The Electric State, which is being developed and directed by The Russo Brothers, is one of our most anticipated forthcoming Netflix films. 

Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming film, which stars Millie Bobby Brown and Chris Pratt and will be released in October 2022.  

The book was released in December of 2017. In December 2017, the Russo Brothers obtained the rights to the sci-fi novel, with Andy Muschietti (It) vying for the director’s chair and Barbara Muschietti set to produce. 

Millie Bobby Brown will feature in the film, which will be directed by the Russo Brothers and written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. It was scheduled to be released in theatres. 

We exclusively revealed that Netflix is considering taking over the project in June 2022. The project will be officially acquired by Netflix in 2022, with an announcement expected in late June 2022. 

The film is directed by the Russo Brothers, who also run the production company AGBO. The Russo brothers are best recognised for their work on Marvel’s The Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame.  

They’ve also directed various projects throughout the years, including The Gray Man, a recent Netflix action film 

The duo is currently working on at least seven new Netflix projects, including Extraction 2, Past Midnight, The Bluff, and The Gray Man 2. The project’s writers and executive producers are Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. 

The project’s casting directors are Sarah Finn and Tara Feldstein. The film will have a budget of $200 million, which is the same as the amount allotted to the Russo Brothers’ previous great hit for Netflix, The Gray Man.
