About Netflix's 'The Electric State':

Stålenhag's other graphic novel, Tales from the Loop, was adapted for Amazon Prime Video. The Electric State is an adaptation of Simon Stålenhag's sci-fi graphic novel, which was released in 2018 and is known for its striking illustrations. Described as a mix between Stranger Things and On The Road, the book has garnered critical acclaim.

"Set in a post-apocalyptic 1997, The Electric State is the story of Michelle, who, accompanied by her toy robot Skip, sets out across the western United States in a stolen car to find her missing brother. Told in achingly melancholy, spare prose and featuring almost a hundred gorgeous, full-color illustrations, The Electric State is a novel like no other."

AGBO is a filmmaking company established by Anthony and Joe Russo, who first acquired the rights to the narrative in 2017. In December 2020, Deadline revealed that Universal had bought the property from AGBO and that Stranger Things' Millie Bobby Brown would be playing Michelle. The film will be directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, who was already hired as directors.

Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, who co-wrote The Avengers and Captain America with the Russo brothers, created the film's plot. The movie will follow the book's major events as they are told by a young girl named Michelle, who goes on a trip with her brother's robotic companion.

The book's hardcover is packed with evocative images, and the video below gives us a taste of what we could expect from a movie adaptation.

Now, it seems that the feature film will be released on Netflix instead of getting a theatrical release, as was initially planned.

According to our sources, the casting for The Electric State is currently seeking numerous parts, including Young Michelle and Christopher. The project has been called "Stormwind" under a working title.

Currently, production for The Electric State is keeping to the proposed timeline from the Deadline article. Cameras are set to roll between October 2022 and February 2023, and they will be filmed in Atlanta, Georgia.

Even though we're now two years into the future, this is still the newest project Netflix has collaborated on with AGBO. Their most significant project to date is undoubtedly The Gray Man, which will be available on Netflix in July 2022. They are also working on the production of Extraction, which will have its second installment in 2023.

The company is producing the upcoming Noah Hawley thriller starring Regé-Jean Page, and earlier this year, we reported that Netflix was eyeing their optioned adaptation of The Whisper Man.

Given that Brown is still attached to the project, this Netflix endeavor is one of several significant projects she has in development.

Eartha May's breakout role in Stranger Things is still ongoing, with the first season having released at the end of May 2022. She is filming Damsel for Netflix and set to appear in Enola Holmes 2, The Girls I've Been, and the yet-to-be-confirmed The Thing About Jellyfish.

We'll update you on all things The Electric State as soon as we have more information.
