Edgar Wright will direct new sci-fi film – Set My Heart To Five

It looks like Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Baby Driver) will be directing a film adaptation of Simon Stephenson’s novel, Set My Heart To Five. Stephenson will be writing the screenplay, which follows Jared, an android, who undergoes an emotional awakening and embarks on a quest to convince humans that he and his kind should be permitted to feel.

10/10 Jared does not have friends.
Because friends are a function of feelings.
Therefore friends are just one more human obligation that Jared never has to worry about.

But Jared is worrying. Which is worrying. He’s also started watching old films. And inexplicably crying in them. And even his Feelings Wheel (given to him by Dr Glundenstein, who definitely is not a friend) cannot guide him through the emotional minefield he now finds himself in.

Soon his feelings will send him fleeing across the country, pursued by a man who wants to destroy him and driven by an illogical desire to share pathogens with the woman who bamboozles him the most.

And Jared cannot!

Because feelings will ruin your life, especially if you aren’t supposed to have them…

The book is due out on 28th May 2020 via HarperCollins imprints Hanover Square Press (U.S.) and 4th Estate (UK).

Edgar Wright’s next movie is the psychological thriller Last Night in Soho starring Anya Taylor-Joy, Thomasin McKenzie, and Matt Smith. It’s currently scheduled to be released on September 25.
