Johnson takes trip to ‘Tomorrowland’

Segment of Disneyland gets 'Pirates' treatment

After turning the theme park ride “Pirates of the Caribbean” into a blockbuster film trilogy, Disney is circling an entire segment of its theme park — Tomorrowland — as inspiration for a space movie that will star Dwayne Johnson.

The studio has set scribes 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.”

Disney denies the film has been titled “Tomorrowland” or is dedicated to the park’s section, a futuristic area of the Magic Kingdom that includes such attractions as Space Mountain. 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.”

The scribes most recently wrote the upcoming Matthew McConaughey-Jennifer Garner starrer “The Ghosts of Girlfriends Past” from New Line, as well as comedy “The Hangover,” which Todd Phillips will direct for Warner Bros.
