“Robots” is based on a short story by science fiction writer Robert Sheckley. It focuses on a womanizer and a gold digger who are forced to team up and pursue robot doubles of themselves, who have, in turn, fallen in love and absconded together. Hamel developed the project under his Company Films banner.
Hines will co-direct the film with Casper Christensen (“Klown”). Woodley will star alongside Jack Whitehall, who appears in the upcoming Disney film “Jungle Cruise” and previously starred in the series “Bad Education.”
Rocket Science is handling international sales on the film in the Virtual Cannes Market. CAA Media Finance,
