It was supposed to be a closely held secret. The kind only Hollywood types can keep. But then the calls to the media started.
Sources tell InfoTel News that the Disney movie "Tomorrowland" is shooting in the Enderby and Grindrod areas. Wheatfield Productions is the local production company.
The movie stars George Clooney, Hugh Laurie from "House" and Britt Roberston who is in "Under the Dome." Brad Bird is directing. You may have seen some of his films like "Mission Impossible: The Ghost Protocal," "The Incredibles" and "Ratatouille."
The movie is listed on the B.C. Film Commission's website and the IMBD (Internet Movie Data Base) site has even more details. Bird also revealed some of the secrets he's been tweeting about at Disney's D23 event on the weekend.
Apparently "Tomorrowland" is about a teenaged girl, a genius and a pre-pubescent girl robot trying to figure out what happened to a land that exists in an alternative dimension. The future of Earth is on the line. Tomorrowland from the Disney theme parks figures prominently.
The production is certain to be having a huge financial impact in the North Okanagan.
The science fiction adventure film is scheduled to be in theatres Christmas of 2014.
