The Surrogates

The photo that you see above comes to us this morning from the fine sci-fi geeks over at, who have uncovered some awesome new details about the upcoming Disney/Touchstone film The Surrogates. The film is set in a futuristic world in which humans have naturally evolved into hermits (lets face it, we know it’s going to happen) by creating identical robots that can go out and live their lives while they sit around and watch American Idol reruns (Oh, how I do love that David Archuleta). Bruce Willis plays a cop who ventures out of his home for the first time in a long time in order to investigate some robot-on-robot killings. What ensues is probably along the lines of iRobot, but with a few less instances of “Aw Hell Naw!”

The production is currently taking place all over Massachusetts under the name “VSI”, which is short for Virtual Self Inc., the fictional company that makes these robot lookalikes. Another interesting fact about the production is that a casting call went out in April calling for young, sexy surrogates. Sources have told i09 that the surrogates are supposed to be like perfect humans, thus the film will be filled with beautiful people.

This brings me to the real question of the day: If you had a surrogate, who would it look like? Mine would probably look like Tom Sizemore, just for fun.

For more photos of the on-set models and a full report, just click on either of the two photos above and be transported over to i09. The Surrogates is scheduled for a November 20, 2009 release.

Sound Off: Seriously, if you could have a surrogate, who would it look like?
