Apple has acquired “Dolly,” an upcoming film which is set to star Academy Award nominee Florence Pugh, as reported by Deadline. Pugh is best known for her roles in “Midsommar” and “Little Women.”
Reports suggest Apple had to go through some “competitive bidding war” to get the rights of the movie. “Dolly” is a sci-fi drama where a robotic companion doll kills its owner and shocks the world by claiming her innocence. The film is inspired by Elizabeth Bear’s short story of the same name and will be written by two famous writers Vanessa Taylor and Drew Pearce.
Whatsoever, the project has not sparked as the script has not been written and the film still waits for a director.
Insiders close to the project stress the project is not greenlit at this time as the script still needs to penned and a director still needs to be attached.
The film will join several other Apple TV Plus movies including “Ghostwriter,” “Becoming You,” “Palmer,” and more. To browse for movies, open the Apple TV app then in the menu bar swipe to Movies and browse featured movies, genres, and collections.
