Bios (D: Miguel Sapochnik) S: Tom Hanks

Tom Hanks will star in “Bios,” the hot spec package making the rounds around town with “Game of Thrones” helmer Miguel Sapochnik directing.

Penned by Craig Luck and Ivor Powell, the story follows a robot that lives on a post-apocalyptic earth. Built to protect the life of his dying creator’s beloved dog, it learns about love, friendship, and the meaning of human life. Hanks will play the ailing creator.

Robert Zemeckis and Kevin Misher is producing.

The package started being shopped around earlier this month and Amblin is the likely landing spot though Legendary and Warner Bros. is still in the mix. Once picked up, the plan is to begin shooting the film in the first quarter of 2018 when Hanks’ schedule frees up.

Hanks can be seen next in Steven Spielberg’s “The Post” as former Washington Post editor-in-chief Ben Bradlee. The film will bow this December and is expected to be an award season contender, as is Hanks. He was recently seen in the STX thriller “The Circle.”

Sapochnik is best known for his work on the fan-favorite “Game of Thrones” episode “Battle of the Bastards,” which earned him an Emmy for best directing.

Hanks is represented by CAA and Sapochnik is repped by WME.

A robot protecting a dog.

That sounds great but movies about a dog as a main character are tough for me.

Add zombies and Will Smith and I think we have something.

Movies about dogs only exist to make audiences cry.
