Through name changes and potentially real, potentially fake casting call plot descriptions, director Brad Bird’s upcoming Tomorrowland has remained one of the closest guarded secrets in Hollywood. Unless someone in the assembly line seriously screws up, fans likely won’t be able to unwrap the mystery in its entirety until the film hits theaters, but today, we got one more morsel to chew on.
Raffey Cassidy, probably best known as young Kristen Stewart in Snow White And The Huntsman or young Eva Green in Dark Shadows, will play a young female robot who a) is an expert fighter and b) is buddies with George Clooney’s bitter inventor. Whether or not he’s the one who invented her or whether or not she’s the key to solving the larger problem he’s facing is pure speculation at this point, but a lack of evidence definitely won’t stop people on the Internet from speculating.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the movie has been described as having a Close Encounters Of The Third Kind vibe, but once again, that really doesn’t tells us much beyond the fact that the final result won’t have this tone. With Bird at the helm, JJ Abrams on as a producer, Hugh Laurie as the antagonist and, of course, Clooney, Tomorrowland seems to be doing everything right. So, for the time being, I’m willing to trust blindly. Here’s to hoping that faith proves well-founded.
