Becoming a member of The Batman’s Robert Pattinson in Mickey7, the upcoming sci-fi movie from auteur Bong Joon Ho, are Naomi Ackie (Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker), Toni Collette (Nightmare Alley), and Mark Ruffalo (The Adam Challenge, She-Hulk). It’s been some time for the reason that director’s multi-Oscar haul for Parasite and we couldn’t be extra enthusiastic about this newest growth.
Because the medium of movie continues to get its bearings exterior of blockbusters on the theaters, it’s nice to see one other powerhouse ensemble come collectively for one among our new trendy masters. That mentioned, all we all know concerning the untitled movie is that Bong (whose different credit embody Reminiscences of Homicide, The Host, and Snowpiercer) will likely be each directing and penning the script, which is an adaptation of the lately launched novel Mickey7 by author Edward Ashton. In response to Deadline’s report on the casting information, the guide facilities round Mickey7, who’s often called “an Expendable: a disposable worker on a human expedition despatched to colonize the ice world Niflheim. Each time there’s a mission that’s too harmful—even suicidal—the crew turns to Mickey. After one iteration dies, a brand new physique is regenerated with most of his reminiscences intact.”
In different phrases, we’re going sci-fi and getting some clone motion with Robert Pattinson(s), an actor we like to see dig into heady materials like this. It figures that Ruffalo, Collette, and Ackie will fill out a number of the crew talked about. With the idea of a man who will get cloned and his thoughts respawned (however with a specific amount of self-awareness), we’re getting the power of that Groundhog Day gadget blended with Free Man seen by means of Bong’s genre-mashing imaginative and prescient. No announcement of a manufacturing begin has been made however we’ll wait for an additional Batman film if we will get this one first.
