Actors Giancarlo Esposito ( Better Call Saul, The Mandalorian) and Ke Huy Quan ( Everything Everywhere All at Once, The Goonies ) have joined the cast of The Electric State.
We earlier reported that the ensemble cast includes Millie Bobby Brown, Chris Patt, Michelle Yeoh, Stanley Tucci, Jason Alexander, Brian Cox and Jenny Slate. Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, the duo popularly known as Russo Brothers, the film is produced under their banner AGBO. It is based on the book of the same name authored by Simon Stalenhag. Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely have penned the script. The film went on floors in Atlanta, Georgia, in October.
According to the makers, The Electric State is set in a retro-futuristic past, where an orphaned teenager (played by Brown) traverses the American West with a sweet but mysterious robot and an eccentric drifter in search of her younger brother. Meanwhile, Netflix acquired the film. The Electric State also continues the Russo Brothers and AGBO’s partnership with the streaming giant following the release of The Gray Man starring Ryan Gosling, Chris Evans and Ana de Armas and Dhanush.
