‘Bios’ Enlists Samira Wiley to Star Alongside Tom Hanks & Caleb Landry Jones

Mar 5, 2019

Samira Wiley will join Tom Hanks and Caleb Landry Jones in Universal and Amblin’s ‘Bios.’

Wiley is popular for her role in the Emmy-winning Hulu series ‘The Handmaid’s Tale.’ She also had appearances in Netflix’s ‘Orange Is the New Black’ and FXX’s ‘You’re the Worst.’ Her most recent feature film was Kathryn Bigelow’s ‘Detroit.’

The premise is below:

“Finch (Hanks), an ailing inventor facing his own mortality, is the last man on Earth. He builds a robot (Jones) to care for his dog, and the trio embark on an epic cross-country journey where the scientist must teach his creation to become human enough to take care of his beloved pet and for his dog to accept a new master.”

Jones will be undergoing motion-capture for the robot role.

Also, our own Thomas Polito gave an exclusive on another actor potentially joining: Ellen McLain (‘Portal,’ ‘Pacific Rim’).

Moreover, Miguel Sapochnik (‘Repo Men,’ Iron Fist’) is directing the film. He is also famous for helming the Emmy-winning ‘Battle of the Bastards’ episode of ‘Game of Thrones.’ The screenplay is from Craig Luck and Ivor Powell.
