Colin Farrell to star in A24 robot drama "After Yang" https://t.co/HEI4BYuLBW— Variety (@Variety) February 28, 2019
Can't get enough of your boy Colin Farrell? After teaming up again with director Yorgos Lanthimos for an Amazon show about Oliver North and singing up for Andrew Haigh’s thriller series ‘The North Water’ for BBC, Colin is set to star in Korean-born filmmaker Kogonada's robot drama ‘After Yang’. The movie centers on a father and daughter as they try to save the life of their robotic family member Yang in a world where robotic children are purchased as live-in-babysitters. In the story, Yang has been programmed to help his little sister learn about her cultural heritage. And if you're not familiar with Kogonada's work, I'd suggest seeing his stunning 2017 debut ‘Columbus’ starring John Cho, Haley Lu Richardson and Parker Posey.
