George Clooney teams up with Disney
George Clooney teams up with Disney for the expected summer box office hit “Tomorrowland”, a futuristic adventure with a hopeful message.
Clooney, known for his roles in “Ocean’s Eleven” and “Syriana”, plays the jaded former boy-genius Frank, who joins teenage science-fan Casey (Britt Robertson) on a mission to unearth the secrets of a place somewhere in time and space called “Tomorrowland”.
The movie, which also stars British actor Hugh Laurie, is directed by Brad Bird, known for Academy Award-winning animated feature films “Ratatouille” and “The Incredibles”.
“I know that Brad is an optimist and he wanted to write a film that said that every time we turn on the news as we do and see how bleak it is, that it doesn’t have to end that way; there’s a future out there if you get involved, and I like the idea of it,” Clooney said at the film’s premiere on Saturday.
“I loved the idea of the story … I liked the ending, I like the way they talked about those subject matters.”
“Tomorrowland” will be released on May 22.
