Megan Fox (Transformers, TMNT) and Michele Morrone (365 Days) are on board to co-star in the sci-fi thriller Subservience, Deadline reports, from The Hitman’s Bodyguard production banner Millennium Media.

S.K. Dale will direct the project, reuniting Dale and Fox for the first time since Till Death. Escape Room: Tournament of Champion scribe Will Honley and Lost Girls writer April Maguire will pen the screenplay.

Subservience is due to begin filming in early January. The film is about a struggling father (Morrone) who purchases a domestic SIM (Fox) to help care for his house and family… until she gains awareness and turns deadly.

Millennium recently finished production on Red Sonja, an action comic book adaptation starring Matilda Lutz in the titular role, Wallis Day, and Robert Sheehan.

Jeffrey Greenstein, President of Millennium, wrote that “Megan and Michele are perfect for this timely and provocative thriller. As Megan’s third film with us, this high concept and topical subject makes for a cautionary tale of AI and the frighteningly real dangers that could rise. With the addition of the talented Michele to add an extra layer of spice as our leading man, we are excited to see leading lady Megan and S.K. team up again with Megan lending her acting talents to an incredibly layered character.”

Here’s to a 2023 of spooky artificial intelligences called Megan becoming sentient! (Don’t forget M3gan is releasing January 13th).
