The project was previously titled 1952, before being renamed Tomorrowland last month.

Laurie would play the film's antagonist if he were to join, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Lost's Damon Lindelof has co-written the project's script along with Jeff Jensen.

Since leaving House last year, Hugh Laurie has starred in ensemble drama The Oranges and an adaptation of Lloyd Jones's Mister Pip.

Tomorrowland is scheduled to be released on December 19, 2014.

Little is known about the film's plot, with Brad Bird posting a photograph of an archive box labelled '1952' on his Twitter account last month.

It contained items including Technicolor film, old photographs of Walt Disney, a history of NASA titled Model Research, an August 1928 edition of Amazing Stories magazine, and a 7" record in a plain paper sleeve.
