Tom Hanks is looking to star in an upcoming dystopian science fiction film from Amblin Entertainment and Universal Pictures titled Bios, which will be directed by Miguel Sapochnik (Repo Men, Game of Thrones, Altered Carbon). We have learned about a key creative added to the film’s crew.
Finch (Hanks) is the last man on Earth. An ailing inventor facing his own mortality builds a robot to keep his beloved dog safe. As the trio embarks upon an epic cross-country journey, the scientist must teach his creation to become human enough to take care of its charge, and the beloved pet to accept a new master.
HN Entertainment has been able to confirm that production designer Tom Meyer has joined the Tom Hanks science fiction film. Meyer’s credits include Netflix’s Spectral and Disney’s Real Steel, he was once attached to work on Guillermo del Toro’s Fantastic Voyage remake for 20th Century Fox.
Meyer is an interesting choice and I’m curious what this sci-fi landscape will look like. He worked closely with Weta Workshop on Spectral, maybe they’ll get involved with Bios as well?
Filming is expected to begin on February 25th and wrap on May 19th. Locations are said to include Albuquerque, New Mexico and possibly Toronto.
Bios’ release date has been set for October 2nd, 2020 by Universal Pictures.
