Brad Bird’s 1952, his mysterious project at Disney, is still mysterious, but it now has a new title: Tomorrowland. The title was announced on Monday, as was a 2014 release date for the project.
Tomorrowland is Brad Bird’s follow-up to Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol and his first project with Disney since Pixar’s Ratatouille. According to Entertainment Weekly, the project is being written with Damon Lindelof (Prometheus) and EW’s Jeff Jensen. George Clooney will also star, but any other details remain unknown.

Bird tweeted a teaser image, confirming that something big would be announced soon. The image showed a trunk full of artifacts that inspired the film, including an image of Buck Rogers and a copy of Model Research: The National Advisory Committee For Aeronautics 1918-1958 by Alex Roland.
Lindelof also confirmed one thing: it’s not about aliens.
