Michelle Yeoh, Stanley Tucci, & More Join Chris Pratt & Millie Bobby Brown In Netflix’s ‘The Electric State’
Recently, The Russo Brothers released their latest film The Gray Man via Netflix. The action-thriller was met with mixed reviews from the critics with many praising the performances of the cast featuring Ryan Gosling, Ana De Armas, and Chris Evans. With that in mind, the filmmaker duo is enlisting a rather impressive ensemble for their next film as well. As first reported by Deadline, The Russos have tapped Michelle Yeoh and Stanley Tucci for their latest film.
Yeoh and Tucci join fellow recent additions Jason Alexander, Brian Cox, and Jenny Slate in the cast. Moreover, all five newcomers will join the previously cast Chris Pratt and Millie Bobby Brown in the project as well. The film, titled The Electric State, was recently acquired by Netflix following a heated bidding war. The Russo Brothers will direct the feature as well as produce via their AGBO banner. Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely will pen the screenplay as an adaptation of the graphic novel with the same name. Moreover, Mike Larocca (21 Bridges) is on board as an executive producer as well.
Written by Simon Stålenhag, The Electric State follows a runaway teenager (Brown) and her yellow robot. As they travel west through the stranger version of the USA, they encounter the ruins of gigantic battle drones. As they attempt to find the teenager’s missing brother, they ultimately uncover a sprawling, grand conspiracy.
Michelle Yeoh is on an incredible streak of roles in hit films following killer performances in Marvel’s Shang Chi and Everything Everywhere All at Once. Up next, the cinematic legend will star in Avatar: The Way of Water before reteaming with Stephanie Hsu for a Disney+ series titled American Born Chinese. Meanwhile, Stanley Tucci recently turned in a critically acclaimed performance in the 2021 film Supernova. Additionally, the Hunger Games star currently voices sassy billionaire Bitsy Brandenham in Apple TV’s Central Park. Up next, Tucci will portray Clive Davis in the Whitney Houston biopic I Wanna Dance with Somebody.
