“The Electric State’ – Millie Bobby Brown to star in Russo Brothers sci-fi drama film”
The Electric State, a film adaptation of Simon Stlenhag’s graphic novel, has been successfully acquired by Netflix. Anthony and Joe Russo, who helmed Avengers: Endgame, will helm the project. Millie Bobby Brown, who starred in Stranger Things, is the star of the sci-fi drama movie, which has been in development since 2020. This fall, production is expected to start.
Prior to the eagerly anticipated release of their upcoming international spy thriller The Gray Man, starring Chris Evans and Ryan Gosling, this represents the Russo Brothers’ most recent partnership with the streaming service. The Electric State, in contrast, will be Brown’s fourth Netflix original film following Enola Holmes, Enola Holmes 2, and the upcoming Damsel and Enola Holmes 2 movies.
The Electric State: Synopsis
The Electric State novel, which was first released in 2018, is set in an alternate future when a teenage girl finds a bizarre robot that her missing brother sent to her. The source claims that negotiations are now taking place for Chris Pratt to co-star with Brown.
It follows an orphaned girl (Brown) as she travels the American West with a robot and an eccentric drifter in search of her younger brother in a retro-futuristic past, according to the logline.
The screenplay for the adaptation was written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, who also wrote the screenplay for Avengers: Endgame. Joe and Anthony Russo will direct the movie. Earlier, the project was organised at Universal Pictures.
The Electric State: Cast
Through their AGBO label, The Russo Brothers and Mike Larocca will both work as producers. Chris Castaldi and Patrick Newall serve as producers, and Angela Russo-Otstot, Jake Aust, Geoff Haley, Markus, and McFeely serve as executive producers.
The Electric State movie has been in production since 2017, and Andy and Barbara Muschietti, who work together in the IT industry, were originally going to develop it. Andy Muschietti would also serve as the movie’s director. However, Andy Muschietti made the decision to step down as the project’s director in order to concentrate on Warner Bros.’s eagerly awaited Flash movie.
