Is This the Plot for Brad Bird’s ‘Tomorrowland’?

By  · Published on March 4th, 2013

Over at HitFix, Drew has published the logline (and further details) that the production for Tomorrowland is using to find actors:

“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.”

Brad Bird is directing with a script from Damon Lindelof, so secrecy has been the order of the day, but as Drew mentions, the grain of salt here is that this logline could have nothing to do with what the movie is about. I’ll point to the script pages actors’ delivered during auditions for The Cabin in the Woods as another example of the games mysterious productions play. They know this stuff gets leaked, so whether they chose to be straightforward or further obfuscate is anyone’s guess until we see the first trailer.

But all that being said, if this is the real synopsis, it could be a lot of fun. Plus, George Clooney is going to do great as the pre-pubescent girl robot! Unless that’s the role Hugh Laurie is taking.
