Mar 14 “TOMORROWLAND” SUMMARY EXPLAINS WHAT HUGH LAURIE & GEORGE CLOONEY ARE UP TO 1
Filed in: movies , news

Before today, all we knew about Disney’s Tomorrowland was that Brad Bird would direct George Clooney in it, Hugh Laurie would probably sign as the villain, and Damon Lindelof signed a seven-figure deal to co-write the script. Now we finally have an idea of what Tomorrowland is about, and it involves alternate dimensions and robots and a theme park.

Hitfix  posted an extended synopsis. The short version is, George Clooney is playing the middle-aged man (Frank Walker) and Hugh Laurie is playing David Nix, a corrupt boss of an alternate dimension’s Disneyland.

The “Tomorrowland” that they keep referring to in this break-down appears to be a place where science has blown past the world we live in, and when Frank Walker was a young man, he first encountered the promise of Tomorrowland at the 1964 World’s Fair. David Nix was there, showing off his own work, and he told Walker to come back when he was older and his inventions actually worked. A girl named Athena saw great promise in 11-year-old Frank, though, and she snuck him into Tomorrowland. Eventually, Frank was discovered by Nix and thrown out, but not before learning that the girl he loved, Athena, was actually a robot.

By the time we meet Frank in the film, he’s much older, and George Clooney is set to play the part. Nix is the role that Hugh Laurie is signed for, and by the point the main story of the film kicks in, Nix has been in charge of Disneyland for many years, and he’s become rotten, corrupt. Athena, unchanged since Frank was a young man, plays a key role in the film, and the hero is a girl named Casey who has a quick scientific mind that becomes important as the story unfolds. Nix is a guy who values technical accomplishment over creative thinking, and when he throws Frank out of Tomorrowland, he’s not alone. Every creative thinker is banished, allowing Nix to focus purely on aesthetics and technical advancement for its own sake. [Hitfix]

I’m not sure why that synopsis starts with the statement that Tomorrowland “appears to be a place where” yadda yadda. That’s a very detailed synopsis if it’s based on what something “appears to be”. We can play at that game. It appears to be that Hugh Laurie’s character, who runs the alternate universe’s Disneyland, will die and be cryogenically frozen. Then George Clooney goes to Six Flags. We just used imagination to discover all kinds of new things!

Feb 15 HUGH LAURIE IN TALKS FOR VILLAIN ROLE IN “TOMORROWLAND” 0
Filed in: movies , news

Hugh Laurie is in negotiations to play the villain in Tomorrowland, Disney’s top secret sci-fi project starring George Clooney and being directed by Brad Bird.

The plot of the movie project, which until a couple of weeks ago was being called 1952, is under lock and key, though it has been described as being in the vein of Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Steven Spielberg’s 1978 movie about a man searching for extra-terrestrials on Earth.

All that is known about Laurie’s character is that he serves as the movie’s antagonist.

Lost co-creator Damon Lindelof co-wrote the script with Jeff Jensen, an editor at Entertainment Weekly.

The pedigree of Bird and Lindelof, their standing in the geek community and the force field of secrecy enveloping the project have raised interest in Tomorrowland

Laurie is best known for his Emmy-nominated starring role as the brilliant but cold title character in Fox’s House M.D. which ran from 2004-12. The show kept him busy, but he did find time to appear in the ensemble drama The Oranges and to lend his voice to such animated fare as Arthur Christmas and Monster vs. Aliens.

He is repped by WME.
