released May 22nd, 2015.
