“Hot Fuzz” and “Baby Driver” helmer Edgar Wright is attached to direct “Set My Heart to Five” for Working Title Films, Focus Features, and Compete Fiction Pictures.
Based on Simon Stephenson’s debut novel and set in an all-too human 2054, the story follows the android Jared who undergoes an emotional awakening and embarks on a quest to convince humans that he and his kind should be permitted to feel.
Said quest, sparked in part by Jared’s introduction to 1980’s and 1990’s movies, leads to an unforgettable adventure across the West Coast of America after he determines to write a film script that will change the world.
Stephenson will adapt the screenplay from his own manuscript. Wright’s new film, psychological thriller “Last Night in Soho,” completed filming before the shutdown and is currently scheduled for a September 25th release.
