It didn’t take long after the success of Netflix’s Original ‘Project Power’ for ‘The Batman‘ screenwriter Mattson Tomlin to start raking in more projects. The Hollywood Reporter has now revealed Tomlin is set to direct his very own feature with Reeves attached to produce.
The movie, titled Mother/Android, will star Chloë Grace Moretz as Georgia, a woman attempting to escape her home country with her boyfriend during a war with artificial intelligence. Nearing the birth of their first child, the young couple must face “a stronghold of the android uprising, in hopes of reaching safety before giving birth.” The story is also reportedly inspired by Tomlin's own life, telling a sci-fi interpretation of his parents working "to save their child amid the dangers of the Romanian Revolution."
“Mother/Andriod is a deeply personal story inspired by sacrifices made to bring me into this world,” Tomlin said in a statement. “I’m thrilled to be working with Miramax and my friend Matt Reeves to tell a story that speaks to the strength of humanity in the darkest of times.”
Miramax’s Bill Block added, “Tomlin gracefully weaves the history of his roots into a futuristic tale with an imaginative twist on reality. It’s a true testament to his talent and unique approach at captivating broad, global audiences.”
