Here’s more about The Electric State

The movie

The Electric State is a live-action big-screen adaptation of Simon Stålenhag’s 2018 graphic novel. As per Netflix, the story depicts the journey of a young woman named Michelle (Brown) who is accompanied by a ‘sweet but mysterious robot.’ The duo join hands with an eccentric drifter and head out on a trip across an ‘electrified, retro-futuristic’ American West to find Michelle’s younger brother.

The team and cast

Besides Brown, Chris Pratt may join the cast as the talks are on. If confirmed, it will mark the reunion of Joe and Anthony Russo with Pratt after Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame.

The Electric State also brings together a number of crew members who have previously worked together on other noted films. The film’s screenplay is being done by The Gray Man writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. They had also worked as scribes for the sibling directors’ Captain America and Avengers movies.

The film is being made as part of the ongoing partnership between Russos’ production house AGBO and Netflix. According to a Deadline report, the Russo brothers and Mike Larocca are producing for AGBO and have Chris Castaldi and Patrick Newall as producers as well. Angela Russo-Otstot, Jake Aust, Geoff Haley, Markus and McFeely serve as executive producers of the project.

Filming and release date

The film was first taken to Universal but got shifted to Netflix after the former refused a budget of USD 200 million. With the Stranger Things star and the team onboard, Netflix says that production can start in October. No release date has been announced yet.
