Brad Bird ("The Incredibles," "Ratatouille") will direct the upcoming Disney flick, "1952." Bird was last in the chair for 2011's "Mission: Impossible—Ghost Protocol," which grossed almost $700 million globally.
Deadline has reported that the script is being kept tightly under wraps for what is expected to be Disney's next big thing.

Damon Lindelof ("Lost" co-creator) and Jeff Jensen wrote the script for "1952"; Lindelof is also producing.
