Sony announces new film The Mitchells Vs. the Machines


Sony Pictures Animation has announced a new film called The Mitchells Vs. the Machines. Produced by Chris Miller and Phil Lord (Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, The LEGO Movie, 21 Jump Street), the original CG comedy will launch theatrically on January 10, 2020.

Here’s the story synopsis:

The Mitchells are a dysfunctional but loving family whose road trip is interrupted by a tech uprising that threatens mankind, when the electronic devices people love — from phones, to self-driving cars, to a sleek new line of personal robots — turn on humanity. With the help of two malfunctioning robots and the family’s delightfully overweight pug, the Mitchells will have to get past their problems and work together to save each other and the world.

In addition to Lord and Miller, the movie will be produced by Kurt Albrecht. The film will be directed by Mike Rianda (creative director of Gravity Falls) and Jeff Rowe (writer on various Gravity Falls episodes), who both co-wrote the script.

Having been the creative minds behind a number of box office hits, the Lord and Miller are some of Hollywood’s most in-demand people. The duo serve as the writers (alongside Gravity Falls creator Alex Hirsh) and producers on fellow Sony Pictures Animation film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, due out theatrically this December.
