Variety says that Disney is developing a space movie based on its Tomorrowland theme park that will star Dwayne Johnson, much like how it turned the “Pirates of the Caribean” ride into a blockbuster film trilogy.
The studio has set screenwriters Jon Lucas and Scott Moore to draft an epic-sized action adventure set in space. The film is being designed as a vehicle for Johnson, who starred for the studio in family hit The Game Plan and most recently completed Race to Witch Mountain.
The trade adds that Disney denies the film has been titled Tomorrowland or is dedicated to the park’s section, a futuristic area of the Magic Kingdom. The studio called the nascent project an original script.
The film would be produced by Mayhem Pictures partners Mark Ciardi and Gordon Gray, who produced The Game Plan.
