Tom Hanks Sci-Fi Film ‘Finch’ Heads To Apple

Apple continues to put their money into Tom Hanks as much as possible, which is a pretty damn good investment. After working with him on Greyhound, and the upcoming WWII series Masters of the Air, they’ve now acquired for Apple TV+ his sci-fi film Finch, which had been going under the title Bios.

Finch is directed by Miguel Sapochnik, best known for his work on Repo Men and Game of Thrones. The story centers on an aging inventor, the last human on Earth, who journeys across the country with his dog and a robot he built named Jeff.

Also in the cast are Caleb Landry Jones, Samira Wiley, Laura Harrier, and Skeet Ulrich.

So it’s another road trip movie for Hanks, following on last year’s News of the World. I’m sure Apple is hoping Finch gets similar accolades come awards season, because that’s likely the release date they’ll shoot for. [Deadline]
