Mother/Android – TBD (Post-Production)
Fans of the 2020 Netflix sci-fi action flick Project Power, specifically it’s writing, are in for some good news as Mattson Tomlin, who penned the film’s script as well as Matt Reeves’ The Batman, will soon make his directorial debut with the thriller Mother/Android with Chloë Grace Moretz in the lead role. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Moretz will play Georgia, a mother-to-be, who goes with her boyfriend, Sam (Judas and the Black Messiah’s Algee Smith) on a perilous journey to escape their country as it battles a rouge artificial intelligence. Before Georgia can reach safety and give birth to her child, she must cross “No Man’s Land,” a stronghold of the android uprising.
When the project was first announced, Mattson Tomlin revealed that Mother/Android is loosely based on his parents who fled their native Romania for a better life elsewhere, calling it a “deeply personal story.” Production got underway in September 2020, per an Instagram post from the writer/director and wrapped in November 2020. There is no word on when or how Mother/Android will be released, but expect details in the coming months.
