Skeet Ulrich and Laura Harrier join Tom Hank’s sci-fi film Bios

Amblin has announced that Skeet Ulrich (Scream) and Laura Harrier (BlacKkKlansman) have signed on to join the cast of the upcoming sci-fi drama Bios. They will be joining Oscar winner Tom Hanks (Forrest Gump), Caleb Landry Jones (Get Out), and Samira Wiley (The Handmaid’s Tale).

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.
