Mr. Robot show creator/showrunner Sam Esmail and its star Rami Malek will translate the undercover story for the big-screen. The two will also produce. The material has faint echoes of their TV series—entering its fourth season later on this year—which centers on a cybersecurity hacker who joins an underground anarchist group.
Malek will notably star as Freddie Mercury, in the late singer's biopic Bohemian Rhapsody, to be released November 2nd. He is also lending a voice to a character in Universal's live-action/CG hybrid, Dr. Doolittle.
