According to Variety, directors Anthony and Joe Russo have chosen four additional stars for their upcoming Netflix-partnered film, titled “The Electric State.”

The names are Anthony Mackie (“The Falcon and the Winter Soldier”), Giancarlo Esposito (“The Boys”), Billy Bob Thornton (“Fargo”) and Ke Huy Quan (“Everything is everywhere at once”) .

Apparently, Esposito and Quan will appear in the film, while Mackie and Thornton will voice AI characters.

Esposito will also voice one of the robots, but his main job in the film will be as one of the antagonists.

Quan will replace Michelle Yeoh (‘Everything Everywhere at the Same Time’), playing a doctor wanted by the characters of Chris Pratt (‘Guardians of the Galaxy’) and Millie Bobbie Brown (‘Stranger Things’).

The project will also bring Brian Cox (“Succession”), Stanley Tucci (“A Look from Heaven”), Jason Alexander (“Seinfeld”) and Jenny Slate (“Come Back to Me”) to the cast.

Set in a dystopian future, the plot follows the journey of a teenager, a robot and a thug through the roads of the United States.

Recalling that Anthony and Joe Russo directed ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ (2018) and ‘Avengers: Endgame’ (2019) for Marvel Studios. “The Electric State” will be the duo’s second project for Netflix, following “The Hidden Agent.”

Based on the graphic novel “Tales from the Loop” by author Simon Stålenhag, which previously won an Apple TV+ supervised anthology, “The Electric State” is set in an alternate future where humans and robots live together in a relative harmony – and a young teenage girl (Brown) realizes that her new robot friend was actually sent to her by her missing brother. The two then embarked on a mission to find him, uncovering a massive conspiracy along the way.

Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely (“Avengers: Endgame”) are writing the screenplay.

A few weeks ago, Digital Spy released the first behind-the-scenes footage, featuring Brown filming a beach scene.
