Brad Bird's Tomorrowland with George Clooney begins filming; new details revealed

The mysterious Brad Bird/Damon Lindelof film TOMORROWLAND has commenced principal photography and a new press release from Disney has dropped more details on the film, which is still veiled in secrecy. Directed by Brad Bird (THE INCREDIBLES, MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - GHOST PROTOCOL) with a screenplay by Damon Lindelof (PROMETHEUS, Lost), TOMORROWLAND has been teasing us with various snippets, including a mysterious (there's that word again) box full of items from the 1950's and an app that takes you on a, wait for it, mysterious journey through time. So, if your'e a fan of mystery then, by all means, TOMORROWLAND is the movie for you. I'm optimistic, given the talent involved, but apprehensive, as I'm hoping this doesn't become another project crushed by ambiguity, leaving audiences scratching their heads trying to make sense of what they just saw. I'd like to see a smart adventure film that doesn't cause my brain to hurt, but rather gets the synapses firing.

Here's the press release (synopsis in bold):

Principal photography has begun on Disney’s mystery adventure “Tomorrowland,” starring two-time Academy AwardÒ winner George Clooney (“Michael Clayton,” “Syriana”), Hugh Laurie (“Monsters vs. Aliens,” “Arthur Christmas”), Britt Robertson (“Under The Dome”), Raffey Cassidy (“Dark Shadows,” “Snow White and the Huntsman”) and Thomas Robinson (“The Switch”). The film is directed, produced and co-written by two-time Oscar® winner Brad Bird (“Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol,” “The Incredibles”). Damon Lindelof (“Star Trek Into Darkness,” “Prometheus”) and Jeffrey Chernov (“Star Trek,” “Star Trek Into Darkness,” “Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol”) are also producers. The screenplay is written by Brad Bird and Damon Lindelof from a story by Lindelof & Jeff Jensen and Brad Bird.

Jeff Jensen and John Walker (“The Incredibles”) will executive produce with Bernard Bellew (“Les Misérables,” “28 Weeks Later”) and Tom Peitzman, VFX producer (“Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol,” “Alice in Wonderland”) serving as co-producers.

Bound by a shared destiny, a bright, optimistic teen bursting with scientific curiosity and a former boy-genius inventor jaded by disillusionment embark on a danger-filled mission to unearth the secrets of an enigmatic place somewhere in time and space that exists in their collective memory as “Tomorrowland.”  

Bird has gathered a great team behind the lens with Oscar® winning director of photography Claudio Miranda (“Life of Pi,” “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”), production designer Scott Chambliss (“Star Trek,” “Star Trek Into Darkness,” “Cowboys & Aliens”), Oscar® nominated costume designer Jeffrey Kurland (“Inception,” “Ocean’s Eleven”) and Academy Award®-winning editor Walter Murch (“The English Patient,” “Cold Mountain”).

TOMORROWLAND brings the mystery on December 12, 2014.
