GEORGE Clooney’s forthcoming film with Pixar director Brad Bird has been named Tomorrowland.

Set for release on December 19, 2014, the project has been shrowded in mystery for some time, having originally been greenlit with a working title of 1952.

The plot still remains a mystery but has been co-written by Bird and Damon Lindelof, of Prometheus and Lost fame.

Both Lindelof and Bird have been adding to the intrigue surrounding the film by posting Twitter updates that may or may be dropping clues.

Last week, Bird posted a photograph of an archive box labelled ‘1952’ on his Twitter account, which contained items including Technicolour film, old photographs of Walt Disney, a history of NASA titled Model Research, an August 1928 edition of Amazing Stories magazine, and a 7” record in a plain paper sleeve.

Lindelof, meanwhile, Tweeted on Monday (January 28): “We won’t tell you what it’s about (yet), but we will tell you what it’s NOT about. And that would be ALIENS. #Tomorrowland”

Bird most recently made the switch from Pixar animation to live action with Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol.
