Brad Bird To Helm “1952” At Disney

“The Incredibles” and “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol” director Brad Bird may have found his next directorial effort – “1952” at Disney Pictures says Deadline.

Former “Lost” producer and “Prometheus” scribe Damon Lindelof co-wrote the script with Jeff Jensen and while plot details are under wraps, the project aims to be a “tent pole with multi-platform aspirations”.

Disney hopes it’ll be Bird’s next project but admittedly it’s still a while off as shooting would not get underway until next year and Lindelof will produce. Bird meanwhile is developing his own projects including the similarly titled but quite different “1906”.
