Tom Hanks is set to take the lead in the sci-fi film “Bios” from newcomer Craig Luck’s spec script. Several studios, including Legendary, Warner Bros. Pictures and Studio 8 are in talks to produce.
The story follows a robot that lives on a post-apocalyptic earth. Built to protect the life of his dying creator’s beloved dog, it learns about life, love, friendship, and the meaning of human life.
Hanks will play that creator. Miguel Sapochnik (“Game of Thrones”) will direct while Kevin Misher (“Public Enemies”) and Ivor Powell (“Blade Runner”) will produce. Filming begins in early 2018.
