An Image Nation-financed film starring Tom Hanks and Emma Watson is set for theatrical release on April 28th 2017.


The thriller based on the international bestseller by Dave Eggers is written and directed by James Ponsoldt.


Hanks plays the founder of the world’s largest tech and social media company. He encourages Watson’s character, who’s rising through the company ranks, to live her life with complete transparency — but no one is really safe when everyone is watching. The novel turns into a contemporary thriller about the perils of life in a digital age where personal data is collected, sifted and monetized and used for surveillance, rendering privacy obsolete.


The film is presented in association with Parkes Macdonald Productions.
