‘Tomorrowland’ Casts a Robot Girl, Might Confirm Earlier Plot Rumors
Casting for 'Tomorrowland' appears to be in full swing, with young actress Raffey Cassidy signing on to play a little robot girl -- and with that, the leaked rumor about the plot seems to be somewhat confirmed.
We don't expect to know much more about 'Tomorrowland' for some time -- like fellow directors JJ Abrams and Chris Nolan, Brad Bird is keeping his lips sealed on the upcoming Disney project. Bird is directing from a script by fellow man of mystery Damon Lindelof and former Entertainment Weekly writer Jeff Jensen.
But now THR reports that Raffey Cassidy, the British actress who played a young version of Kristen Stewart in 'Snow White and the Huntsman,' has been cast in the role of a robotic girl, lending credence to the rumored plot details posted at HitFix a while back. The gist:
A teenage girl, a genius middle-aged man (who was kicked out of Tomorrowland) and a pre-pubescent girl robot attempt to get to and unravel what happened to Tomorrowland, which exists in an alternative dimension, in order to save Earth.
