Skeet Ulrich and Laura Harrier Join Tom Hanks in Bios

-

Amblin Partners today announced that it has concluded principal photography on its upcoming film Bios, which was shot primarily in locations across New Mexico. The production also announced Skeet Ulrich (Escape Room, Scream) and Laura Harrier (BlacKkKlansman, Spider-Man: Homecoming) as new additions to the cast.

In Bios, Tom Hanks (Cast Away, Saving Private Ryan, Forrest Gump) stars as Finch, one of the only survivors of a cataclysmic event that has left America, and the world, a wasteland ravaged by solar radiation. An ailing inventor facing his own mortality, Finch builds a robot 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.


The film, directed by Miguel Sapochnik (HBO’s Game of Thrones, True Detective), shot in locations around New Mexico including Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Shiprock, Los Lunas, Socorro and White Sands. The production employed approximately 125 New Mexico crew members, 7 New Mexico actors and over 400 New Mexico background talent.

Previously announced in the cast are Caleb Landry Jones (Get Out and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri) and Samira Wiley (The Handmaid’s Tale and Orange Is the New Black).

The live-action film is written by Craig Luck and Ivor Powell (Alien, Blade Runner), and is produced by Kevin Misher (Public Enemies, Fighting with My Family), as well as ImageMovers’ Jack Rapke (Cast Away, Flight) and Jackie Levine (Allied, upcoming Robert Zemeckis’ adaptation of The Witches), alongside Powell. Academy Award winner Robert Zemeckis (Cast Away, Flight, Back to the Future trilogy), Sapochnik, Adam Merims, Luck and Andy Berman serve as executive producers.


Producing in association with Amblin Partners is Walden Media, who recently closed a deal to board the project. This will be the fourth film which Amblin and Walden have partnered on.

Overseeing for Amblin Partners is Co-President of Production Jeb Brody, along with Andrew Calof, VP, Creative Affairs.

The film will be released on October 2nd, 2020 by Universal Pictures domestically, and Universal and Amblin Partners internationally.
