Bios: Tom Hanks movie adds Caleb Landry Jones
The film follows Finch (Hanks), the last man on Earth. An ailing inventor facing his own mortality, Finch builds a robot (Jones) 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.
Jones, who will be playing the robot caretaker, is known for appearing in Oscar hits such as Get Out, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, and The Florida Project. His credits also include Tyrel, To the Night, Welcome the Stranger, and Twin Peaks. Upcoming projects include The Kindness of Strangers, The Dead Don’t Die, and The Outpost.
Emmy-winning director Miguel Sapochnik (Game of Thrones, Altered Carbon) is directing Bios from a script by Craig Luck (Interloper) and Ivor Powell (The Dreamer).
Kevin Misher and Powell will produce alongside ImageMovers’ Jack Rapke and Jackie Levine. Robert Zemeckis, Luck, Sapochnik, and Andy Berman will serve as executive producers on the film. Universal Pictures will distribute the project domestically and in select international territories.
