Mattson Tomlin, Chloe Grace Moretz Team for Sci-Fi Tale ‘Mother/ Android’

Matt Reeves is set to produce the Miramax project, which will be Tomlin’s feature directorial debut.
Mattson Tomlin — the writer behind Netflix’s splashy sci-fi feature Project Power— has set his feature directorial debut with sci-fi thriller Mother/ Android.

Chloe Grace Moretz is set to star in the Miramax project as Georgia, who, with her boyfriend Sam, goes on a treacherous journey to escape their country, which is caught in an unexpected war with artificial intelligence. Days away from the arrival of their first child, the couple must face No Man’s Land— a stronghold of the android uprising, in hopes of reaching safety before Georgia give birth.

Tomlin penned the story, which is loosely based on Tomlin’s birth parents, a young couple who were determined to save their child amid the dangers of the Romanian Revolution.

Matt Reeves, who worked with Tomlin on The Batman, will produce Mother/ Android under his 6th & Idaho banner, along with Adam Kassan and Rafi Crohn. Miramax’s Bill Block will also produce, along with Charles Miller.

Mother/ Android is a deeply personal story inspired by sacrifices made to bring me into this world,” says Tomlin. “I’m thrilled to be working with Miramax and my friend Matt Reeves to tell a story that speaks to the strength of humanity in the darkest of times.

Added Block: “Tomlin gracefully weaves the history of his roots into a futuristic tale with an imaginative twist on reality. It’s a true testament to his talent and unique approach at captivating broad, global audiences.

Tomlin has become one of Hollywood’s go-to scribes for high-concept genre fare. Outside of The Batman, his upcoming credits include sci-fi feature Little Fish, starring Olivia Cooke and Jack Reynor, as well as screen adaptations of comic books Fear Agent and Memetic, and video game Mega Man. He is repped by Grandview and Bloom Hergott.

Moretz, whose recent credits include Suspiria and The Miseducation of Cameron Post, will next be seen in Tim Story’s Tom & Jerry adaptation. She is repped by WME, T Squared Entertainment and Sloane Offer.

Reeves is repped by CAA, 3 Arts and Jackoway Austen.

‘Ballerina’: ‘John Wick’ Spinoff Eyeing Chloë Grace Moretz In Lead Role

ionsgate is looking to expand the world of John Wick. According to insider Daniel Richtman, the studio is eyeing Chloë Grace Moretz to star in Ballerina.

It was announced in October that Swamp Thing director Len Wiseman would helm the spinoff focused on a retired assassin who seeks revenge after her entire family is murdered. Now it seems the film has found its star.

Richtman revealed on his Patreon that the studio is interested in Moretz to star as Rooney Brown. The character was orphaned at a young age and trained as a killer that travels the globe eliminating terrorists, and other targets, but she strictly refuses to kill anyone that she doesn’t believe deserves death. After being targeted by a rival organization, Rooney retires but then seeks revenge when her entire family is slaughtered. She’s strong, ruthless, and seemingly cold in her approach to killing – but exhibits some humanity along the way.
It appears that the studio wants to solidify Ballerina‘s connection to the John Wick series as Anjelica Huston and Keanu Reeves are both in talks to reprise their respective roles.

Shay Hatten is currently writing the film with Basil Iwanyk, and Erica Lee set to produce.

Chloe Grace Moretz, Jack O’Connell to Star in Bonnie and Clyde Movie

Chloë Grace Moretz and Jack O’Connell are attached to star in the Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow story “Love Is a Gun” with Spanish helmer Kiké Maillo directing.

Endeavor Content is handling international sales and will present the project to buyers at the American Film Market, which opens Wednesday in Santa Monica, Calif. CAA is co-repping the film domestically with the producers.

Parker and Barrow gained renown during the Great Depression as they committed multiple bank and store robberies from 1931 to 1935. They are believed to have killed at least nine police officers before they were slain in Louisiana.

The duo became widely known again in 1967 with Arthur Penn’s film “Bonnie and Clyde,” starring Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway. The film was nominated for 10 Academy Awards and won two for Estelle Parsons in the supporting actress category and Burnett Guffey for cinematography.

We are excited to reintroduce the iconic story of Bonnie and Clyde,” said the producers. “Their story remains ubiquitous in popular culture across the globe, yet few in this generation know the details of their intimate love affair and the circumstances that led to their notorious crime spree that captured the imagination of the world in their time. Kike, Chloë and Jack are completely in sync about the character-driven approach we will be taking, and we feel lucky to have a creative team of this high caliber leading us forward.

Production is scheduled to start in early 2019. Moretz recently starred in “The Miseducation of Cameron Post” and can currently be seen in Luca Guadagnino’s “Suspiria,” starring Dakota Johnson. O’Connell starred in Angelina Jolie’s “Unbroken” and Jodie Foster’s “Money Monster.”

Maillo’s feature length directing debut, “Eva,” starring Daniel Brühl, premiered at the 2011 Venice Film Festival and was nominated for 12 Goya Awards, winning three including best new director. His most recent film is the action-thriller “Toro.”

Moretz is repped by WME and T Squared Entertainment and O’Connell is repped by CAA and Conway van Gelder Grant.
