Hugh Laurie - Hugh Laurie To Play Villain In Tomorrowland?

Hugh Laurie is in talks to star in Disney's 'Tomorrowland'.

The 'House' actor has entered negotiations to play George Clooney's villainous counterpart in Brad Bird's mysterious sci-fi film, which was previously known as '1952'.

The ''ultra secret'' project was originally thought to be an alien invasion movie similar to Steven Spielberg's cult 1978 sci-fi film 'Close Encounters of the Third Kind', but writer Damon Lindelof has since laid rest to the rumours.

He tweeted: ''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 (sic)''.

Damon posted a picture of a box of Walt Disney's personal archive labelled '1952' on his Twitter account last month, alongside the caption: ''The Box... opened''.

The mysterious box contained old photographs of Walt, Technicolour film, a history of NASA called 'Model Research', an August 1928 edition of Amazing Stories magazine, and a vinyl record.

This sparked rumours the film was in fact based on the Tomorrowland section of the Magic Kingdom theme park at Walt Disney World Florida - a Jules Verne-inspired vision of a future that never came to fruition.
