Michelle Yeoh and Stanley Tucci are among those joining the Russo Brothers’ next Netflix film The Electric State, joining an already stacked cast.
Michelle Yeoh and Stanley Tucci have been added to the already impressive cast of the Russo Brothers’ next Netflix movie, The Electric State, after the directing duo’s summer hit The Gray Man. Joe and Anthony Russo have become known for their high-stakes action flicks, especially their Marvel Cinematic Universe films. Yeoh is no stranger to action movies either, portraying Ying Nan in 2021’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, and recently starring in the A24 hit Everything Everywhere All At Once. Tucci also had his own stint in the MCU as Dr. Abraham Erskine in Captain America: The First Avenger.
Now, Netflix reports that Yeoh and Tucci have joined the cast of the Russo Brothers’ follow-up to The Gray Man. Also included in the casting announcement are Jason Alexander, Jenny Slate, and Brian Cox; the latter two will be filling in vocal roles. The film, The Electric State, follows an orphaned young woman as she travels across the western United States with two companions, one who is a robot, and the other who is on a mission to find her lost brother. It is based on the graphic novel of the same name.
The Electric State already has an impressive cast. Millie Bobby Brown was added back in 2020, and Chris Pratt joined earlier this year. Since leaving the MCU, the Russos have continued to attract exciting talent, from Cherry‘s Tom Holland to The Gray Man‘s Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans. It’s no surprise that The Electric State has a similarly thrilling ensemble. There is no word on when the movie will premiere on Netflix, but production is expected to start this fall.
