Twenty years after being stranded on an island in Cast Away, Tom Hanks will now play the last man on earth in the upcoming post apocalyptic sci-fi film from Amblin Entertainment, titled Bios. Cast Away director Robert Zemeckis will produce the film.
Deadline reports that the film is set to begin production in 2019. Zemeckis describes Bios as "“a really cool science-fiction story. It’s set in a post-apocalyptic world and Tom Hanks may or may not be the last human survivor on the planet.”
“Hanks will portray Finch, the last man on earth, who decides he must plan for the worst by building a robot that could care for his dog. The canine is the only thing in the world that Finch truly loves. His challenge, however, is programming the robot to “love” the dog and teaching the dog to accept the strange synthetic newcomer as a member of their pack.”
Bios is directed by Miguel Sapochnik from a script written by Craig Luck (Solo: A Star Wars Movie) and Ivor Powell (Blade Runner). The film is scheduled to release on October 2nd, 2020.
