That was a Tommorowland project set up with The Rock starring and scripted by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore who wrote The Hangover. Sounded a little cheesy, but could have been cool. More project details can be found here - Tomorrowland Movie Details Revealed | /Film.

The future is not dark, gritty or post-apocalyptic, but instead a fantastic place where every gadget or device is cooler than you expected it to be. In my previous article, I wished that the film would be set in a retro future, the 1960’s version of tomorrow, but it seems like that isn’t the plan.
Rip is stranded in the future, and must “figure out how everything works”. A misunderstanding causes the people of the future to believe that Rip is some evil bad guy trying to destroy their time. “So Rip is sort of on the run.” Moore, speaking about the film’s tone, called it “Pirates [of the Caribbean] in space.”
Disney is on the 3D bandwaggon, and this seems like another perfect project for that technology. It sounds like the film is still early in the developmental stages. Moore expects to turn in a draft of the screenplay in early June, but is unsure if the film will be fast tracked into production or go through another series of drafts (the latter is probably more likely)."
