Millie Bobby Brown (‘Enola Holmes’) will star in the sci-fi ‘The Electric State’.
Brothers Joe and Anthony Russo will direct the film for Universal Pictures from a screenplay written by none other than Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, the writers behind “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Ultimatum”. The film starring Millie Bobby Brown was acquired by Universal after a heated bidding war.
The Russo Brothers replace Andy Muschietti (“It: The Thing”), who left production due to scheduling issues.
The film does not yet have a release date, as filming begins between late 2021 and early 2022.
Based on the graphic novel “ Tales from the Loop, ” by author Simon Stålenhag, which previously won an Apple TV + supervised anthology, “ The Electric State ” takes place in an alternate future where humans and robots live together in relative harmony – and a young teenager (Brown) realizes that her new robot friend has been sent to her by her missing brother. The two then set out on a mission to find him, uncovering a gigantic conspiracy along the way.
Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely (‘Avengers: Endgame’) sign the screenplay.
No other information was released.
