Hulu has acquired the U.S. rights for Miramax sci-fi thriller Mother/Android. The film, starring Chloë Grace Moretz (Shadow in the Cloud, Kick-Ass) and directed by Mattson Tomlin (The Batman, Project Power), will debut as a Hulu Original Film in 2021.
Set in the near future, Mother/Android follows Georgia (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.
Along with Moretz and Smith the film also stars Raul Castillo (We the Animals). Tomlin also wrote the script and will mark his directorial debut feature.
“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,” said Tomlin.
Producer Matt Reeves (The Batman, War of the Planet of the Apes, Cloverfield) said, “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.”
Reeves produces through his 6th & Idaho production company with Adam Kassan, Rafi Crohn along with Miramax’s Bill Block (The Gentlemen, District 9), and Charles Miller.
