Frosty over at Collider conversed with Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, the writers of Disney’s forthcoming “Tomorrowland” film over weekend (at the junket for their latest film, “The Hangover”, in Los Angeles), and got an update on the former.
Confirming Dwayne Johnson as the film’s star, the duo went on to say he’s playing a character named ‘Rip’, â€œa present day test pilot who tests a plane and gets shot into the future and so he is sort of a fish out of water in the future. So he has to figure out how everything works and along the way the people of the future donâ€™t know who he is, so they think he is a bad guy bent on destroying the future. So Rip is sort of on the run.â€
The duo described the film as ‘Pirates of the Caribbean in Space’ (but I can see every writer that gets a meeting with Disney describing their film as ‘Pirates of the Caribbean meets…’ or ‘Pirates of the Caribbean in..’ can’t you!?)
Here’s how the late, great Walt Disney once described the ‘Tomorrowland’ attraction : “Tomorrow can be a wonderful age. Our scientists today are opening the doors of the Space Age to achievements that will benefit our children and generations to come. The Tomorrowland attractions have been designed to give you an opportunity to participate in adventures that are a living blueprint of our future.”
