"In other methods of acting, actors involve their own life experiences in the role, but Erica has no life experiences," one of the movie's writers explained

This soon-to-be movie star may not have a pulse, but she's ready for her close-up! Earlier this week, production companies BondIt Capital Media, Happy Moon Productions, Life Entertainment and Ten Ten Global Media announced an upcoming sci-fi movie titled b, according to The Hollywood Reporter. A robot named Erica has been cast as the face of the movie, which tells the story of a scientist working on a human DNA experiment who helps an A.I. woman (played by Erica) escape a laboratory.

b is written by Sam Khoze, Eric Pham and Tarek Zohdy. A director is not yet attached to the project, nor are any human costars. IRL, Erica was invented by Hiroshi Ishiguro and Kohei Ogawa, Japanese scientists who study robotics. Khoze told THR about how they pulled off the A.I. actress' performance, with some scenes already shot last year. "In other methods of acting, actors involve their own life experiences in the role, but Erica has no life experiences," said Khoze. "She was created from scratch to play the role. We had to simulate her motions and emotions through one-on-one sessions, such as controlling the speed of her movements, talking through her feelings and coaching character development and body language."
