Exclusive: Popular video game voice actress Ellen McLain is early talks to join Amblin’s ‘Bios’, which has Caleb Landry Jones and Tom Hanks attached to star.
Hanks is playing Finch, the last man on earth. He decides to create a robot (McLain) to take care of his dog after he dies, but he must first teach the robot to be more human and the dog to take on a new master. Jones will later take over the role of the robot.
Aside from the ‘Portal’ games, Mclain’s previous credits include ‘Pacific Rim’, ‘Left 4 Dead’, and ‘Half-Life 2’.
‘Game of Thrones’ director Miguel Sapochnik is helming the pic, which has a script from Craig Luck and Ivor Powell. It will begin production later this year for a 2020 release.
