Hulu has acquired U.S. rights to Miramax sci-fi thriller Mother/Android. Starring Chloë Grace Moretz (Tom & Jerry, Shadow in the Cloud, Kick-Ass) and directed by Mattson Tomlin, the film will debut as a Hulu Original Film in 2021.
Mother/Android is written and directed by Mattson Tomlin (The Batman, Project Power) and is his directorial debut feature.
The film is produced by Matt Reeves (The Batman, War of the Planet of the Apes, Cloverfield) through his 6th & Idaho production company with Adam Kassan, Rafi Crohn along with Miramax’s Bill Block (The Gentlemen, District 9), and Charles Miller.
Said Mattson Tomlin, “This film is a labor of love and I couldn’t be happier that in these extremely strange times, Mother/Android will be handled by a partner who truly cares. I feel extremely lucky to have Hulu bringing the film to audiences later this year.”
Added Matt Reeves, “Mattson’s directorial debut is an intimate sci-fi film that is both beautiful and extremely personal, with a powerful, soulful performance from Chloë Moretz. I am incredibly excited that Hulu will be sharing Mother/Android with audiences.”
Set in the near future, Mother/Android follows Georgia (Chloë Grace Moretz) and her boyfriend Sam (Algee Smith) through their treacherous journey of escape as their country is caught in an unexpected war with artificial intelligence.
Days away from the arrival of their first child, they must face No Man’s Land – a stronghold of the android uprising, in hopes of reaching safety before giving birth.
Mother/Android joins Hulu’s growing slate of Original films, including Palm Springs, Bad Hair, Run, Happiest Season, The United States vs. Billie Holiday, Boss Level, False Positive, and more.
Chloë Grace Moretz previously teamed up with Matt Reeves on Let Me In, the filmmaker’s 2010 remake of the 2008 Swedish film Let the Right One In.
