Brad Bird’s ’1952′ Project Officially Titled ‘Tomorrowland’

Brad Bird and George Clooney‘s mysterious ’1952′ project over at Disney now has an official title: ‘Tomorrowland.’

Disney has released a statement touting the title of that mysterious ’1952′ project Brad Bird is directing. The title of the film is now officially ‘Tomorrowland,’ which many of you will recognize as the name of one of the many themed sections of Disney parks across the world. Tomorrowland in particular focuses on visions of the future — make of that what you will. (Interestingly enough, Walt Disney started the Imagineers studio in 1952 to help develop the Disney attraction…Tomorrowland.)

The project is being written by Damon Lindelof and stars Clooney but details have been kept pretty tight — we only really know that it’s supposedly about a man who comes into contact with aliens. (Though Lindelof tweets: “We won’t tell you what it’s about (yet), but we will tell you what it’s NOT about.  And that would be ALIENS.” So perhaps early reports that aliens would be part of the plot were incorrect?) Filming is set to start later this year with a December 19, 2014 release date lined up.

Lindelof recently tweeted an image of a box labeled “1952,” and the contents inside included old photos, records, and books. That doesn’t give us much to go on, and the press release from Disney is also absent of any plot details. Lindelof is notoriously secretive about his projects, just like his ‘Lost’ co-creator JJ Abrams, so we probably won’t know much about this project until Lindelof and Bird want us to.
