Tom Hanks to Star in Sci-Fi Film ‘Finch’ Headed to Apple TV+ Later This Year
Apple TV+ has won an auction for a new sci-fi movie starring Tom Hanks that will premiere on the streaming service later on this year, according to Deadline. The report says the film will likely be an awards season competitor.
Titled “Finch,” the film is stated to revolve around a guy, a robot, and a pet that form an unlikely family. Hanks stars as Finch, a robotics engineer who has lived in an underground bunker for a decade after being one of the few survivors of a “cataclysmic solar event” that has left the world a wasteland, the report describes.
Finch develops a robotic (played by “Get Out” star Caleb Landry Jones) to supervise his pet Goodyear when he no longer can. The trio is said to start a “risky journey into a desolate American West” as Finch discovers the pleasure of living.
The movie is directed by Miguel Sapochnik, who “helmed some of the most enthusiastic episodes of Game of Thrones,” according to the report. It will be the second film starring Hanks to debut on Apple TELEVISION+ after “Greyhound” in 2015.
Update: Apple also announced today that funny series “Mr. Corman,” created by, directed by, and starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, will make its international launching on Apple TV+ on Friday, August 6.
