Edgar Wright is returning to science fiction with his next film, which will be an adaptation of the upcoming novel, Set My Heart to Five. According to reports, while Wright will direct the film, it has been adapted to screen by the novel’s author Simon Stephenson.
Based on the synopsis of the novel, which is set to hit the stands later this year, the film will be about a robot who learns to love. Set in 2054, the story follows Jared, ‘an android that works as a dentist, as he undergoes an emotional awakening that is sparked by an introduction to 80s and 90s movies. He then embarks on a quest to convince humans that he and his kind should be permitted to feel.’ Focus Features and Working Title Films have acquired the film rights for the book.
The Baby Driver filmmaker is currently working on his horror film, Last Night In Soho, which is still slated for release on September 25. The principle shooting of the film was completed before the Coronavirus pandemic broke out.
