“As reported by Entertainment Weekly, Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things) is attached to star in an adaptation of The Electric State, based on the graphicnovel of the same name by Simon Stålenhag. Set in an alternate version of the future where robots and humans co-exist, it stars a teenage girl who embarks on a journey with a mysterious robot who has ties to her missing brother and a larger, sinister conspiracy with far-reaching consequences. Naturally, Brown will play the teenage girl.”
And the Russo Brothers made it clear that this movie WILL BE IN THEATERS.
“We’re thrilled to have this deal with Universal who has committed to a theatrical release of Electric State,” the Russos said in a statement. “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.”
