Samira Wiley Joins “Bios”

Samira Wiley has been tapped to star in upcoming sci-fi feature, Bios. 

Wiley, who won an Emmy for her work in The Handmaid’s Tale will star opposite Tom Hanks in the movie that follows the last man on Earth, who builds a robot to care for his dog.

The film centers on Finch (Hanks), an ailing inventor facing his own mortality, who’s the last man on Earth. He builds a robot (Caleb Landry Jones) to care for his dog, and the trio embark on an epic cross-country journey where the scientist must teach his creation to become human enough to take care of his beloved pet and for his dog to accept a new master.

Game of Thrones helmer Miguel Sapochnik will direct Bios from a script penned by Craig Luck and Ivor Powell. Luck and Powell also serve as executive producers alongside Robert Zemeckis and Andy Berman.

Bios is expected to hit theaters in 2020.
