According to insiders, the film is “being fast-tracked,” but Millie‘s shooting schedule with a new season of Stranger Things and the Russos directing The Gray Man adaptation next month makes it unclear when this would get into production, “but the hope is between the end of 2021 or the top of 2022.”

Here’s a plot summary: “Set in an alternative future, it tells the story of a teenage girl (Brown) who realizes that a strange but sweet robot who comes to her has actually been sent by her missing brother. She and the robot set out to find the brother in an imaginative world of humans mixing with all manner of robots, uncovering a grand conspiracy in the process.”

“We’re thrilled to have this deal with Universal who has committed to a theatrical release of Electric State. This is incredible news for us as filmmakers, and for audiences around the world who want an opportunity to experience film’s in theaters again. This is also a positive sign that, as vaccines become available, the theatrical market is returning,” the Russos said in a statement.
