Not only is Ewan McGregor on a quest to perfect the science of relationships in Amazon’s upcoming Zoe, but he’s also created a synthetic human being in the sci-fi film. Only, unlike other films of this sort, the synthetic human doesn’t pick up a weapon and go on a rampage. Rather, it looks like the woman Ewan’s character love falls in love with… his own creation.
Oops. Maybe creating the perfect man wasn’t the best idea, Ewan.
Zoe will hit Amazon Prime Video on July 20.
Written by Rich Greenberg (The Beauty Inside) and directed by Drake Doremus (Like Crazy), Zoe follows two colleagues at a revolutionary research lab who design technology to improve and perfect romantic relationships. As their work progresses, their discoveries become more profound than they could ever have imagined.
The cast also includes Léa Seydoux (Spectre), Christina Aguilera (Burlesque), Theo James (Divergent), Rashida Jones (Parks and Recreation) and Miranda Otto (Homeland).
