Tomorrowland Eyes Hugh Laurie as the Main Villain

Hugh Laurie will become the main villain in Disney's TomorrowlandHouse star Hugh Laurie is in talks to play the primary villain in Disney's secretive sci-fi project Tomorrowland, alongside George Clooney. Naturally, since very little is know about the movie itself, no character details were given.

The story is said to be in the same vein as the 1977 Steven Spielberg classic Close Encounters of the Third Kind, which followed a man searching for extra-terrestrials on Earth.

Nothing has been confirmed in regards to the story, but a report from earlier this month uncovered clues from a "mystery box" that was revealed on director Brad Bird's Twitter page. The box contained a number of items connected to the year 1952, which was previously the movie's working title.

Brad Bird is directing from a screenplay by Damon Lindelof. It isn't known when production will begin.
