Booth will play Maria, one of the lead characters in the movie, directed by Lang and written by Thea Von Harbou.

Middleton plays the series’ lead Finnie Polito, a new character, as the TV adaptation tells a new story.

Metropolis is executive produced by Esmail via his deal with UCP, a division of Universal Studio Group, and Chad Hamilton, via Anonymous Content.
