Brad Bird and Damon Lindelof's '1952' Now Titled 'Tomorrowland'
Brad Bird and Damon Lindelof have been collaborating on a mystery project for some time now, and while the fact that these two are working together should be reason enough to get excited, fans have still been picking apart clues trying to figure out what the movie is about. It's been going by the working title 1952, which many assumed was a reference to alien sightings that occurred that year. However, a recent official title change may shed some light on the film's true inspirations.
It's now being called Tomorrowland, and going by the fact that this is a Disney film, we're left to assume that this is some kind of reference to the section of Disneyland that was opened in 1955.
Previously, we got wind that the film would star George Clooney, and would feature a story about aliens making contact with Earth. Close Encounters was cited as an inspiration. Whatever the movie turns out to be, it sounds like we've got a a good bit of J.J. Abrams-level speculation ahead of us. Tomorrowland is currently set for a December 19, 2014 release.
