George Clooney is heading to "Tomorrowland."

No, not the futuristic park-within-a-park at Disneyland, but the secretive Brad Bird-directed sci-fi movie that was previously titled "1952" and has now been bestowed with the above moniker. Not that it brings us any closer to decoding the live-action flick's mysterious plotline...

"Tomorrowland"'s screenplay was penned by Bird alongside Damon Lindelof ("Lost," "Star Trek Into Darkness") from a concept by Jeff Jensen; the two are also on board to produce. Clooney signed on to star in the Walt Disney Studios film late last year.
