For months, Disney has kept the upcoming George Clooney-starring film “1952” under wraps, but the mysterious film has now been given a new name, a logline and a new co-star for Clooney.
Disney announced this week that the movie will now be called “Tomorrowland” and released the first real details about the plot for the project, Zap2it reports.
“In the film, a high school girl with an unconventional understanding of technology is launched on a journey to reclaim her future,” the Walt Disney Studios press release reads.
Britt Robertson, who also stars in CBS’s summer drama “Under the Dome,” has been cast to play the high school girl in question opposite Clooney, whose role has not yet been revealed.
The film will be produced by Damon Lindelof (“Star Trek,” “Lost”) and has been called a science fiction film “in the vein of ‘Close Encounters of the Third Kind.’”
Clooney is on somewhat of a sci-fi streak of late, having just filmed “Gravity” with Sandra Bullock, which takes place in space.
“Tomorrowland” is set for release on December 12, 2014.
