Young Ones Sales Art

I love some good sci-fi, as always. Found at AFM by Collider is a sales banner for an indie sci-fi film called Young Ones being written/directed by Jake Paltrow, brother of Gwyneth, who directed The Good Night in 2007. The art features what looks like a young boy—but might be a girl, as the latest casting updated on IONCinema as of March this year, had Elle Fanning attached, but maybe this is just temporary promo art. The tagline says "Not all Children have a Childhood", and there's a floating robot that resembles the Hoth probe droid from Empire Strikes Back, if it isn't just a direct lift. It's just early art, but check it out anyway.

Click below to be taken back to Collider, where they've got some awesome AFM coverage. Here's the banner:

There's not many details we can find about it, but here's the premise from IONCinema: "Think the antithesis of a certain 1995 Kevin Costner film, this takes place in the near future, where water is a scarce commodity. A teenage cowboy is grieving over the death of his father when he discovers that his fathers' killer has moved in with his sister, and the introduction of sci-fi technology threatens to claim more lives." So I feel like there's a lot missing from that, including what this droid is and who the kid is and what else goes on. Word is Casey Affleck and Jamie Bell might also be cast in this futuristic sci-fi, and Noah Baumbach is producing. Looks like they're trying to get some financing at AFM, we'll let you know if we hear any updates.

love me some good sci-fi too, but for some reason, when i read the tagline, all i could think of was, "Michael Jackson!"

"I'm Petay Pan, I'm gonna live forever like a child". Posyer is good though.

That robot isn't floating.  It's running. Like a dog. Away from camera.

I see it now. Like those newfangled military quadrupeds

I know it's completely different, but I get a "Boy and His Dog" vibe from this.  Now that I think about it, I find it surprising H-wood hasn't remade that already.

srry for my bad spelling but if you look at this picture you can kinda tell at the feet of the machine its feet are planted in the ground and dust is flying for where its feet are. so its more like something the kid is walking twords instead of something hes walking with, i think it would be great to have a FalloutMadMaxx type setting for a movie it seem like vampire are coming back into popularity but i personly love the "Post Apoc" type setting.. =))

Definitely getting the A Boy and his Dog vibe from it. I'm not worried about it seeming too much like a remake though.
