Brad Bird’s follow-up to Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol is the first collaboration with screenwriter and geek punching bag Damon Lindelof. While the science fiction film Tomorrowland doesn’t open in theaters for more than a year, Bird and Lindelof are getting the mysterious film together for an undisclosed production start date. And although Tomorrowland will be first the brainchild from Bird and Lindelof, the new family film will have a familiar tone that is the signature of almost all of Brad Bird’s movies.
The 56-year-old director announced from his Twitter account that one of his long-time collaborators will join him while making Tomorrowland a reality. The new film will feature new music from Academy Award-winning film composer Michael Giacchino. Although the announcement is not too surprising — Giacchino composed the film scores for the last three movies from Brad Bird — it is always refreshing to hear new material from the world-renowned composer.
