Tomorrowland, the science fiction adventure mystery movie inspired by a Disney theme park attraction of the same name, is scheduled to hit the theater screens on May 22, 2015. Originally titled 1952, the film tells the story of “A teenage girl, a genius middle-aged man (who was kicked out of Tomorrowland), and a pre-pubescent girl robot attempt to get to and unravel what happened to Tomorrowland, which exists in an alternative dimension, in order to save Earth.”
Directed by Brad Bird based on a screenplay he co-wrote with Jeff Jensen and Damon Lindelof, the film is headlined by George Clooney as Frank Miller, the middle-aged man who was kicked out of Tomorrowland when he was a boy (played by Thomas Robinson). Raffey Cassidy will play the role of the teenage girl Athena while Britt Robertson will play the part of the pre-pubescent robot Casey and they will both be helping rank in his Tomorrowland quest. Hugh Laurie is David Nix, the main villain in the movie who kicked out Frank when he was a boy and who becomes mayor of Tomorrowland. Others in the cast include Kathryn Hahn, Tim McGraw, Keegan-Michael Key and Judy Greer.
The movie wrapped up filming in February. Asked to say something about the film during Reddit’s AMA (Ask Me Anything). George Clooney said: “”I literally have a harness on and I’ve been hanging from 30 ft from 4 different blue screens and literally as we are talking they are all staring at me because I had to get down to do this. I have all these wire hanging off of me….Brad is a really good guy with a wild imagination. If I don’t screw it up it will be a great film. You have to be careful what you say because everything is top secret, so I don’t want to ruin it by telling you that everyone dies in the end. Oops, I’ve said too much.” But of course, everyone knows that Clooney is a habitual prankster.

The Beverly Hills-based company has bulked up its Cannes slate with the thriller starring Britt Robertson, one of the leads in Disney’s upcoming sci-fi Tomorrowland.
Justin Long, Christian Slater, Martin Sheen, Robert Patrick and Max Carver round out the key cast.
Robertson plays a wild young woman who takes a year off before college and authors an anonymous blog about her sexual misadventures with a film teacher just as everything is about to turn sour.
Allison Burnett directs Ask Me Anything based on an adaptation of his novel Undiscovered Gyrl.
“Ask Me Anything is one of those rare films that is capable of striking a chord with audiences in so many different ways,” said Lightning sales and acquisitions consultant Richard S Guardian.
“We were initially drawn to the ingredients that make it so commercially viable – a built-in audience fan base from a book continuing to grow in popularity and a globally recognised cast including a rapidly rising star in Britt Robertson, but were blown away by the film’s desensitised narrative, brought to life by a remarkable cast. We couldn’t be happier to have this film on our slate.”
Senior vp of Lighting Entertainment Joseph Dickstein negotiated the deal with Traction Media.
Lightning’s slate includes horror-thrillers Indigenous and Dark House.
