    According to industry reports actor Hugh Laurie ('House') is in negotiations to star as the villian in the upcoming Brad Bird film, 'Tomorrowland.'

    Also:

    When asked yesterday Bird said that George Clooney will direct and star in his own previously announced film, 'The Monuments Men' first before beginning production on Disney's 'Tomorrowland'.

    'The Monuments Men' is the story of the U.S. government's efforts to retrieve artwork stolen by Hitler's forces and the art experts whose skills are put to use in the campaign. The film will star Clooney, Daniel Craig, Cate Blanchett, Bill Murray, John Goodman, Bob Balaban and Best Actor winner Jean Dujardin ('The Artist').


    Mods note:

    perhaps this thread could now be relocated from DL section to NEWS or MOVIES, thanks!

    Actually Disney was working on a reboot of The Black Hole for the longest time and the plan was to have Joseph Kosinski direct. That is why in Tron Legacy there is a Black Hole reference at the beginning of the film. I'm not sure what is going on with that project currently but it's unrelated to this movie.

    I read an article on Lainey Gossip and she suspects that Tomorrowland is the long awaited Walt Disney movie. That would be pretty sweet! 1952 was the year that Walt Disney announced that he would be building Disneyland.

    Now I'm going to have to dig up all the old footage from when Walt Disney had those great short films MAN IN SPACE, MAN AND THE MOON, MAN AND BEYOND (1955 - 1957)

    Odd choice to rename a film called '1952' to 'Tomorrowland', but that must mean Disney has canceled the other 'Tomorrowland'-related film. I had this idea tucked in the back of my mind that I planned for the peoplemover that involved time-machines, a touring company and X-S Tech (downsized); but going back to the photograph of the open box, is that a photo of a young Walt Disney with Werner Von Braun or some other equally famous Rocket scientist?

    Truthfully, Disney's new motto should just be... IF WE BUILD IT, THEY WILL COME, because good or bad Disney attracts millions of people no matter what they do.... films, attractions, vacation opportunities, events, collectibles. You name it, people go to it and spend lots of money doing so.

    Since Disney is famous for creating alternate realities via their animation and even some of their live action movies [ie TRON],,, maybe this is a movie about that reality becoming a little too real???

    I wonder how many rumors will come about due to the title of the movie... might not even have anything to do with Tomorrowland...

    Hardly -- not when the majority of the investment was in an entire land based solely on the Cars franchise, which for years has been a proven monster money-maker in merchandise. And let's not forget that the DCA "update" was a giant repair job, to fix the screwups of the Eisner regime.

    The fact is that for decades in Disneyland, the Disney Corporation has refused to do anything that doesn't have a tie-in to a successful brand. If the Walt Disney Company had followed the same business model in Disneyland's creation and first two decades as the Disney Corporation has done for the last two decades, Disneyland wouldn't have been a world-famous success, and we wouldn't be having this conversation.

    No matter if one compares Disneyland's management vision, theme park business model, creative innovation or risk taking, there is, quite simply, zero similarity between Walt's Disney Company and Eisger's Disney Corporation. The WDC was a founder-driven company that was world famous for creative innovation; Disney Corp is a Wall Street style corporation that is world famous for making money. Claims that Disney Corp is in any manner following the standards, models, methods or philosophy of Walt's Disney Company are simply not supported by the reality of what the former is -- and what the latter was.

Compare that to today's Disney Corporation, which for all its deep pockets and humongous profits is notoriously risk-averse and creatively lazy.
    It doesn't matter why Walt Disney originally made the deal with ABC. What matters is that he saw how well it worked and he kept doing it (even when he no longer needed to). You can say the current company is overemphasising this aspect of the Disney tradition but this seems like a real call back to the media strategy of the earliest days of Disneyland.

    Also the modern Disney company does not seem incredibly risk averse to me. The recent DCA update was a huge expensive risk. It could easily have been throwing good money after bad. Shanghai and Hong Kong Disney were risks. The new
    fastpass plus stuff is a huge risk. Misguided perhaps but risk adverse it isn't.

    One of the many complaints about the original CA Adventure is that it wasn't "Disney" enough - the park as a whole, not just the rides. However, the quality of the rides was a large complaint as well. Really, other than Soarin' and Grizzly there weren't that many Disney quality attractions on opening day.

    Rather than change the quality of the rides, they tried to fix things the easy way by slapping Disney characters on everything and making every new ride character based. If they were to provide some really quality non-branded attractions I bet the public would take to them just as well as the branded ones.
    But the fact remains that the inclusion of characters is still one of the many demands the modern resort goer demands from disney. And one that was called for specifically among the many faults from when DCA was at its worse.

    While I agree DCA's biggest problem was quality, the lack of disney characters was still enough of a fault to be mentioned by guests. More proof can be seen by the popularity of Cars land and the wizarding world of harry potter. People demand the characters they know and love and the great quality to go with it.

Where would there profits past, present and future be without Universal Pictures' own Jaws, and Jurassic Park, Paramount's King Kong and Transformers or Warner Brothers' Harry Potter? They are all giving the public what the public has already told them they enjoy and want.
    If the theme park is in a Motion Picture studio and their slogan is "Ride the movies" why would I expect anything different??
