Millie Bobby Brown to Star in the Russo Brothers’ Sci-Fi Film ‘The Electric State’
Millie Bobby Brown is attached to star in the science-fiction movie “The Electric State” for Universal Pictures with Anthony and Joe Russo directing and producing.
The project, based on Simon Stalenhag’s illustrated novel of the same name, is set in an alternative future and centers on a teenage girl (Brown) who realizes that a strange but sweet robot who comes to her has actually been sent by her missing brother. She and the robot set out to find her brother in an imaginative world of humans mixing with all manner of robots, uncovering a grand conspiracy in the process.
The Russo brothers said in a statement: “We’re thrilled to have this deal with Universal who has committed to a theatrical release of ‘Electric State.’ This is incredible news for us as filmmakers, and for audiences around the world who want an opportunity to experience films in theaters again. This is also a positive sign that, as vaccines become available, the theatrical market is returning.”
