Apple Lands-Tom-Hanks Film ‘Finch’
Apple has landed another Tom Hanks film for Apple TV+,
reports Deadline. The company won a competitive auction
on the weekend for ‘Finch’, an Amblin Entertainment sci-fi
film previously called Bios.
In Finch, a man, a robot and a dog form an unlikely family, as the
man tries to ensure his beloved canine companion will be cared for
after he’s gone. Hanks stars as Finch, a robotics engineer and one of
the few survivors of a cataclysmic solar event that has left the world a
wasteland. Finch, who has been living in an underground bunker for
a decade, has built a world of his own that he shares with his dog, Goodyear.
He creates a robot (played by Get Out‘s Caleb Landry Jones) to watch over
Goodyear when he no longer can. As the trio embarks on a perilous journey
into a desolate American West, Finch strives to show his creation the joy
and wonder of what it means to be alive.

Originally to be released by Universal, Apple is now expected to premiere
the film in awards season, perhaps with a qualifying theatrical run.
Apple saw success with the Tom Hanks film Greyhound which it acquired
from Sony Pictures. It’s likely hoping to replicate that success with Finch.
